Emma J says:

Hi, I surf a 6’5 x 18 7/8 x 2 5/8. I am a beginner/intermediate surfer and weigh 130lb and 5’5 tall. Do you think this is a good board for me? p.s love your channel!

Miss Mansfield says:

I am 5 feet tall and around 105lbs and a beginner still I think. I like two foot waves but am reaching for three feet. What should I buy?

Michael Macdonald says:

What do I do when I want to go surfing when on my period. I’m afraid of sharks getting attracted to me, and biting my vagina. Any help?

Trevor Rutzke says:

im into surf life the endless summer bc im a hippy ✌… anyway how important is longboard size? can anyone just hop on a 9 footer and be alright?

Brendan McMurrer says:

you guys should do a video prepping for that big swell about to hit Costa Rica. Looks pretty big

Anonymoose says:

With the repair you were making, depending on the plastic used in the mount, you might get better strength by filling that cavity around the screw with epoxy. Superglue only works in repairs where it’s a microscopic layer between two pieces that match perfectly, and some plastics don’t like it at all.

Showing my ignorance, when I saw the video title I thought we were going to see a new hybrid *fish* native to Costa Rica. Little knowing that it wasn’t a fish at all. Duh…

I can talk all day about tunnels and channeling, and length versus your own weight as it relates to competition water skis, but when it comes to surfboards, my cat knows about as much about them as I do. LOL

Fascinating video!

Autistic Guitar says:

so the only downside to a fish is that you cant duckdive it as easily? Arent there any other downsides?

Susan Overson says:

Dumb question, why do shortboards always have a pointy nose as it seems potentially more dangerous than a slightly rounded one?

Andres says:

Hey I want to learn how to surf but the waves here in florida are kind of small. I was looking into a board by catch surf called the stump because they say it is fun for small waves. Any suggestions?

Kaden Manculich says:

I know this might be a stupid question but I just started surfing and I live near Galveston should I use a short board or a long board the waves there aren’t huge????

Christopher Timm says:

hi Guys. I have a problem, when I catch an unbroken wave I feel as if I’m going to fast to do a pop up. This is on about a 5 foot wave. my friend says I should paddle at a 45 degree angle to the wave. Any thought’s?

Jamie says:
