HEY ROB, WHAT IS THE SEASIDE..?
Just evolving the Go Fish to something new, really. The Go Fish goes fast and feels skatey and loose and I love it, and riding it for a couple years made me want to feel more high performance – more carves, tighter turns. So the Seaside is about refining… less area in the tail, narrowing the tips of the swallow, creating more curve and narrowing the nose. All elements for ripping while the Go Fish stays cruisey and fun.
The Seaside is quad only, why?
I decided that if i was going to make a quad I would make a quad that’s strictly a quad … Design the concaves and bottom contours around that. I actually redesigned my entire concave setup that I’ve been using on the Moonbeam and Go Fish, and did it with the quad setup in mind so that it all works together.
Why name this shape after your home break, Seaside?
Naming surfboards might be the hardest thing to do on the planet [laughing]. It’s just the perfect little stick when I surf my home spot, Seaside.
Why is the Seaside built in Helium?
The first one I made for Tahiti was LFT and I was riding it in 6 foot tubes. But most everyone surfs a shape like the Seaside at beach breaks and little point breaks, so we made it in Helium because it’s really light, very responsive, really flexy with a softer feel and very durable. It’s the best option for a shape like the Seaside in smaller, weaker waves, I think.

The same expanded lifespan beyond traditional materials that many expect from FST, in addition to the gentle compression beneath your feet that others love about LFT. We used the lightest foam we have to make Helium, combined with a brand new rail crafted from both balsa wood and paulownia wood. It’s all wrapped in a brand new deckskin material we’re introducing for the first time.

Great product and amazing customer service
The black box 3 surfs well in average waves and makes the most out of poorer conditions and easy to get good carry through mushy sections. Feels good to paddle and easy to get into waves. Had a surf the other night in some clean small waves and the board was fantastic. Really responsive, and carried good speed and drive out of turns. Loads of fun. Very happy with the board.
This is my new go to wax. It is sticky and stays on the board really well. If you want a sticky wax that has true grit grip but does not build up, this is a good choice. Some of the waxes kind of just stay on and build up and are not that sticky. This one stays on for a solid two- three hour session and sticks to you really nice. I can ride, fly, spin, barrel, spiral, quantum shift, quasar, and trapeze all the while staying on the board... me my board my balance and this wax... Sticky Bumps... improve your ride...
Very cool i luv it
