South of the Tracks | Degree33 Goes to Baja

May 31, 2013 8 Comments

The Degree33 team heads south of the boarder to cut loose on a quiver of new Degree33 boards. With a modest, clean swell on the horizon, we frothed at the idea of getting awesome footage of our boards in action. Once the reels came in we realized it wasn't just about the boards or the footage anymore. Watching just a rough edit, filmed and created by our own Jeremy Patterson, we were inspired beyond the idea of a recon mission. This is a glimpse into the heart of surfing. Having surfed our own breaks a thousand times, we've let it become a part of the daily grind. The following short exemplifies the raw soul of surfing in the southwest and reminds us that there is an adventure just around the corner if we choose to look...

As a beginner, I have picked up the mechanics of surfing quickly. I have immersed myself in learning about the culture & sub-cultures of surfing, surfers, and local spots. While I am new to this life style, I know that I had a surfers soul from an early age. Finding spots to surf has been a wonderful experience on my journey of finding myself, the breaks I enjoy, the type of board I am looking to invest in. And, the locals I give respect to. This video provides an open, unobstructed lens into the lives of those who look for their next ride with utter enjoyment and phantasm. The really real look at what we all strive for when we gear up for a road trip.

Not taking anything away from the pro boys and lord only knows the surf market is absolutely a thriving one, but documentaries like this are why all of us live every day for another wave.

Nice. It looked like a fun day. This brought back a few memories of arriving at Rincon in the middle of the night with a friend, catching a little sleep in his ’64 impala until sun-up then having the place virtually all to ourselves in the morning, shoulder-high. Or similarly, arriving at the crack-of-dawn with a pal up north at Willow Creek and surfing calm glass alone until we were satiated, then sitting on the beach for another hour and quietly watching glassy peaks in their perfect solitude. Sometimes it IS more about the SOUL than the SURFING.

Fin Guide: How they work and which is the best for you

The fin is the most foundational element of your surfboard. Unless you are riding a finless board, the entire surfboard is shaped to work with the fin; design elements like concave and rocker mean little without a fin, and one couldn't imagine a fish without a twin or quad, or a high performance shortboard with a single fin.

The tube ride is the pinnacle of surfing. It is, and forever will be, the best sensation a surfer can experience.

This blog will focus on frontside barrel riding, and will touch on how to find a tube, and how to get tubed once you find one.
