Hello Jammers,


I had some people interested in my platform on this forum so I wanted to keep everyone in the loop. I developed a different way of reviewing surfboards with more of a slight story line. 3 For 30 was developed to give a real and unbiased review of both underground shapers and also national brands. 3 different boards surfed for 30 days by an average surfer in average surf. I just released episode 2 of my surfboard reviews and if your interested in checking it out I attached a link below.

FOR THE RECORD: It was never my intention to use Jamboards as a way to promote my SCU review. I posted a link in a forum speaking about a particular board I reviewed and the response was very positive. So with that said I appreciate the support from anyone interested in checking it out.

This is actually a perfect place to air those episodes because these are the folks you are trying to reach. After watching the two episodes you have listed, I would suggest using some softer introduction music. The hard rock approach may work well for surf movies trying to embellish charging big waves or whatever, but a little harsh for a review program, in my opinion that is.

Secondly, you might want to think about adding another surfer's perspective in conjunction with your own opinion. It doesn't have to be that "point/counterpoint" approach, but two people who can come to an agreement on the pros and cons most of the time might be more helpful to those of us who are really looking for some guidance with a particular product.

Thirdly, please keep it apolitical. I am not suggesting that you are not doing that now. However, if something digresses into "product placement", people will soon pick up on that.

Good luck and keep them coming.

Another thought... get some sound deadening for your studio to cut down on the echo. Some fabric wall hangings would prob work.

I appreciate the feedback this is good stuff. So actually the most current episode it will have a second opinion on the boards. Issue is trying to keep the length at a decent timeframe without really hitting the 45 minute range. Music wise I am looking to switch around in the future. There is a strong music scene in my area that I am trying to help out. Product placement is gross your absolutely right. But I am just talking about products that I use in my everyday life that people often ask me about. Again I do appreciate the feedback and I will certainly keep them coming.

I wish that was my studio. It’s a friends barber shop that i use when they are closed. So as far as putting up fabric I unfortunately can’t do that.
