Re: Where did you surf today ?

I can turn the 6'5" up and down in hollower-base surf. The 6'1" I can surf up and down whenever, it's a bit wider thus has a lot more outline curve. Really you can do whatever you want on any board if you are willing to figure it out. That's kinda the mission here. I've been too reserved in my use o...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Swell has muscled up down the coast this morning. Solid double over head at least at local magnets, too big for the beaches. WSW blowing fairly hard, has killed off a few spots. Not here yet, it'd better show. I'm not putting up with these 10 channels for no reason god damn it Are you even going to...

There's some optical illusion going on with the spray, but that tail still looks very foiled?
Yeah it’s very narrow, sorta single fin outline, three fin set up a bit further up the board than normal. It’s like someone took a 7’2” Pipe board and shrunk it to 6’1”

Anything I feel like

Handles power and late takeoff to tube combos beautifully but also very smooth in open face turns. I'll write a piece on it somewhere.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Inspired by Hatchnam, I am going to ride nothing but single fins for the next two weeks.

Ten channel single fins.

I’ll report back.

Re: Epoxy boards

That said I saw an American guy get out of the water yesterday morning with a SD SciFi, the thing had just exploded. I took a close look and was stunned, the lamination was like paper, the apparent “carbon” clearly wasn’t, and the high density foam bar along the board had simply ruptured. The styrof...
