This is a new shape from Lost called the Subdriver. I bet you can guess the two boards this one is derived from. It, and several others, are composed of Hydroflex technology.

Hydroflex is a type of epoxy construction which utilizes a unique air valve and pump to change the boards stiffness. The blank used is composed of an EPS foam with interconnected micro airchambers. Resin soaks deeper into the foam because of these micro chambers gripping the foam with "fingers" of resin which makes de-lam almost impossible. The valve on the deck of the board allows you to change air pressure in the foam and as a result the boards flex. I rode one last night, and despite crap surf, was able to get a feel for the board's potential. While I didn't change the flex pressure, what I did experience was a ridiculously light board which was extremely responsive. I let you know when I know more. Come by and check these boards out. The air pump is cool, but seriuously, these boards are ridiculously light. Put your hands on one.

It's Finaly Happening...

Short notice? Yes. Will the waves be good Saturday? Yes, good enough, so come to the contest shack at the washout between 10am-5pm with a driver's licence to try a neckbeard, or a disco, or a plank, or one of many others all for free!!!

Doesn't anyone work?

I know I've asked that before, but I still wonder.

Here are a few pictures from this morning before I came into work. It looks like some groundswell filling in, as I'm sure you've already heard. Here is a hint as to who of the four made that wave above -- none. Hey, has anyone else noticed that ever since Irene the waves either just close out or mush out? Hopefully the sandbars will shift back to spots a bit more conducive for rippable sections before this "swell" dries up.
