After a long week of what seemed like nonstop wind, rain, and moodiness from the coast, we arrived to the beach STOKED Saturday morning to not a single cloud in the sky.
It was a great morning with plenty of waves.
We partnered with a local non profit Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship to put on a learn-to-surf event for their members. Even with some extra wave size on the outside, there was plenty of whitewater to get some new surfers on their first wave!
This particular group was a worldwide representation of Rotarians from several countries, including Australia and Canada.
Kieran prepares his GoPro for a surf session on a new Degree 33 Ultimate. With the recent run of waves, it was the perfect day to push some of our more "user-friendly" models to the test of some wave power. Kieran took out several models from the Ultimate, Easy Rider, and the Poacher, and it looks like he had some fun with it.
Kieran takes off on a solid set wave riding a new 8’ Ultimate epoxy Longboard.
We had an amazing group of volunteers helping new surfers get stoked. Thanks to our ambassadors, friends and family who came out and made this day a great one!
There are literally hundreds of different brands of surf accessories out there but there really is only a short list of items you need to go surfing. This is one of the most amazing elements of surfing is the simplicity of the lifestyle. Basically a board and you and you are all set but there are a few things you want to have ready before you paddle out.
We often meet people who buy surfboards without any understanding on what their shape will do. They often say they picked the board because it simply "looks cool" and come to find out the hard way that it does not ride the way they expected. Beyond the basics of general board shape, each shape has certain characteristics that makes those boards behave in the specific way that they do. To help you understand what is making your board behave like it does we have compiled a surface level over...
You may be asking yourself the question "What's the difference between all the surfboard shapes I see?"
The overall shape of your board, (taking into account nose & tail shape) will essentially determine how your board performs.
Most boards fit into a general category, in which the other boards in that category will also have similarly shaped noses and general outlines.
