Watch: The Season Finale of "Temple of the Lost... Stone: Trouble Shooter"
Mason and Tom Curren skimming, and Pops and the whole gang scoring on an Alan Byrne-inspired Mayhem channel-bottom tube (trouble) shooter!
Mason and the boys have saved the best episode of "Temple of the Lost... Stone" for last, this week's grand finale featuring Mason, his Pops, Tom Curren (and Burger, of course) taking spins on Curren's most recent finger-finned skimboard, as well as a sexy-as-all-hell looking Trouble Shooter.
The Trouble Shooter's a new solid wave sled from Mayhem this year, inspired by the classic channel-bottoms of the late, great Alan Byrne (somewhere there's a photo, possibly of one of the Carrol brother's Hawaii quivers, of a lineup of channel bottom Byrning Spears that always made us salivate). As Mayhem says, the Trouble Shooter's "designed to take you in and out of dream waves." Modest entry rocker, a narrow swallow that's not too extreme for proper top-to-bottom surfing, made even more maneuverable by plenty of tail rocker, with a shallow concave blending into a four-channel bottom providing drive and control, and plenty of hidden volume for chasing peaks or moving around in shifty, heavy lineups.
