Waves are looking really fun this morning, about head high and NW winds, so the further north you go the more favorable the offshore wind.
The winds will likely turn N/NE later and blow it out, so get on it early if you can. We should have waves up to this weekend though, there is currently a Coastal Low sitting almost due East of Florida and it is forcast to move NW up towards NC/SC basically crossing right through our swell window with favorable winds for NE swell development.
Get on it, summer is here. It’s gonna be flat again soon.
Right before liftoff, but a good clean shot of a Bamboo Rocketfish in action -
Waves are fun out there today. Looks like we should have ridable surf into the weekend. Get on it, this IS Florida after all…
Check your favorite forcast models. Looks like we should start seeing some swell on Saturday. Nothing impressive, but ridable.
Stop by the shop and say hi!
It’s always good to hear back from customers on their experiences after having a board for a while.
Here’s some stoke from a guy who got a Bamboo Rocketfish and posted his feedback on 2ndLight.com:
“In January, I bought my first Tom Neilson board, a 5 fin bamboo veneer Rocket (6’2″x20″x2.5″). It’s one of the best all-around boards I’ve surfed. The board is super responsive, and it projects well through the turns. It quickly generates and maintains momentum, even in mediocre conditions and through flat sections (many boards claim to do this but fall short). At the same time, the board provides excellent control in solid conditions. I use quad set up to about chest-high and use 3 fins in better conditions. As an average surfer, 6’2″ 185, the dims are perfect for me. Tom has created an amazingly balanced board, and I can’t thank him enough for his work.”
Here’s one for the big boys or those of you who typically ride longboards and want to shorten things up a bit. This board will still get you into plenty of waves and not leave you wanting a longboard in summer surf.
Here’s a new addition to the Neilson line-up, it’s a 5’7″ diamond tail with a fuller overall outline to help out when you still want to schralp but the waves aren’t co-operating…
