Was a fun late morning session with the boys.. Seppe was in town to snag a few left over waves from the NE wind push. Jesse, John H., Brandon, Pat, RuRu, Seppe and my self had a great time sharing waves with good ol' friends...
An ultra-thin shape that enables you to rip even when the swell’s barely there.
Everything about the Air Born has been designed to achieve the best performance
in any mushy waves. Its fish-style outline offers great shortboard carving.
The thin, high-apex rail lets the water flow around it, accelerating the board on the
rail. This gives you the feel of riding a steep barrel wave.
This ultra-thin profile allows the board to flex more and store all the energy ready
for release on your airs or cutbacks.
Comes in three Sizes... Two 7-10's at 31.5 and 30 wide and 7-4 x 28.5
For those looking for ultra-high performance and stability in small surf,
the Air Born 7’10’x31.5’’ has all the characteristics of the 30’’ board and more.
We traded 1/10 of an inch thickness for 1.5 inches of width, keeping almost
the same volume. This ultra-thin profile allows the board to flex more and
store all the energy ready for release on your airs or cutbacks, while providing
extra stability and control. This is the ultimate performance fish.
The Air Born 7’4’’x28.5’’ is a scaled down version
of the Air born 7’10’’x30’’ to allow lighter or
highly-skilled riders to optimize sessions where
swell isn’t very big. Everything about the Air Born

I was able to see this SUP at the expo and was very light weight and felt really thin for a SUP the flat bottom, relaxed rocker and the added FCS center fin addition was to my liking since I'm a Truster or 2+1 fin surfer. Looks like a great surf sup for our waters however i was pushing its upper limits of floatation at my weight of 190 lbs ,,,,, this board displacement is 98 liters ,,,
These races will be for kayaks, canoes and SUP's. Entry fee of $20 per event will be required of participants. Same day on-site registration begins at 8:00am. Start time is 9:00am at Bluffton Oyster Company Park.
In addition a Stand Up Paddle One Design Race will be offered for all participants starting at 1:00pm. All participants will be on the same exact board, navigating a series of turns in numbered heats. Marshgrass Adventures has ordered six identical boards for this race, so no one will have a board advantage. Entry fee will be $10 per entry. This will be a spectator event in front of the Church of the Cross, off of the public dock.
We had some fun small wind waves with the last of the long period swell that was greeted with offshore winds. The result was fun waves shared by a few friends.. Rick, Scott, Jesse, John and I traded and shared the small peaks. Always wanting the surf to be larger but being able to get out and ride, with friends is a gift..

A small glassy swell with buoy readings of 3.2 ft. at 10 seconds ..Jesse, John and I were there to greet the sunrise show as the spectacular colors were lighting up the morning.. All shots by Jesse Cadman's G12 camera..
Some fun, little, clean waves this morning. John Heidel and I surfed on the south end of the island.. Was just a pretty morning. Full moon setting in the west, Sun rising in the east. ''Sun and Moon session''... Had thigh to waist high waves for a couple hours.
Missed JC, but caught a few for him
Like these conditions...
The Starboard 8'-5'' Pocket Rocket in the Brushed Carbon construction at 30'' wide, pulled-in tail with the width more forward of center. 4.1'' thick at 130 liters. Weighs 15.8 lbs ....2+1 fin set up (quad option) 'Sea Deck ' deck pad. Has a flatter rocker than the 8-10 and 8-2 Wide Points. Its very loose on the wave but stable paddling at my weight (187 lbs) Love this board.Why...fits my style of surfing.. ''Bury the tail drive the rail ''
Fun Sunrise surf down on the south end of the Island . Winds went light allowing the NE wind blown conditions to clean up.. Jesse and I snagged a few before the winds started blowing up again.... I was riding the new 8-5 Pocket Rocket in Brushed Carbon and Jesse was on his 7-9 Stu Sharpe .. I'm just loving the 2+1 fin set up on the Starboard PR. It accelerates in the wave and off the bottom turn and its lower rocker allows speed and glide in the flat sections. The pulled in tail allows for maneuverability off the tail. '' Burry the tail, drive the rail type surfing.. '' Jesse trowing his gouging carves and a few big floaters off the rolling sections.. Fun Fun Fun...
