Just wondered. Does anyone surf Robert August boards anymore? I don’t know anyone that does and I very rarely see anyone out on one anymore. I use to like his boards though I haven’t had one myself for sometime.

I see Tuflite What I Ride's occasionally
Yeah it’s been a really long time sense I’ve seen a Tufflite . Those boards did tend to hold up pretty well though .. You know I follow Wingnut on Insta and even he rides a lot of FireWire stuff and other these days. I bet alot of younger people don’t even know who Robert August these days

Here, he's mainly known for starring in the Endless Summer. I also never regarded him as a cutting edge shaper.

I saw a guy a few weeks ago in a ra midlength of some sort. Looked like an 8’ egg sort of thing. Guy surfed it well.

I rented a surftec wir for an afternoon on a Hawaii trip a few years ago. Worked well enough for small waves.

Other than like said I rarely see his brand around.

Yeah. And even though I don’t surf one . A bit sad in my opinion that his brand is dying out of sorts
