    GoPro's!!!!

    Lame, when on the nose of the board filming the surfer. I don't give a f0ck what you look like surfing or the stupid faces you make or your constipated looking stance when you are surfing a two foot wave. Unless you are surfing Teahupoo or Jaws it's lame. If you are filming your friends from the water, then feel free to proceed and have a blast.

    point break is great. its a classic you cant hate on it haha and i think gopros are pretty cool ive seen sick footage from them. its all about the angle and point of view when u use them. if u strap it to the front of the board, expect to get bad footage. but when u have it on ur head or chest on a good day with plenty of barrels you'll be pleased with the result. Also with this angle u can share what u experienced with people who cant surf and they can see what you saw, which is pretty cool i think.

    How about needle sharp noses on shortboards? I got a nice scar to prove it was lame for me. Needed those lame silicone nose condoms to keep from having a lawn dart moment...

    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...

    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:
    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.
