    What does "hull entry" do for a board?

    Couldn't agree more. It also would be sweet to have a wave pool nearby with varying types of waves on offer like I believe I read about one of the Australian pools. Being an easy coast surfer with swells sometimes lasting only a few hours it would be nice to be able to get comfortable on a new...

    How was your surf today?....share your stoke!

    That has to be one of the best stringer/color combinations I've ever seen on a board.

    How was your surf today?....share your stoke!

    I had one of our inlet breaks all to myself for about an hour on Saturday night. Long, waist high lefts peeling off with the sun setting to the west and dolphins surfing in the waves at one point. For a moment I thought one was going to join me on the nose of my glider as I was paddling back...

    I have to second applebutters comments about Brom above. I ordered a fish from Steve last week. Within a day of the initial correspondence he called me and we spent 30+ minutes on the phone talking about the board and some of the history of the design and surfing in general. Maybe the best...

    Barbados, what’s the scoop?

    Thanks I didn't know that I'll leave my camo speedo at home but my wife will be pretty disappointed :)

    Barbados, what’s the scoop?

    That's true I don't like boards sitting in the car when it's piping hot. With American airlines new policy of $35 for the first 2bags surfboards included it's cheap to bring 2bags and you never know what to expect

    Barbados, what’s the scoop?

    I enjoy shortboarding in the right waves. I'm bringing two, and a larmo fish and honey badger. Is it relatively safe? Can you leave a board in a locked car at Soup Bowls and freights bay/south point or better not to tempt fate?

    Barbados, what’s the scoop?

    Good call I would definitely like to hit freights bay and south point while we're there too. I thought soup bowls being consistent would be a good place to stay but maybe it would make more sense to stay near one of the other spots knowing that I could always drive to soup bowls if they aren't...

    Any recommendations on places to stay down there within walking distance to soup bowls?

    Reference - Nozzle vs Fish Simmons

    This is exactly why I'm struggling to decide. There is nothing like the down the line speed of a traditional fish. But sometimes it would've nice to have a little more control. Thanks for your post. Hopefully someone else has surfed a smaller drifter and can comment on the differences.

    Reference - Nozzle vs Fish Simmons

    I wanted to revive this post to ask if anyone has surfed a smaller drifter/fish Simmons with a thruster setup. I have an order in with MM for a 5'9 fish and still have time to decide whether it's going to be a DH template with keels or drifter/fish Simmons with thrusters. Ive read a lot about...

    I've never experienced this phenomenon.
