board test | bing bn lightweight 9'4"

Love this board. Not at first but by the 5th session it felt good! It's a great balance of a traditional log and modern noserider. It definitely has a sweet spot that allows fun trimming through faster sections. 

9'4" - 23 - 3, nose 18.5, tail 16.25

Board Review - fcd huevo ranchero

I recently picked up fcd's huevo ranchero board and have been enjoying it ever since. A versatile board with the option of riding as a standard tri-fin, 2+1, or single fin. I would definitely recommend this board to those who are looking to consolidate a few boards down to one or simply have fun on a board that is both retro and progressive. Another plus with this board is the ability to catch waves with ease...minimal rocker and good width under your chest. 

You can visit fcd surfboards for more info on the board...

Featured Artist - Ryan Lovelace

ryan is a true master at his craft. ryan takes his unique approach to shaping boards particularly designs that excel in point break surf. the boards are aesthetically beautiful and really fun to ride. his boards seem to be contagious as you'll probably notice at least 10 of them on any given session in the cove. i personally like the board, especially the way it promotes a more smooth style of surfing. his popular v bowls shape is a versatile board that is a lot of fun...during one recent evening session, i borrowed one for a few and could not stop smiling. ryan was eager to let me try it but also eager to get it back.

It's that time of year...

a special time of the year. we understand that though we may not reach the same numbers of fish as seen during the summer months, quality fish and solitude awaits us. crowds drop, access is limited, and temperatures drop to one digit. large rainbows and browns make their routine migration from large bodies of water into small holding spots upstream. with every drift we second guess our position on the river and are reminded that it may be true that 90% of the fish are holding in 5% of the water.
