Hydroflex Surfboards continues to improve upon their current selection of both surfboard shapers and board models to ensure the greatest selection for all of their customers. Below are some of the newest boards that are available for purchase; which includes some high performance and alternative shapes to suit a variety of different surfing conditions! I have had my eye on the Haydenshapes Shred Sled for quite some time now and I think that it might be the next addition to my quiver.

Surfing the Ends of the Earth

Mountain Lion Sighting | Orange County, CA

I was going through my photo archives and came across these pictures that I took last summer in the middle of July. This is a mountain lion that was about 10 feet behind my house as it walks around and then settled down in a nearby bush. It was an extremely hot day and I imagine it just wanted to relax in the shade.

It was a big ordeal with the Orange County Sheriffs Department Deputies rushing to the scene to ensure everyone's safety, with Fish & Game close behind. While seeing wildlife is nothing new for us, seeing a mountain lion was quite a surprise. I just wonder how many times he has been there and I haven't seen him...





Craigslist Surfboard Deals | Volume 1

I wanted to start a new series that focuses on the best surfboard deals on Craigslist. A lot of my friends ask me to help them buy an used board & I have gotten pretty good at finding great deals. This first volume focuses on surfboards for sale in Orange County, CA. In the coming weeks, I plan to expand to Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. 

The boards listed below all seem to be in great condition without any structural issues or major dings. In addition, they are competitively priced and are a great alternative to buying a brand new board for $600+. I look for boards that are shaped by a well known shaper, lightly used, without discoloring and are in like new condition. If you can pickup one up in this condition for under $275, then you probably got a pretty good deal.

5'8 JC Surfboard - $185
5'9 T Patterson Surfboard - $175
5'10 Stretch Surfboard - $200
5'10 Cole Surfboard - $145
5'11 Rusty Surfboard - $250
