    Waves this week. Come grab a board.

    Wow! Those boards are beautiful. I'm really digging the pastel strips. Wish I was close enough to stop by.

    Wow, the Mahady boards look beautiful and I am very interested in buying one or getting a custom shape. If I have enough cash I will definitely be giving you an email after I graduate (May 20th)

    I HIGHLY recommend Tom Mahady for a longboard. He has a library of vintage templates and some incredible modern designs of his own. Can't say enough good things about him and his work.

    Careful how you generalize. Although I can see why you would associate Greenlight with the hobbyist, considering that is who he markets his materials to, Mahady Surfboards are sold there and you are smoking crack if you think those are "a bit on the hobbyist side". Maybe you saw another board there that was hobbyist, but lets be sure not to put that label on Tom.

    I'm in FLA, so stopping by is not easy. And now I'm going to throw my soul surfer on the table.....I just started surfing a year ago March (or at least started trying to surf ) What is a step deck about?

    My goals are all about long boarding.....I want to hang five, hang ten, hang heels, stand on my head, learn to flip my board and just in general do awesome things What do you recommend as the best style for these goals? I have a nose rider now......but recently I was told by a long term surfer that my board is also a "nose diver".....and all this time I thought it was just me

    I would speak to Derf at Island Style in Sea Bright and check out Toms stuff if you want one shaped. Tom probably has more experience shaping than any of these guys commenting on here. If not, talk to Ron at Spellbinders in Allenhurst. Good luck and hang ten!!

  9. Step decks are used to make the board flex when on the nose, thus straightening out the rocker in the board giving you more speed and a little more performance feel in the nose. The type of log you get is really dependent on the way you want to surf and the style of the board. There are some noseriders like a David Nuuhiwa that has little nose rocker and a large amount of tail rocker. Seeing as you are getting a couple hundred dollar security deposit back I would recommend stopping into Beach House or Heritage and taking a look at some of their logs. Bing makes a couple of user friendly noseriders that will do everything you described above. Don't fall into the whole east coast/west coast crap a board is a board, some are for different waves/conditions, but ideally waves on both coasts are the same.

    if your after a used log, keep an eye on craigslist. if you want something new, have the loot to spend top dollar, and dont want to bother with research etc, check out your local go to shops. but i think you should 100% go to greenlight to at least look and talk to the guys there (you did say you were from monmouth county). they have some good logs on the racks. and who knows after talking to them you may find yourself getting a custom log for cheaper then a new board in a shop.
