swim fins

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

If you are looking into buying some new fins for summer, check this page for links to manufacturers, some Greenough modifications, and these great thrust tests. I had no idea you should take this much care when buying flappers. I was just going to pop out and get some churchills, but if Greenough’s in the UDTs… :D

Quicksilver Vid

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

I believe this a bonus section from Quiksilver’s Young Guns 2 DVD. It’s got Ry Craike, Troy Brooks, Dane Reynolds and Jeremy Flores going off in some solid AUS beach break.

Boardroom April 06

Friday, April 28th, 2006

SurferMag.com article on Jake Moss. I met Jake Moss in the water at a little break I can’t tell you about. Really nice guy, good surfer, beautiful boards. Video of his shapes in action at a Baja pointbreak.

The Swift Movement is moving right along, prison tatoo logo and all. My friend Andy tells me it involves Richard Kenvin who helped start the Kane Garden explosion. Their website reveals some surfers and shapers who’s names don’t grace the mags often enough. Wayne Lynch, Rich Pavel, NPJ, Andrew Kidman, Larry Mable and more.

Mandala makes some really unique boards. Check out this flextail quad fish. Another from the surfermag.com forum.

For surfing after rains…

Velzy Shaping

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

Video of Dale Velzy shaping a fun one. Post goes well with a recent post by Alma Pura.

Locals Only

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

Ben Stiller, Donnovan, AI, TAJ. Horrible surfer acting. Worse quality video. Very fun.

Filmed by the Malloy brothers, this spot may have started something bigger. According reuters.com (via surfermag.com) Stiller is teaming with the Malloy brothers on a feature length comedy titled “Big Wave”.

sannyasi’s t’s

Monday, April 24th, 2006

Sannyasi has their fair traded organic cotton t’s for sale. Translate the pounds to dlls and they get to be expensive though. Why does all the stuff I like cost so freaking much?

Paipo Boards

Monday, April 24th, 2006

I’ve never heard of a Paipo board untill today. Apparently a Hawaiian word, Paipo (pipe-oh) is defined as “a short or small board” and is also known as a kioe, a body board, or a belly board. Whatever you call them, there are some great boards at My Paipo Boards, the Paipo Catalogue and Fiberglass on Foam.

Some favorites:

northern light surf wax

Friday, April 21st, 2006

This wax is 100% free of petroleum products, as it consists of only 3 ingredeints: New Zealand Beeswax, New Zealand Pine Resin and Fijian Coconut Oil. It’s made by olosurfer, the wildman who makes the dragon board. It looks really cool, but I don’t see any pics of the BUMPs.

Olosurfer, where are the bumps?

If anyone has waxed up with it leave a comment describing the BUMPs and stick factor. It’s 37 dollars for twelve bars (which equals out to damn expensive for the mathmaticallly challenged) and I’m not sure if that covers shipping, although it apparently can be shipped anywhere in the world. For your 37 bucks, you get the piece of mind of knowing you aren’t causing harm to anything other than bees and trees and some Fijian coconuts that were asking for it anyway, with the falling on of the heads and such.

art slob

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Give Art Slob another few months and it’ll be a full length animated feature about a strange plant. The plant gives off an aroma so powerfull, even the most talented glassers bursts into balls of color. Through their trancendance are are able to quit their jobs, eat squid and flying pigs and live happily on 6 foot glassy surf the rest of their days. They’ll still paint and pin and glass the bonzers though.
