    It's what someone was calling a traction pad a while back and it ruffled a few feathers, so I reruffled.

    ha. I had a pair of Jams in elementary school, thought I was badass. Still have a pic of my little brother wearing one of those Jams "desert" hats with the two flaps in the back and the sunglasses with the faux leather side covers...

    Oh yeah, not an actual surf product...Flames artwork/design on the surfboard. wth?

    Craigslist is full of boards with this design, I wonder why.

    Forecasting websites. (No offense SI. You are great and all but..) Way better to check it yourself and be pleasantly surprised, than to expect it and be disapointed.

    The 2- or 3-piece surfboard that costs a lot of money made by I-can't-recall....seemed like a good idea in theory for carrying boards on planes, but from what I've heard the thing just doesn't hold up over time plus you talk about flex in the water, whoa.

    from the surfresearch.com.au article:
    circa 1982
    Multi Fins (Uncredited)
    Laminated fibreglass, fixed and boxed.
    Surfing Magazine, March, 1990
    Volume 26 Number 3, Page 102.

    Included in an article titled
    Dubious Achievements :
    "Following Simon Anderson's development
    of the thruster in 1981, surfboard
    designers everywhere decided that if three's
    to be, four will score, five's no jive, six's the
    pick, seven's heaven, eight'll be great..."
    If I remember the article correctly the guy covered the bottom of his board with fins and started breaking them off from the nose down until the board began to work.

    And at the other extreme...anyone remember Cheyne Horan's love affair with single fin short boards? He probably could have surfed on a ironing board but refused to follow the crowd. He probably still uses a clay wheeled skateboard and a beaver tailed wetsuit.
