Glass Sampling At Lowers With The Gudauskas Bros, Eithan Osborne And Yadin Nichol
Now for something a little less life threatening!
Please allow Dane, Tanner, Eithan and Yadin to transport you away from the death-defying North Shore content ripping across the airwaves right now.
Appreciation aside, being completely honest with ourselves, we’re not really relating to the idea of knifing second reef slammers.
Most of us mere mortals are surfing real world conditions, soft sand bottom peaks, sometimes the odd reef or point. We fantasise about craft with a little more in the girth department, to combat the flat sections, to increase wave count and to forgive a blown line caused by a bystander – or our own damn fault.
Recently the Channel Islands contingent took a few everyday shapes into the Lowers lineup to flex their muscles. Dane, Tanner and Yadin got at on Rocket Wides, while golden boy (literally) Eithan Osborne threw around his prized Neck Beard II.
Hit play above for a CI demonstration and reminder that Lowers is the world’s best wheels-free skatepark.
Now, let’s talk dims!
Dane Gudauskas is on the Rocket Wide: 5’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 7/16”
Eithan Osborne is on the Neck Beard 2: 5/4” x 19” x 2 3/16″
Yadin Nicol is on the Rocket Wide: 5’6” x 19” x 2 5/16”
