wow he brought in some average surfers
its more realistic for most customers
but, will they buy boards based on how well the average guy rides one?

No, they won't.

And they will also criticize pro level guys by saying "they could ride anything."

Wow! That first wave that Noel took in the beginning was surprisingly good size. Like HH.

Maybe it was because those guys were FOTP (Fresh Off The Plane) but everyone looks super squirrely on those boards? Did anyone else notice that?

Also, in the beginning i thought that doctor was a mannequin! haha. He had a lot of skin colored sunscreen on his face!

Looks like a super fun place! Cant wait to check it out! Smiles for miles on those old guys! shaka

I can almost guarantee he has some huge framed picture of himself at Cloudbreak wearing a similar get-up in barrel stance, but way out in front of the actual barrel.

Jesus what a waste of time.

Flip flop reviews? I think this one wins the kook-edit of the year.

Reminds me of that kid who kept reviewing all those Tomos on YouTube

It was a little bit awkward to watch, the old boys are cool, BUT the doc guy was incredibly creepy.

LMFAO, I also had the internal voice in my head, shouting 'It moves' !

I'm trying not to be a typical internet meany... as I don't want to see how I look on camera, but how on earth would that guy know what a magic board feels like?

only a silly person would bet against you on that
I would hate to see vid of myself(and yet secretly hope it would look better than that)
But like Racer said, smiles for miles and that's what it all about

Videos like this remind me why I never want to see myself surf on video. I'm convinced I'm good in my mind. I must be after 30 plus years of surfing. But seeing that I suck on video and look like every other clown would make me want to sell it all, move inland, and start playing tennis.

I remember a long time ago being super disappointed. Not sure if I got better or just faced reality but I've seen myself in my later years and it's about what I'd expect based on feel.

Yeah I know those guys were having fun. The waves look like a blast but it didn't really make me want to try those boards lol.

that was pretty interesting to see average guys on these boards. Agree with Muscles- I shudder to imagine how bad I would look on video. I think Kevin, the tall guy in red, on the yellow Shadow is my best case in a few years. Like Deforest has said about his Soloshot, I'm sure watching video of yourself can really help improve your surfing. Not to go off on a tangent, but I'm curious to try the new Surfline "session" cam feature
Anyway, I'd been eyeing the AstroPop before, but it looks fun under Noel's feet.

I briefly thought about one, but my surfing ego is far too fragile, and decided to surf in ignorance.

LOL. Those would be uh... "frowned upon" at the spots I surf. Wouldn't last one session without being destroyed or stolen. I've messed around with a GoPro in the water, but the POV videos are awful unless you're in a barrel.

I was there Saturday afternoon (I think when they filmed this) and Noel was ripping. It was my first time back in ~9 months after tearing my ACL, getting it reconstructed and going through the rehab process, and I had a BLAST, drove all the way home thinking "man I was ripping!" Came home and checked Surfline rewind to find I was pretty much pumping and laying down lazy turns roflmao but who cares smile Got to ride my Stamps Flare that I ordered and got in late 2018 (!!!) for the first time and was on cloud 9. Stocked!

rad. I'm looking for an opportunity to get there (work can take me there at times) to give it a go. Would love to surf that wave.

Cheers to getting back in the water.

The Choloshot has helped me a lot. Its great to capture moments of surfing before getting any more older than we all already are.. and its fun too see how different boards look when surfing them. I think its a great tool for surfing. "Time and tide wait for no man." - Chaucer

But I do remember the first time I saw myself on video.... it was like looking in the mirror and seeing a donkey instead of a handsome stud like I thought i was! hahaha.

I prefer seeing it. It tells you when you're not squaring up enough or miss timing a move etc.

Q: What’s worse than slow motion surf videos?

A: 19 minute surf videos where the first 7 minutes is footage of bag packing and airport check-ins.

