How to Pull a Slob Grab w/ Dane Reynolds

I like doing fake rotations where your body doesn’t rotate, but your board does. I prefer doing Slob grabs off closeout sections—when you have a lot of speed and you can predict how the wave is going to break. 1. You need to go a little more vertically up to the lip than you would […]

How to Compliment…

A Friend Who Sucks Complimenting a friend who sucks is like complimenting an ugly date. Every date has something attractive about their appearance, and every surfer does one thing right.

How To Perfect A Backside Cutback w/ Fred Pattachia

By Fred Patacchia 1. For me, the backside cutback is one of the most difficult things to do right. Going into the turn, I try focus on positioning on my board. Specifically, I try to stay centered over the board going in, but once I begin the cutback I shift my weight a little more […]
