30 More Miles To San Diego





Just back from San Diego and all is good. Checked out a 4'8" casper shaped by a 12 year old kid, then met the newly grounded kid at Windansea. The board is a trip, RK has amazing footage of the groms riding it and it's shorter than the 4'11" White Pony Simfish that you here see Ryan Thomas cutting back with panache. Also got word from Mackie, boards are on the plane early next week- 2 sidecuts and a flextail with more to follow. Screen grab is Mick's site with the flextail showing what kind of cuttie you can haul it through. Please note that neither of the waves being surfed are exceptionally fantastic, and figure what kind of speed these boards are generating. Had a quick bodysurf in the whomp and then we ate tacos. The good life.

Any chance for a demo flextail for those of us with gills to enjoy?

Mr. Smith,
the board will definitely do the rounds- I'll bring it down to the Swift Festivus (Sept 5) for any interested parties to have a look, and at some stage I'll bring it back and leave it for a few weeks so the San Diegans can partake- you're on the list.

Unreal. I'll be looking forward to it.
