Here is a look at the first tropical storm of the year, Alberto, which was kind enough to pop up off of our coast Saturday. Hopefully you got out there Saturday night or Sunday morning, but if not there should be something to ride the next few days. I think this storm might serve as more of an indicator of a busy storm season then a swell machine. Time will tell, but here is an excellent site to keep an eye on the tropics.

In other news, congratulations are in order for the Mckevlin's Surf Team, 1st place winner's from yesterday's team challenge. Nice work Kyle, Ellison, Evan, and Bryant.

What Size Sub Scorcher Should I Get?

Well... Matt Biolos, the shaper of ...Lost surfboards was supposed to come by the shop today to answer questions and give stuff away but he's sick. We found out late last night that he will be able to come Friday May 25th at the same time, 5pm-7pm. If you order or buy a new ...Lost board while Matt is here you will get $50 off as well as a free pair of ...Lost boardshorts. Sorry if you were planning on coming tonight, but just push it back until Friday.

Uber Black Nose Rock Mini Feeder

Lost is no stranger to combining boards to create new models the, Sub Driver, Sub Scorcher, Mini Driver, and Black Sheep are all examples. In this tradition they have created the Uber Black Nose Rock Mini Feeder which features a compilation of the best aspects from the Uber Plank, Black Sheep, Round Nose Fish, Rocket (V2), Mini Driver, and Bottom Feeder. This board is ideal for big wave groveling, and works really well in clean big powerful small mushy surf. It can be ridden as a quad, quint, thruster, or twin fin. Be sure to pick one up before the Spring Summer Fall Winter swells. It also combines traditional polyester construction with the German engineered Hydroflex construction to enhance its variability.

Brazilian Victory

Here is Gabriel Medina, this years winner of the coveted golden railroad spike from the Nike Lower's Pro. With arguably some of the best contest surfing seen, Medina took the victory against Ireland born Glenn Hall in the final heat; and while the final heat left a little to be desired, those leading up to the final are definitely worth taking a look at. You can watch the heats on demand here. Do yourself a favor and check it out, especially the semi-finals Medina vs. Buchan.
