this is a new EDB variant that I shaped with Sunset Cliffs in mind, particularly North Garbage. Consider the paddle out to the line up. It sure is nice to have something that glides. Once you’re out though, it’s nice to be on something other than a log to take advantage of the quality of the surf. And remember the feeling of hearing “OUTSIDE” and knowing that you have to cover some ground, FAST. I feel this is the perfect combination of traits for the Cliffs. I could envision catching anything from knee high inside sliders in the summer, to outside double overhead bombers on this thing. Can’t wait to try it out. Available soon at Bird’s.

“Surfing is like…”
“Surfing is like making love: It always feels good, no matter how many times you’ve done it.”
“Well, Stu, I’ll tell you…”
“Well, Stu, I’ll tell you: Surfing’s not a sport, it’s a way of life. It’s no hobby. It’s a way of looking at that wave and saying, ‘Hey, bud, let’s party!'”
Jeff Spicoli, Fast Times at Ridgemont High
“There can be no more…”
“There can be no more wild and exhilarating experience…it is a completely physical pleasure. One could yell with joy like a child.”
-Baron Max Von Aufess
New at Mitch’s North!
The first two HPH’s (hydrodynamic planing hull) were delivered yesterday to Mitch’s North in beautiful Solana Beach. Stop by and check them out.
“The real hook…”
“The real hook in surfing is, if that wave is good then the next wave has got to be better, and the next wave will be even better.”
“If in doubt, paddle out.”
quote of the day…
“I consider myself a nice, wimpy little Jewish boy who learned surf and who became much more of a man than if he had not.”
