The Darc Drive Mini Fin from Shapers

The Darc Drive from Shapers Fins is an add-on stabilizer fin for your quad setups. It adds drive and control, and it's meant to give you the best of both worlds from quad and thruster setups with none of the drawbacks.
The White Diamond 2 (sequel to Roberts' award winning model) can grovel the summer waves, but will also deliver high performance maneuverability in good waves of up to 2 feet over head.

Spectrum AM-1 Fins from Shapers

The Spectrum AM1 fins from Shapers are hard to beat as an all around thruster setup. It's a super balanced template that will work very well in any and all conditions. They're drivey, maneuverable, practically drag free, and made out of a sick material that flexes and bends exactly the way you want it to.
Rusty's Slayer model was designed for big waves, but it's not a typical step up board. It rides a little shorter, puts the wide point closer to the nose, has a somewhat relaxed rocker, and adds a bit of thickness in place of more typical length.

Product Review: Surf Munkey Hat

Sunburns might seem like a minor annoyance, but there are more serious ramifications to consider- like skin cancer. And since May is skin cancer awareness month, I thought this would be the perfect time to check out a product from the California local company: Surf Munkey.

The Fartknocker from Stewart Surfboards packs a lot of volume, but it's on the thinner side for a board with so much float- which makes it not only a great groveler, but also a viable aerial board option.

The Pier Pony from JS is was designed to catch even the smallest sloppiest waves a lazy summer season can dish out. In terms of overall volume, you can ride it as small as a 5'0 and it'll still pack more foam than most boards in your quiver.

The Knubster VS Fin from FCS

The Knubster from FCS is small stabilizer fin meant to be added to your quad setups. It's tiny. Small enough actually that you could stash it in your boardshorts pocket if you want to. Plugging it in generally makes a subtle difference, and experimenting with it is pretty fun.

Surfboard of the Week: The DWART from Rusty

The DWART from Rusty is one of the many high volume, "fish meets standard shortboard", hybrid shapes out there- billing itself as a 'one board quiver'. Usually these types of surfboards all feel pretty similar... Not the case with the DWART.
A little wider than a regular shortboard, but not quite as wide as typical for the trend of short wide hybrids. The Vapors, from SUPERbrand surfboards is meant to be a higher volume, easy paddling, speed generating surfboard that doesn't sacrifice performance.
