How to Prepare for a Big Swell - Matt Rott

Posted by DAVID KELLY

How to Prepare for a Big Swell Matt Rott at Waimea By now you might have heard that the Eddie is on yellow alert, and that’s because the biggest swell in the past year is currently bearing down on Hawaii. Whether or not the Eddie ends up running, Monday and Tuesday promise to be exciting days in the water, with a 16 foot at 18 seconds swell filling in Monday night and peaking early Tuesday morning. Waimea should be 18- to 20-foot+, and the outer reefs even bigger—and as of now we have stellar ESE (offshore) winds forecasted for the...

Yoga for Surfers: Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide - Legged Forward Bend)

Posted by DAVID KELLY

While we like to call ourselves surfers, the reality is that we spend the majority of our time paddling, not riding waves. And paddling board is hard work. Particularly with shortboards—but even on longboards as well—we spend hours flexing our lower backs and upper legs in order to support a more efficient streamline through the water so that we can paddle faster and catch more waves. All of this flexing can lead to strained, tight muscles in our upper legs and lower backs—basically our entire core. And of course, our core is the foundation of movement and posture in the...

The H4 Fin Set: FCS Builds the Future

Posted by DAVID KELLY

The surf media has written thousands of pages on the various attributes of surfboard design, but much less attention has been given to the part of the surfboard that actually steers it. Fins are an essential part of what makes surfboards work, but we have only recently begun to explore their potential, in terms of design, materials, and other features. For the most part, the fins on today’s surfboards are pretty much exactly the same as the fins that were on boards 30 years ago—whether you are riding single-fin longboards, retro twin fins, thrusters, or quads. That’s all about to...

Who is Daniel “Tomo” Thompson?

Posted by DAVID KELLY

Daniel “Tomo” Thompson’s Futuristic Quiver   Daniel “Tomo” Thompson has been one of the world’s best surfer/shapers for over a decade. Growing up near Byron Bay, Australia, with a shaper for a father, he has known George Greenough since before he could talk and started surfing the right-hand points of Lennox Head and Broken Head before he could walk. The influence of this childhood had a massive impact on Tomo, who quickly became a pro-level surfer, a skilled shaper, and an open-minded advocate of speed and hydrodynamics. After revolutionizing the fish design in the Australian points—both as a surfer and...

Donald Takayama - Halo Fin Advantage

Posted by DAVID KELLY

The Halo Advantage             Donald Takayama in Hawaiian South Shore signing a surfboard May 11th, 2011.                 While Donald Takayama’s contribution to surfing and surfboard design runs the gamut from longboards to short, and even includes a storied career as a professional competitor, perhaps his most futuristic and visionary invention is the Halo Fin. Drawing on the theory behind the pivot fin, Takayama sought to create a fin system that allowed larger wave riding vehicles such as longboards, SUPs, and shorter hybrids to turn with ease and efficiency.   When he finally nailed...
