Foamies

After watching regular clips of Jamie O’Brien getting shacked at Pipe on a 9’ bright pink foamie it’s time to admit that all surfboard design is irrelevant to performance.

I've watched a few of those vids. Insane, especially charging shorebreaks. Softboards have come a long way

My Chopstick fcuking kills it. 60/40 rails. I occasionally drag something else out but unless you want to nose ride there’s not much performance advantage in riding a fibreglass mal in typical Bondi conditions.

If I surfed bondage regularly some kind of softboard would definitely be appealing. Actually, wouldn't be a bad idea at collaroy on a sunday

Softlite are way ahead of the pack IMHO.
