Put some time in the editing room.
Thanx, Zoners!

love the music and the narration. Super 50s vibe. Looks like your shoulder is doing better!

Thanx, SS! Music is right outa YT's royalty free library. 50'2 vibe is def more chill than the 2010's vibe! Shoulder? Wouldn't exactly use the word "better". "Not too bad" is more accurate.

Reminds me of why I like Wavestorms, and why I fall so much when I get one. They don't bottom turn like a hard board. Lean on the rail from the middle and nothing much happens, which leaves me hanging out in the air with no board under me.

Full circle Cookie. Your're giving back to the junior stoke generation. Good man. Spread the Aloha. I love the little straight ahead jazz piece in the middle.

Thanks Cookie for the video. Very cool. I have been thinking about getting a stable soft top that I can lend to friends and family......well and use myself perhaps. You demoed a bunch, any stand out as a reasonable board to surf? Any that you can put FCS fins in?

Thanx, Pono, TD, and FRP for scoping my vid!

I like Wavestorms. They don't bottom turn like a hard board.
I find they are one of the best soft-tops for the money though. True, they won't hold like a regular board but they ride really well.

I love the little straight ahead jazz piece in the middle.
Was quite surprised to stumble on the jam in the YT library.

You demoed a bunch, any stand out as a reasonable board to surf? Any that you can put FCS fins in?
I like the Wavestorm 8'0'' best, but no FCS there, only the stock fins which are atypical for soft-tops. IMO it's kind of redundant to put proper fiberglass fins on a board that is intended for beginners.

Thanks Cookie. I think I will go down to our local drugstore and look at their Wavestorms!

Cook, get a “Perfect Storm” fin for you wavestorms. $30 and you have an amazing single fin that makes the board 50% faster and hold really well.

We all ride them out here (designer is from Venice).

I love foamies in the summer time myself. Looking for a 7’0” on Craigslist now.
