For those who aren’t across the concept yet, in short: We want to answer the question of whether it’s possible to call a surfboard, or a shaper, the best in the world? There’s no way to answer any of these questions objectively. But, we can get damn close. How? Well, we’re currently in some ambiguous location with a very good surfer and very, very good waves. We’ve commissioned some of the world’s best shapers to deliver their top line, high performance boards (sans any recognisable logos) for our subject to test-drive. And that’s all we’ll say. To get ready for the newest chapter of SITD, here’s Dane Reynolds’ score sheet scribblings from the 2016 edition. Stay tuned…
