1. The Electric Acid Surfboard Test with Mason and Coco Ho

Official Review
Richard de Ruijter: This was awesome. I wonder how EAST can be topped next year. Thank you Stab, Coco & Mason and all the shapers involved for a great series!

2. Vans Stab High Costa Rica presented by Monster Energy

Official Review
Brandle Dougans: This was epic. I didn’t blink, and I don’t even like airs.

3. Andy Irons and the Radicals

Official Review
RFS: Absolute GOLD!! Bravo Stab

4. Vans Stab High Non-Chlorine presented by Monster Energy

Official Review
Jul K: Matt is just on another level. So gnarly what he pulls off. He is comfortable where the others chicken out.

5. Stab In The Dark with Taj Burrow

Official Review
Kama’aina: I have to say that I’m sorry that I was so negative going into this. Knowing that these boards were not shaped with Taj’s dims or needed volume had me so bummed on the prospect of what this process would be like and what kind of insight I could glean from it. But these first two episodes have been freaking awesome to watch. I don’t care about any of what I thought I did prior. I just want to see and hear more from Taj. What he is feeling and expressing about the boards so far has me thinking about my quiver and my current dimensions in a new way. Super stoked and dreaming up my summer quiver now. The pay wall is more than worth it. Keep up the good work. Mahalo!!!

6. Stab Highway presented by Monster Energy

Official Review
drewcantreid: Fuck, that was so good. Grinning like a teenage boy who’d wandered to the naughty section of the news-agency the whole way through. Bring on the next ep

7. Everything & All: The Peter Mel Story

Official Review
Jason: that was all time. huge kudos to Pete for the honesty & inspiration, and to the team for putting together such an epic 30min cut. Could watch it again tomorrow.

8. Surf100 Mexico

Official Review
George Camp: THE way forward!!! Such a good format and commentary! Keep it up boys ( and girls)

9. Joyride Series

Official Review
A Dude: Came here to say you seem… happier? Have no idea why that thought crossed my mind, but it did. So, I’m sharing it. Also, was really impressed with the carving 360 and the lil alley oop. Keep up the good content, and surfing.

10. Stab Fried With Dane Reynolds

Official Review
Fuggen_waffle: Huge fan of Dane and his surfing and can totally relate to being disinterested in alternative craft, long may he reign!
