I just got the sneak peek at what’s to come over at C4 Waterman HQ. Todd showed me some new products that blew my mind. One of them was a full carbon fiber distance racing SUP that I think was 14 ft long. The whole shape and design looked like it was one of those spy planes the U.S. Air Force has. He let me take a picture of it but it’s still in my camera. I also got a quick 5 to 10 sec video of Todd in front of a huge room full of boards, paddles, dirt bikes, tow in surf gear, etc. It’s like a candy store for guys. He said I can post it for everyone to see.
I’m also excited for the new Jimmy Lewis shapes. I just spoke w/ Jimmy via email and his new shapes sound perfect for bigger guys like me that want to surf. Check out my Jimmy Lewis 11′ x 30″ x 4.5″ that I just sold.
I got my hands on a C4 Waterman 10′ board to try out bc the 10′6″ now feels pretty stable to me. It took about 10 hours on it to feel as comfortable on it as I did on the Jimmy Lewis 11′er. We’ll see if I can ride the 10′ C4 at 210 lbs+.
We have a new south swell that came in yesterday. I caught some of it today. Yesterday looked super awesome and to top it off the U.S. Airforce’s Thunderbirds were performing right above the surf break. Cool.
