    Just whatever you do don't get a 4by4 with a modified suspension if you want it to last. Lifts -suspension or body- put a strain on the whole system. U-joints are over worked, blocks and shackles are...

    It seems to complicated with pieces and parts for me to loose. Just like removable fins. Screws and mcjiggers to get rusted and salt crusted together. And too part specific? Do they only work on this...

    Hey BassMon, don't worry -that little whammy won't affect your ripping even one little iota. In fact, it will ride even better. Please don't be OCD, just reshape the tip down beyond the shatter and...

    Surfers trying to sell themselves maybe? Trying to look different but ending up looking the same? Just like tattoos today I reckon. Or riding a Harley -or owning anything that says HD. Or starting a...

    Those sticks are pretty sweet actually, made in Ventura, CA if I'm not mistaken. Very clean shapes mostly geared to slightly older dudes and not so much for 14 yr. olds. The ones that I have seen are...

    Maybe a 6'2" fish, 16" x 20.7" x 16.5" x 2.7" (or more) w/ an 11" tail block ? Those dimensions net almost 40 liters and as long as it doesn't have to much rocker (sub 4" at the nose tip and sub 1.6"...

    The only folks that will be bummed are shapers or friends of shapers. The GSI boards are fine and in the end it only matters to the surfer if it fits what they are looking to get from a board. They...
