    TFAD said it best,
    "Ian Cairns is responsible for the Costco Wavestorm???
    That is disturbing.
    This was truly the summer of the Wavestorm.
    Those things are such pieces of crap. Hideous rocker, rails and weird wonky fins. Those boards completely robbing people of the experience of the glide.
    I don't get why they are designed so poorly.
    Ironic surfing by good surfers on Costco Wavestorms, I can't get behind it.
    I feel bad for the manufacturers of decent soft boards that kids can actually develop skills on.
    I learned to surf on a Mason & Smith single fin soft board when I was a little kid. When I finally became brave enough to transfer over to a real foam and fiberglass board and rode an actual green water wave and went 1,000 miles per hour it blew my mind.
    Oh well, southern California summer ends on Sept 2, let the real summer begin Sept 3rd."

    "I'm not against soft boards.
    I'm against this bizarre yuppie culture of validating buying surf gear at Costco.
    I have friends who work for Costco and they are a good employer, I got nothing against Costco in general.
    But some things just aren't right.
    There are lots of good softboards out there if you need one.
    Put your kids on an INT if you want to teach them to surf.
    I am going on the record as being against Wavestorms and buying surfboards at Costco.
    Go ahead and justify your purchase of the Wavestorm all you want, it's a kook move in my opinion.
    A grown adult who knows how to surf in the middle of the lineup trying to sesh seriously on a Wavestorm is a kook move in my opinion.
    I resist the attempt at making buying and surfing Wavestorms a new political correctness.
    No, no, no. Don't do it.
    Somebody has to be the bad guy here and I'm fine with it being me.

    Funny most of the boards being ridden by the Jaws paddle in crew are called the Sushi as well. But obviously made of fiberglass and foam. By Sean Ordonez Shapes.

    I have one of his regular (non jaws gun) shortboards called the Slushi. Love it.

    Anyhow, thats my way of relating those darn costco boards to actual surfing.

    3 questions. What's the deal with the squared off nose and tail(s)? how many fins? Do they make any for males?

    Doesn't Matt Kechele have a Sashimi model? I bet it surfs better than the Sushi above. At least in salt water.

    Bro these are for canines. The kind that surf. Like the ones sandblasters and I have in our avatars. These boards are real hard to shred on when you're over 90-110lbs. The rails big down big time.

    Male or female canines?

    All males bro. Female dogs are on SUPs where they belong.
