Watch: "Foamalicious" A Chaotic Softboard Takeover At The Texas Pool
Starring Chippa Wilson, Harry Bryant, Dion, Hector and the foam freak, Blair Conklin.
The lines between firm and soft are blurring.
With the foam market blossoming, the variety and performance standards available right now is astounding. From oversize logs for learners and fins-free enthusiasts, right down to fine tuned thrusters that are easily mistaken for the real deal. Most now come with sockets for your favourite fin systems too.
So in the search for a new summer companion, who do you go with? Well, which brand do you think you’d wear best?
Are you into the 80’s nostalgia of the Catch cult? You dig the Drag scene with Chip, Dion and Creed’s McDraggit? Or you chasing the blunt superior response of Modom’s Mondo.
Please allow Stab and SurfStitch to provide a path to stroll in making your soft decision.
We shipped a few board bags worth of fresh foam stock over to Texas for test riding on the eve of Stab High. What initially was planned to be a softboard competition ended up being a free for all expression session in the BSR Cable Park's finest creation.
Dive in above for the chaos that ensued. Hazz took to his knees and belly, Mr Agius hooked in for the tube, Chip got fancy with his footwork and Blair Conklin just went huge. Poor Hector Santamaria, he only jagged a couple before his face met with the concrete floor, evaporating his ‘chi’ in one hot neck-realigning moment.