Harsh tokes. I was thinking you guys are mean but I can’t say sh*t. I say way harsher things to my dawn patrol friends. Saw a buddy get caught behind on a nugget and I just shook my head and told him why even bother standing up. Haha

Yeah that guy Noel rips so its hard for me to tell if a board model is elevating his surfing. The regular dudes look like they were having a blast. Good for them. I always wonder if I would have fun in a wave pool. Some of my friends who rip told me Kelly’s pool was hard to surf. BSR looks really fun. I’d still rather go to Fiji for a surf trip or get Bowls firing but if a wave pool gets built here I’d go.

My friends are harsh too. If I kook it or barrel dodge they’ll find it on the rewind cam and I’ll see on a group email.

^ yep. Just thinking about how the usual crew would treat these guys at the local.

I’d like to believe I surf better than the Dr. I’ll admit the footage I’ve seen of myself is limited and photos don’t tell the whole story, but I also know what it feels like to butcher a wave backside and that’s the sensation I got watching each of the Dr’s waves.

Most of the guys in the video seem like adult learners (?)

The boards seem beyond their ability level.

The thing that stood out to me was the lack of flow. Very jerky and all fins no rail.

You can feel it when you’re connected with the wave and when you’re fighting it. Looked like they were fighting it.

Maybe it would have been better to get some Californians out there, not just Inertia readers from Texas.

THat's pretty much what my emoji meant after my post. I feel bad cause they obviously had fun and I'm not usually one to criticism like that but this is a surfboard review show. To me it didn't do much to the review of the boards. One guy was really good but it looks like he had the "there's a camera on me so I'm surfing to hard" deal going on.

My biggest take away was how much Rail Line can benefit smoothness. Something I notice about people (and myself) on stubby boards. Obviously noel has no problem but it made everyone else twitchy.

The guy on that long Pyzel was smoother

It doesn't help that we have been watching the best of the best there as well.
I saw some clips of local Texas people and they looked pretty good on it (pretty sure I saw Hildo!)


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

I was also wondering if the jerkyness had to do with riding Noel's boards, he rides such tiny foiled out boards. I know when I ride a board from when I was less "hefty" it feels overly sensitive for my new weight. Either way, props to those guys for putting themselves out there, I certainly wouldn't want my wiggles on Noel's show.

Older guy on the Pyzel surfed pretty well and the one other guy also. Wave looks fun and it's cool to see guys doing turns on the wave rather than just pump, pump boosting like all the other footage out there.

I wonder if he's actually a doctor or actually a chiropractor?

Better to learn to surf before “trying moves.”

I see people going for airs and they can’t even do a bottom turn.

I still don’t feel like we’re in the wrong. My local has some rippers but it’s not like it’s hard to get to a level that you understand the pace of the wave. Average day and I see much better surfers out and about as far as the eye can see.

Those guys were adult learners. The tip-off was at the beginning when they were talking flip flops and backpack reviews.

One of these guys at my local would get one set wave and then be rendered to scraps there after.

The only thing I can think of is that he's a cold water transplant and is/was accustomed to wearing them, but it seemed like he and the other "locals" had been surfing there for over a year and a half, so it really doesn't make that much sense to me.

I remember being out at Zippers in Cabo circa 1992 and Jason (Ratboy) Collins was wearing booties. While taking a break from a long session I was talking to Mike Balzer who was shooting Jason and who I knew from living in the South Bay. I was asking who he (Jason) was, since he was the first person I'd seen in person sticking the majority of airs he attempted and why on earth he was wearing booties in 78° water. Balzer said Jason had always worn them and felt "off" not wearing them.

I'm sure there is a great divide between Doc Andy and Jason's board "feel".

I think it's a sun/skin cancer thing. Every time I've been to BSR and seen him he is covered head to toe with either clothing (booties, boardshorts, rashguard) or sunscreen.

That's pretty rad that he invited all those guys (I'm assuming they are Waco locals) to try boards and test them out.

I can almost guarantee he has some huge framed picture of himself at Cloudbreak wearing a similar get-up in barrel stance, but way out in front of the actual barrel.


oh...ive got one of those....full power bottom turn body motions....bottom turning nowhere near anywhere you'd want to be

MR cali twin looked the best by my armchair critic standards. CI Happy looked too slow, while that twinnie was just flying. Astro pop and the no brainer also needs recognition for looking good.
