That rules out most.

Agree, Burch would be awesome but would need more variety than bog standard HPSB's.

They should've had Burch do the Electric Acid one rather than Dane.

Still can, I guess.

You mean the last Fork I got from him isn’t “standard” enough?!😁

Looks awesome waxy!

I tried to get mine changed to the thruster set-up, but it was already at glassing. I'm sure I'll still like the twin/quad set-up.

What fins are you running?

Thanks JKB! Got AM2 TechFlex on the toe and EA glass on the heel and center, felt great in shoulder high today. Possibly go with all AM2 if I need more fin when it gets bigger

If Stab wants someone to be brutally honest, they'll have to use someone who's detached from the industry or someone older. A retired pro, a promising grom that fizzled out or a really good surfer who works in a different industry (I can think of one who is an architect and two who are engineers and all surf at a high WQS level).

Bobby fits that mold, that’s who I’d like to see next! He’d be brutally honest since he has no ties to the industry, other than being on CI’s team. Plus, they haven’t had a goofy footer participate yet. You listening Ashton?!?!


Bobby isn’t really right for the job.

“This one is fuckingbullshitasspussyshit”

“This one is for pansyasswannabesuckas”

“This one? Fuckit. I ain’t playing this game”

I think Bobby would be great for entertainment but not so much for board characteristics. Tons of passion tho.

I think a retired pro makes a lot of sense. Kerr has done something similar on surfline. Taj would be good. Was also thinking maybe someone like luke egan or brad gerlach (maybe too much haha) - they seem really into boards, have good technique etc.

Good calls.

Luke Egan or Shane Beschen would be great.

Shea Lopez, Damian Hobgood, Chris Gallagher, Ben Dunn (if he has his father's inclination for technical nerdery).

I think Timmy Reyes would be a good one. Local... former CT surfer. He's done some reviews on surfboards and can articulate thoughts well. Plus he charges.

Taylor Knox would be cool too.

I would pay Stab money for the pleasure of not hearing Damian Hobgood speak.
