There's nothing better than emails and letters from happy Grain surfboard owners. Please share your stories with us. The following note came into the shop today from Jess, who had just experienced West coast surf bliss on her 6'0" Waka Fish from Grain Surfboards.
Dear Mike, Brad and Co.A few weeks ago I set out on a journey to visit Steve in Southern California. Since it is dirt cheap to fly with surfboards on Jetblue I had to bring my new board! The board got there and back without a scratch; I wrapped it in pipe insulator and the glassed on fins in a styrofoam box.
I don't think those west coasters knew what hit them when they saw my board. Every break we went to (Blacks, San Onofre, Cardiff reef, Tamarack, and some other place I can't remember near Swamii's) people looked at me with jaws dropped like I was carrying the holy grail. A dialogue with one guy went as follows...
* Guy: "Is that a surfboard?"
* Me: "Yes."
* Guy: (stunned at my response) "Really? How could a surfboard look so beautiful?"Anyway, the surf was great and I had some of my first intense reef sessions on the board.
Lately, I have been riding my fish with two fins and it is AMAZING!!! It's like carving down a mountain of powder or long boarding down freshly paved streets. The board rides like butter! It feels more amazing than any board I have ever ridden... I don't know how you guys did it but the board actually connects with the wave better.Regardless of four fins or two fins the board has been a fun challenge but more importantly an absolute pleasure to ride.Hope all is well. See you at the boat show this weekend!Take care, Jessi
