Bamboo Demo Party All Weekend

Lots of new toys landed in town today. Coastal Urge has the 8'4 bamboo Hokua and Surf House has the PSH bamboo Rippers in stock. All these bamboo boards are light and ready to blow minds. We could use some bigger surf, but we'll be out at sunrise anyway. The North End of the CB is the place to be. See you there.

Oak Island Went Off Today

Oak Island doesn't disappoint. The most steady SW wind around can be found there. Lots of kiters and windsurfers getting some. The first photo features the kites of the three Pleasure Island amigos who invaded Oak Island today.

Sweet Video

The way this 195 lb Aussie rips on the Naish 8'4 is just amazing. Hunter, if yours ever comes in, there may be a line waiting on the beach to try it!

Worn out

Top 2 photos: Dwight on a kite. I still remember how. It was fun. I'm using Jacky's 9m and her board.

Now I want one of these

How many toys can I fit in my garage. Windsurfing a race board adds a new dimension of fun. This is the Naish Glide 14 footer
