Autumn is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, even here in Southern California. Days are shorter, the light is slowly changing, and I'm eyeing my wetsuit. Best of all there will soon be swell to go with the sunny but crisp mornings, so it's time to think about that step up, and here's a lovely option. From Ninelights and used, but could pass for brand new thanks to the fine compsand construction. Balsa and poplar vacuum bagged over a foam core- super light, springy and strong. 7'11" x 21 1/2" x 2 7/8" (I'm not sure where that thickness is though, feels thinner to me but Mr. Beck says nearly 3 so nearly 3 it is), perfect for the bigger guy or bigger day. Vented, so it can sit in the ride in summer without a care. Tri, and it comes with a set of fins and a boardbag to make it a seriously good deal. Best of all- $800 for all this handcrafted goodness. Email info @ foamandfunction.com to enquire, comment or just tell us something good.

Australia. A lot of coast and arguably the best array of surf on the planet courtesy of that. But also a lot of very odd stuff in the ocean. Like the giant Jellyfish at the top. Or the Dendrogramma below that were fished up out of deep water of Tasmania's coast. They don't fit into the scheme of any existing animal group at all. They are an entirely new branch on the tree of life as it were, and that's pretty amazing. Well done Australia.
