    Rob Case Paddling Videos/Paddling Technique In General

    it's a good tip, i'll tell you this though, higher volume boards might make paddling easier, but it puts more stress on your shoulders, the more emerged you are in the water, the more similar paddling is to the crawl stroke utilizing your lats more than your delts

    Superbrand Fling

    that's how i feel about these type of shapes, they work good in the same volume range as shortboards, maybe 1,5 liters up but that's it, otherwise they get tracky and hung up a lot

    Recommend A Step Up/Good Wave Board

    Front foot traction convert – Will I be banned from the erBB?

    i'd get one if i was always surfing in a suit with no boots, I like the grip of soft winter wax with boots, and in the tropics I don't like the rash I get while trunking it. might get it for my boards stashed in Portugal
