It cracks me up that Wavestorms have become cool.

Clearly you have not seen my........ Wavestorm, aka, "The Tourist Tomahawk"....:)

So much fun in all conditions.  I've been running it with the stock side bites fins in as a 2+1.  Single fin is a lot more fun and louse.  With the aid of the traction pads I can now pull off, smacking the lip and redirecting the board back down the face and down the line.  Before it would stall at the top and the wave would pass me by.

Don't get me wrong, I love wavestorms. Any time I travel light to somewhere with surf I buy one to surf, and then give it to groms on the beach when I leave. They rip, and you have to do J.O.B. level things to them to break them. I usually surf them stock, but I've used the Perfect Storm fin before. I liked it, but I like the stock setup almost as well. I've never tried traction pads, I just wax the heck out of them and stick them in the sun--same thing I do to traction pads and boogie boards. The wax more or less disappears but stays sticky for a long, long time.

Hey Newbs...like what you did to that Wavestorm.

Stoneaxe...You nailed it!

  "I'm in the I just don't give a shit anymore crowd. I never have anyone say anything to me...some stink eye occasionally but that's it. I'm friendly to a fault when I paddle out and I don't hog waves. I almost always stand...its why I'm out there. Only time I call out sets is when I see one outside that proners don't and I happen to be near someone that has been friendly...then I'll start paddling say something. Usually my paddling for the horizon is enough. Especially if they've already seen me paddle out and get a big one. I don't hang in crowds often but when I do I could care less what any of them are thinking. I know I'm thoughtful, careful, capable, and have every right to be there. If they think otherwise I just don't care."

I guess that's what I was trying to say when I wrote,"It is what it is."

Just a heads up. If it gets really big, don’t forget inside Morro Bay harbor. It can be really fun.

  I could write a book on these last three weeks sup surfing in crowded prone surfing spots where I live.

   I much prefer sup surfing in open beach break areas with plenty of room and waves.  I will always pick a beach break wave of less quality as my first option.  Always!  When the beach breaks get large and closed out I move to the crowded prone surfing spots out of necessity.  In years past I would just ride my bike for a work out or sup surf large closed out waves or spend the whole day traveling for surf.  This winter I've been sup surfing at all the popular surf spots where I live.  Here are my findings if anyone is interested.

 

This. My "home break" here in San Diego is Gator Beach, Coronado - just South of Shipwreck's.  It is a dumpy, powerful beach break which closes out quickly, but there are some shoulders to be had. Lots of fun at 1' - 4', unbroken wave rides are short and fast. No crowds and I can paddle South on the Strand for a 1+ miles - totally alone! 

Zoners, PM me if interested in a meetup session.
