Hope everyone had a good Christmas and got some of the multitude of waves we’ve had recently. It’s been a pretty good start to winter, hopefully it keeps up through the New Year.
In honor of solid swells, here’s a 6’2 Round Pin that will keep you charging in solid winter swells –
6'2" x 18 1/2 x 2 3/16 Round Pin
Here’s an unorthodox quad setup for the Floatey Fish that works really well and is really drivey yet loose –
FCS G-CRV fins in the front (unfortunately these are discontinued, but can be found pretty easily used) and FCS GX (longboard side-bites) in the rear. This board has the FCS Fusion boxes which work well with EPS boards. The old style FCS were pretty much unusable in EPS without a lot of hassle, so it’s nice to have the option to put FCS in EPS boards.
It looks pretty crazy but the curved fins have a large base which provides a lot of drive and they also have a lot of cant which helps lift the tail and give the board a loose feel. The GX basically are back there to keep it from sliding out, but are easily over-powered for fun tail-release moves in small waves.
That’s the beauty of removable fins, you can swap them out and try all kinds of crazy different setups until you find something that’s right for you.

We’ve got a new shipment of Neilson shop T’s in stock. These make great stocking stuffers.
We’ve got black, blue and green in the front logo/rocket back shirt:
We’ve also got purple and light blue in the old school “Creative Visions” mandala logo.
6’0″ x 21 x 2 1/2 Flying Floatey Fish with the bamboo deck and carbon rails. These things are super light and really durable and ride insane. This one is in the shop for sale for $550. Come buy and pick it up for Christmas :D
Swell is here, strong NW winds, around chest high. 20 mile buoy is showing 6′ @ 15 seconds. Solid!
It’s chilly out there though so stop by the shop and check out the deals we have on Rip Curl wetsuits.
Looks like we should have waves at least through the weekend and possibly into next week with offshore winds.
Get on it!
