Play

Surf Splendor Ben Aipas Sting 600x600In this episode of Surf Splendor, we dissect the Sting surfboard and its design revolution during the mid 70s. Featuring interviews with Ben Aipa, Matt Calvani, Davey Smith, Skye Richard, and Roger Hinds, this episode was recorded at The Boardroom Show during the Icons of Foam Tribute to Ben Aipa where six shaping contestants were tasked with replicating a classic Aipa Sting.

The original 1974 Aipa Sting, shaped for Buttons, was on hand for contestants to asses prior to their allotted 90 minutes in the shaping bay.

Kook

David’s Kook: Pat Parnell for his overuse of the phrase, “Sends it to the top” when commentating waves. I randomly selected a heat (Round 1, Heat 4), and this is what I found.

Go ahead, go to the Heat Analyzer and watch any heat that Pat is commentating. Sorry, Pat, but it’s annoying!
