New from FCS is the H-3 Nexus. Similar to the H-2 fins, but with a more traditional template; the H-3's are an upright pivot fin but with a long stiff base for drive and a tip made of FCS's new Tricoil technology for a snappy flex to create speed out of turns. Next time you are thinking of giving your board an upgrade, check them out.

Surfer's Healing

Surfer's Healing was earlier today and once again was a huge success. Possibly the best event on Folly, Surfer's Healing travels around the country helping kids with Autism catch a few waves. The waves weren't awesome, but the kids didn't care. They had a blast.

Master of Mayhem...

Yesterday I witnessed Matt Biolos (that's me in the red) lay down the planer and blow the doors off the competition in the Sacred Craft shape-off honoring Simon Anderson. Hungover and sweating through his "Tear Down Your Idols" t-shirt, he hushed the whispers of "he's not going to win without his computer" and other snide remarks.

Congratulations to Matt on a job well done. Maybe he'll be heading over to Folly Beach to celebrate??

Demo Deals

Yesterday was our annual demo, and with 30 boards definitely our biggest. The surf wasn't great, but it was clean so everybody got some waves. I want to thank all the board companies for really going above and beyond and hooking us up with so many good boards, not to mention Grumpy, Dan, and the Mckevlin's team for helping out.

Because we had so many demo boards, we now have a lot of "used" boards. That means we have boards that have been ridden once and discounted upwards of $200. Seriously, check them out before they're gone.

Foam is for Suckers...

No matter your opinion of the recent Alaia craze, one thing remains constant. Your curiosity. Well, good news. Since Bing is a distributor of Wegener Surfboards we have a 6'8" Alaia straight out of Tom's Creation Plantation so you can finally give one a try at Saturday's demo. When I first saw this thing I thought "yeah right." It weighs nothing and feels like it will break in half plus it is really narrow. I'll try it tomorrow and get back to you...

This is the pier on the North side around 2:00pm Saturday. When I was able to get out after work the wind was on it, but still fun. Hope you guys made it out.

Test Drive

We just got a set of the new Future Elevon. It is a quad set, but doesn't come with rears so you have to use your own. I had a chance to try these out yesterday, and even though the waves weren't great and the jelly fish were way worst they do work. While it was hard to get the tail to release, they did provide much more speed off the bottom then I expected which made the mushy waves more fun then usual. We have a test drive set so come try them out.

Come On 91L

With the NHC giving this an 80% chance of development and spaghetti models indicating it heading right in our direction, 91L may be the first storm swell of the season.
