This was captured early last summer during two consecutive days of riding the No. 5 prototype we had shaped along the way to making what is now called the CI Mid. Shaped by @mike_andrews3 , I really liked how zippy and squirty this one was, but you can see little subtle moments in the softer stuff where the tail rocker felt a hair too low during cutbacks. This is nerd level stuff, I’m guessing most people wouldn’t notice what I was feeling, but still, we were trying to make something as good as possible so I brought it back to the bay, we measured all aspects of it and decided to add a hair more tail rocker as well as tweak on the concave and vee just a tiny bit. It’s crazy what the slightest of adjustments can do, and the final result as you’ve heard me carry on about is pretty damn amazing. This particular board ended up under the feet of @cliffkapono, Blake Howard at CI and then @sageerickson, and thanks to its sturdy glass job is still being enjoyed by friends that pass through town. This one is 6’10” x 20 7/8” x 2 5/8”. Two plus one. 6.5” center with 4” sides. I’m almost 6’1 – 185-190 lbs.

Some incredibly important information on the podcast today from the great and powerful @foundmyfitness! Dr Rhonda Patrick is one of my all time favorite guests and absolutely one of the most brilliant people I know. One of the things she revealed is the importance of Vitamin D during this pandemic! – A study in Indonesia found that out of the patients that died from COVID-19, 98.9% of them were deficient in vitamin D, while only 4% of the patients with sufficient vitamin D died. -A study of patients in New Orleans found that 84.6% of the COVID-19 patients in the ICU were deficient in Vitamin D while only 4% of the patients in the ICU had sufficient levels of Vitamin D. -A study in the Philippines found that for every standard deviation increase in vitamin D people were 7.94 times more likely to have a mild rather than severe COVID-19 outcome and 19.61 times more likely to have a mild rather than critical outcome. 70% of the US population is vitamin D insufficient and 28.9% are deficient in Vitamin D. Being deficient in vitamin D can have severe health consequences. This is serious shit, folks. This was just one of many important topics she covered! Spread the word!! The podcast is available now.
