      To be a well rounded surf photographer, shooting from the water is key.

            Developed in 1933, the surf mat has been one of the more undercover alternative surf crafts providing surfers with an exhilarating, fast ride for years, turning seemingly bad waves into a more than worthwhile session. What most people don't realize is that while they may not be designed for high-flying aerial antics like a body board, they are however, high performance wave riding vehicles, allowing for super fast speed runs along the perfect trim spot that each ridden wave offers. In this episode of Surf Sufficient, shaper/surfer Daniel Thomson shares some tips on how to optimize your ride. Changing the internal pressure of the mat by squeezing and gripping the fabric, the rider can alter the thickness, buoyancy and rocker, therefore changing speed and control of the mat. The air pressure is the key. A surf mat requires less air in smaller, flatter waves and a bit more air in larger more powerful waves. However, experienced mat riders prefer to ride a softer inflation as doing this allows the mat to run faster over the water. A mat rider can experience many different levels of riding performance by simply adjusting the mats air pressure between rides.

            • DIY Surfboard Bike Rack - Surf Sufficient

              03:29

              from www.KORDUROY.tv / Added

              For those who travel around town by bicycle, they know riding with a surfboard under the arm can be cumbersome and awkward. In this episode of Surf Sufficient, our friend Travis Newhouse helps make that bike commute to the beach much sweeter. By adding a surfboard rack to your rig, your shred sled can be stowed comfortably as you head out for a stoke. These instructions are a guideline. Each bike and surfboard are different. Be sure to measure your own bike and surfboard, and dry-fit the pieces before you glue them together. We want you to have a safe ride to the beach - make sure the rack will not inhibit your movement on the bike, and that your front tire can turn freely without contacting the surfboard. Materials: 4 - 1" PVC T-joint 6 - 1" PVC 90 degree elbow 4 - 1.75" diameter hose clamps 10' PVC pipe (Schedule 40) 6' foam pipe insulation for 1" pipe PVC cement bungee cords Tools: hacksaw sandpaper or file measuring tape flathead screwdriver Instructions: 1. Measure the diameter the bike's seat tube and down tube. 2. Transfer measurement to the opening at the top of the T-joint, and cut off the top of the T-joint. 3. Place one T-joint on the bike near enough to the pedal to measure the distance to the outside of the pedal. Include enough clearance for your foot, but shorter distance will result in a stronger rack. On this bike, the distance was 8.5 inches. 4. Attach T-joints to bike with hose clamps. For now, tighten only enough to remain in position. 5. Cut 2 pieces of PVC pipe to the length measured in Step 3. Clean up the ends of the cuts with sandpaper or a file. Insert PVC pipe pieces into T-joints. 6. Install two 90* elbows onto PVC pipes, with opening facing the ground. 7. Cut two 3" pieces of PVC pipe, and insert into 90* elbow. 8. Install T-joints onto short pieces such that the openings are facing each other. 9. Determine the length of the crossbeam by measuring distance between the T-joints. Be sure to include 1" at each end for the portion of the pipe that fits into the joint. Cut PVC pipe to length for the crossbeam, and insert the crossbeam into the T-joints. 10. Cut two 11" pieces of PVC pipe, and insert into the ends of the T-joints that face the ground. The suggested length is to fit most surfboards and bikes. Make sure the rack will not extend too close to the ground. 11. Install 90* elbow at the bottom of the pipe, with its opening facing away from the bike. 12. Measure the thickness of your surfboard. Be sure to consider the bulk of a travel bag, if you use one. Add approximately 1/2" for the thickness of the foam padding. Cut two pieces of PVC pipe to length, and insert into the opening of the 90* elbow. 13. Install 90* elbows on the ends of each short piece, with opening facing up. 14. Cut two 12" pieces of PVC pipe, and insert into the 90* elbows. The length of this piece should be less than the width of the board when mounted in the rack. This will ensure the bungee cord can hold the board in the rack. 15. With all the pieces dry-fit, check the fit of your board in the rack. 16. Before disassembling, mark the alignment of pipes and joints that extend out from the bike. Draw a line on the pipes and the T-joints attached to the bike, and also at the top 90 degree elbows. 17. Glue the pipes to the T-joints attached to the bike. Be sure to align the marks made in Step 16. 18. Glue the 90 degree elbows to the pipes extending from the bike. Be sure to align the marks made in Step 16. 19. On a flat surface, glue remaining two T-joints to the crossbeam. Use the flat surface to ensure the T-joint are aligned in the same plane. Also, glue the two 3" pieces into the T-joints. 20. Glue the crossbeam into 90* elbows. 21. Glue the 11" pieces of PVC pipe into the bottom of the T-joints. 22. Continue to glue pieces: 90* elbow followed by short piece of pipe, then another 90* elbow, and finally the 12" vertical piece. 23. Attach the foam insulation to the rack. 24. Drill holes for the bungee cords. Ensure that the holes are low enough to avoid metal hooks contacting the surfboard. 25. Enjoy your ride to the beach!

                Influenced by accomplished San Diego shaper Jeff McCallum, Bill Sager tapped his design background to refine a patterning technique based on strategically removing sections of gloss and polish on resin tinted boards with nothing more than a rough sponge and masking tape. The result is a subtle design that is really cool looking. Check it out!

                  In this new theme for Surf Sufficient, we will periodically connect with different travelers and share their views on hitting the road. Matt Whitehead is a laborer from NSW, Australia who left school at 14 and became a plumber. He's since worked to save enough money then travel the world several times over in a uniquely minimalist style that often includes bicycling long distances. He's known for having biked from Nova Scotia to Central America, having a penchant for stubbie twin fins, and going on anti-materialist rants over a good beer. In short he's one of the best humans we know. Last week, we were lucky enough to have him peddle through the Korduroy headquarters, midway through another continental journey en route to somewhere in Central America. Over a day, he imparted some wisdoms gleaned from miles on the road. Enjoy.

                  • Dial In Your Fins - Surf Sufficient

                    Fins are perhaps the most overlooked aspect of surf equipment. Sure we call our boards thruster or twinnies, but the conversation then quickly moves to the sexy outline, dimensions, and volume. Fins are an after thought and since an extra pair can set you back nearly $100 bucks, it's an easy component to your board's overall performance to forget about. However as you will learn in this episode of Surf Sufficient with USA team coach and surfboard designer Sean Mattison, the configuration, rake and surface area of your fins can radically change the character of your board. All of a sudden $100 bucks seems a lot cheaper than buying that extra stick when the waves get more punchy. Plus a good set of fins will usually outlast the life of your average surfboard. So on your next session, take a few sets of fins down to the beach. Getting your board dialed with different performance options will save you car space, money and help you learn more about surfboard hull performance by isolating the fin variable from the equation.
