Here's a gimmick for you...

I guess now Tom can finally buy that creation mansion he wanted and get off of that crap plantation.

Check Out the New Tail

This is a new model from Lost called the Flashback fish. A board reminiscent of times when everything looked like a butt. I guess I'm not old enough to remember such a time, but who am I to argue? This particular one is a custom order. We don't have any stock ones yet, but depending on the feedback from the few customs we've gotten maybe we will. I think this tail is also featured on a revamped version of the Uber Plank.

10 Time World Champ

Winning his heat today against Adriano de Souza in the Rip Curl Search 2010 Puerto Rico contest marked Kelly Slater's 10th world title. After the first two waves of the heat which scored him a 9.83 and a 9.00, Slater surfed another six waves giving Jordy Smith a high five while pulling off of the last one. And people say he's from Florida.

Rest In Peace Andy Irons

A champion has passed away today. Just at the beginning of his long awaited comeback, Andy was cut down by what is being reported as Dengue fever.

Andy Irons brought a punk rock attitude to surfing and was one of the few who could find the chink in Kelly Slater's armor. He had a bulldog style and was absolutely fearless in waves of consequence. He is, and will be, regarded as one of the best ever to put a surfboard under his feet. Our condolences go out to the entire Irons clan.
