Back At It!

Will be doing at least 1 post per week. Time to bring the blog back.

Here's what I've been riding lately and just tripping out on the design. This is my 5th board from Daniel Thomson of Tomo Surfboards:

This one's a nano mini simmons. Looks like a mini simmons but rides like a turbo HPSB. 5'7x19.5x2.5 but rail volume feels more like 2.25". Foiled out, low volume HP!

Here's DT riding one of the first nanos:

wish I could surf like him! More on the fins and the design later...

The Bay is already breaking in Hawaii and waves even in So-cal are forecasted to hit Double Overhead+

Hang on...

Been riding these Rainbow Speedwing fins as a quad set-up in my trusty old 5'11 Zamora HP-Fish. Those little winglets break up the cavitation (unstable water at the tip of the fin). Serious speed and way less drag than w/ a standard front fin. Very stoked on how you can feel the difference, especially when pushing them hard. No wonder the commercial airlines use them. Saves fuel and increases speed.

More SUBB: Stand Up Boogie Boarding. This guys got some serious talent!

Also that's a spot that I grew up surfing. Wonder how the old school crowd is doing there: Donald Day, Wilson, Chaka (Darren), Tre... Some of the rippers that inspired my surfing youth.

Stand Up Boogie Boarding (SUBB)

This is how I got my start into the surfing world back when I was 10 years old. I started standing on my boogie and my bro was like "that's it buddy, it's time to get you a surfboard!" and the rest is history...

The guys in the vid are getting shacks that would make any surfer jealous, great stuff!
