How crazy would it be if Kelly's struggles the past however many years were in a great part due to his insistence on riding EPS boards in all conditions...

Don't forget you can get eps in similar density to PU. It definitely has a different memory (longer) and damping though. I like it for its longevity, but I as far as feel, I can switch back and forth no problem. I'm also doing dual blanks w pu rails. So much nicer to shape.

Agreed.

This isn't directed at Ghostshaper, but just a comment in general:

Let's not forget the dude has been nursing back and foot injuries the last couple of years.

Oh yeah, and he's 47 years old competing with 20 year olds at an elite level.

Small wave high performance surfing will be the first thing to fall off,. Sure he will have good small wave performances here and there, but not with the consistency of a Flippy, JJF, or Medina.

He's still the best when it comes to barrels though. jam_on

Better than JJF.

Yeah, I said it.

Couple updates:

Surf SPlendor:

Nathan Fletcher Michael Oblowitz. Annoying, couldn't finish it.

Chris Gally was pretty good talking about Jordy and coaching etc.

JS was cool hearing his story. Pretty depressing hearing that there aren't really too many up and coming shapers according to these guys.

Boardroom:

Just got done listening to Joe Roper. Enjoyed it but I'm a SD born and raised guy so....

It would be nice to never hear tea discussed in a surf podcast again.

Every shaper I've spoken to about this has told me the exact same thing, at least when it comes to performance boards.

Not many younger guys are interested in being shapers and many are too lazy to put in the hard work it takes to get good (not my words).

"The future is Firewire. If you want to ride good boards you guys are fucked"

Tons of new shapers, probably all doing keel fish and weird hull bottom chine rail boar bonzers.
Then again after that Asher PAcey clip last week, im glassing some marine ply to my ikea table


Rumour is that Slater has a full-size tattoo of himself over his entire body
