    Quad Fin Eggs.... What's the deal?

    quads grab/set the rail on the wave face earlier going over the ledge = quicker into a high line speed run... and quads are faster then a 2+1 in haul ass waves from not having that rear fin anchoring the tail and how the quad fins work together to generate more speed when pumping those mid face...

    Quad Fin Eggs.... What's the deal?

    2+1 for average/soft waves, quad when the offshores hit and the need for speed is real...adds another gear

    Is there a non-annoying leash out there?

    size accordingly...and never noticed any restraint in doing so...on LB's I use a thigh wrap, sized just long enough for those rare times I actually make it to the nose in OR zippy beachbreak

    Is there a non-annoying leash out there?

    try surfing with your leash on your forward foot with the leash horn outboard...less to tangle, less to drag behind...been doing that for many years, pretty much zero's out leash tangles...and the added entertainment of some guy who says "uh, hey man, you got the leash on the wrong foot"...lol

    A Slice of Santa Barbara Surfing History

    Had ranch boats for a coupla decade and at times scored waves that were as much fun as surf can be... and as well dealt with midnite runs from HMB only to find at dawn the pier winch was yet again sabotaged with a resin dump...or boated in only to find surf that couldn't even lure us out of the...

    Cities to Surf and raise a family in that are somewhat affordable?

    my preferred local for the past decade.. the locals want less rentals and more home inventory, the municipality wants to maintain the 10% nightly rental tax revenue...low inventory due to investment rental demand, 500K will still buy a decent pad by the beach...
