The boys from Get Out and Surf sit down with Robert August for another, in-depth conversation about the ins and outs of surfboard shaping. But more specifically, the trials and tribulations you experience when shaping your own board and how the technology has changed over the past 60 years. They expose their secret surfboard specs, how to choose the right board for each unique session, and much more. Can you believe that Robert’s board in the Endless Summer in 1964 weighed 50 pounds? We’ve come a long way since the early days and Robert has been there each step of the way. This 45 min Podcast is pure gold for all the surfboard nerds out there. LISTEN HERE
and BY THE WAY……..
If you’ve been teeter-tottering on the edge of booking your next surf trip, here’s some incentive for you. All trips booked within the month of May (May 1st – 31st) will be entered in the Robert August surfboard raffle. No, you don’t have to visit us in May, you just need to call us and book your trip (for whenever) by the end of the month. Robert has shaped over 45,000 boards in his life so you could say he knows what he’s doing when the surfboard foam starts flying around. The lucky winner will have free reign over our surf shop and can pick any of the 20+ Robert August. shapes from the rack. We’ve got a spunky 5’6 twin fin / 7’6 fun shapes, and 9’0 + logs for the heavy hitters. I’ll spare you from the predictable “kid in a candy store” cliche…
