    ***Official 2022 Community Surf Journal***

    What a shiiity September. I surfed Sat & Sun and it was pretty uninspiring. I have the week off from work and it's been 2-3 and windy the whole time. So basically the same as everyday over the summer, just with nasty red tide. I took out the new (to me) log and even that didn't really bring...

    *** Official Fin Thread ***

    I've never ridden one but I've seen people do some pretty cool things on them. Granted, it was only in small, lined up, pointbreaks and really good surfers.

    SF beatdown

    She's a drug user (sure, likely an addict) because she uses meth. She's homeless because she doesn't have place to live. .

    Does anyone make something like this...

    Everyone makes one. You're describing what I end up riding most days. They'll work with you on the East Coast. They have multiple retailers in NJ and NY, or you can work out shipping with them. Just start by calling or emailing if you don't want to buy online. Coming from someone who has...
