Signed. Squamish is a special spot, and the locals are definitely deserving of our support.

4 10 soft top, future fin quad.

Never used it, so have no clue about the way it rides.

Re: Strapless freestyle board durability

I have been giving my carbon appeltree a real hard time jumping strapless. Hard to destroy. Its popular around here with both surfers and freestylers. However, a shore break with rocks sounds pretty tricky. Nothing will withstand that, except maybe foamies, as slappysan suggested. You could consider...

Re: What size directional board?

Hi Chris, I think you have the right size board. Just give it some time. If you're thinking of buying a light wind/small wave board, then do it, and it will help. The width and volume in the back will help jibing at low speed. It won't necessarily help you at becoming better on the mitu. If you want...

Re: Too many mistakes to list

I think you're all (aprt from bigtone) a little hard on the kid. He's what...16? He finished his movie saying: know your limits, and pull your quick release". He's learned that, at least.

There were plenty mistakes to learn from, that's for sure. He's lucky to have gotten away with some scratches.

Re: Downloops on surfboard

The only way to properly learn this is to go for a long downwinder and pull 3000 downloops. Both pointing downwind while on a wave and when jibing.

Awesome feeling when the timing's right!

For all you know he's going for a kid on those rocks. Don't be so quick to judge.

Re: Forgot how to ride a twin tip

I have the same thing. Keep face planting at the weirdest moments. Partly because of these massive 50 mm fins, not used to that....

Re: Other spots in Tenerife?

If you go downwind from Cabezo (el.Medano) you end up in an extremely flat water spot, behind sea walls of some electrical company. Its not an official spot, but I've been there a couple of times, and nobody was complaining. There is some kiteboarding in Playa de las Americas, with supposedly chance...
