Here’s a bonus sized episode for you. We cover the WSL’s bid for the Maverick’s permit, the massive Puerto Escondido swell, bid a fond farewell to brother Barney, discuss opening day in Rio, take a Stab in the Dark, call out Dukes and Kooks, and learn about A Fisherman’s Son! As if that’s not enough show for you, we close the show with a conversation with Dr. Rey Banatao about Entropy’s bio-based surfboard resins. It’s a jam packed episode. Can ya dig it?

    love the show.. i know u guys are super busy but i was wondering what u thought about Tomo surfboards . in particular the vader and vanguard. i am very interested in buying one but my wife is very uninterested in the 750 price tag.. not gonna lie, after 20 years of surfing i still consider myself average. from checking his website an reading articles, it seems like the boards are more geared for advanced/pro surfers,,,,
    thank you
