Day two began with a bang. Literally. My head and a luggage rack. And while I tried to blame it on a stuffed Bobcat who suddenly came to life and slapped me. No one bought the story. However, people will be buying a lot of other things—boards, paddles and gear. Let’s run few a few of the highlights.

Ice Mule

From a cooler bag standpoint, this is a dead on winner. Excellent price (around $100 for the perfect model). It can be a duffle and a backpack. It’s a dry bag. LOVE it.

Riviera Flex Shaft

The new bump paddle also comes in a flex shaft that seems like it’s going to be super comfortable.

Futures Manta Fin

All that is holy in surfing with all that is unholy in racing. They combined the elements of their two most successful fins and took out anything extraneous. Connor Baxter and Mo Freitas. Nuff said. It’s all that Jeramie Vaine is using these days for racing.

Virus anything

Virus is launching a number of SUP-specific and prone-specific items for 2016. For you prone paddlers and surfers, there’s a version of their board short that will blow your mind. Review to come. Side and back closing mechanisms. You can’t get pantsed. Lisa LOVES the pants. Info to come.

BIC C-Tech Wave Pro

Really good looking shapes in the new BIC surf line for 2016.

BIC C-TEC way pro 7’8″ 8’2″ and 8’10” and 9’4″ models. Great looking new shapes.

Vans Waffles

Vans provides breakfast treats, waffles on a stick with all the trimmings from almond butter and honey (me) to blue Cake icing and oreos (the 15 year old in front of me). Thank you Vans.

Surftech and Takayama

The Takayama line from Surftech is beautiful. My first longboard was a Takayama and I’m biased because he was one of my favorite all-time surfers.

Art in Surf

The graphics in the Art in Surf are just so creative and beautiful. They pop from across the show floor. Every detail down to the paddle designs make their Boards and paddles unique.

Drycase Drybuds Chill Headphones

Waterproof and really comfortable earbuds that are really ergonomically designed and easy to get in and out of your ear even with wet hands.

What You Should do Before that First Spring Paddle

Ah spring! That wonderful time of year when nature explodes after the dark, dank grey of winter and re-ignites our paddling souls!  The air temperature warms up, and we dream of barefoot paddles, board shorts and bathing suits and refreshing dips...
