We're getting down to the wire for the 8th annual 100 Wave Challenge! Our team is 12 members strong and our goal is to raise $20000, so almost $1700 a piece. The last time we talked, you guys helped us raise $2000 in less than 72 hours.
This event will be held in Del Mar at Powerhouse Park (next to Jakes Restaurant.) We'll have our full quiver lined up on the north end of the lawn and an Ez-Up for catching a breather between surfs. We firmly believe that the customer experience is greatly enhanced when you get a chance to ride it before you buy it.
At Degree33 Surfboards, we don’t take the 100 Wave Challenge lightly. We don’t take the Boys to Men Mentoring Network lightly. When September rolls around, Degree33 Surfboards is absolutely FROTHING to create a better future for San Diego’s at-risk youths.
We're absolutely FROTHING over this new trio called the "Mexican Blanket Series" with a carefully selected bundle of some of our shop favorites. While they're most impressive in summer conditions when shortboards aren't enough foam and crowds make longboards a little tough to swing around, each of these boards have remained go-to's year round through some solid swell.
Over the last year we've been extensively building boards with different colors, tints, stringers, fin setups, resin finishes, inlays... you name it... we've tried it.
Buying a new surfboard without getting a chance to test drive it, is like driving a car off the lot before taking it around the block first, you might hate the way it rides once you get it up to speed. Unfortunately for us surfers, that's the way it's always been.
Many of us have ridden factory stock, improperly sized fins for YEARS not realizing we'd been hurting our surfing the entire time. There were so many aspects to fins that we really hadn’t even figured in, worst of all, the basics.
THIS is one of the most exciting aspects of being a part of Degree Surfboards and riding along with us on our journey… Nobody loves new surfboard like you guys (except us). Every few seasons we mix it up, picking out a few new colors to try out, sending a handful of one-of-a-kind surfboards through production. We used to just let be sold just like any other of the standard colors in that model, but we thought we'd shake it up a little bit, so here's the deal...
Earlier in the year, we asked Bill if he knew anybody that would be a good fit as a humble, stylish and wave hungry surfer that could put our longboards to the test and help us progress the traditional end of our quiver. In an instant, he had a name and a grin...
