I don’t surf, I skate. When I see Gerry Lopez ride a board all I can think is: I have shit for style and Gerry had it figured out before I was born.

My wife and I got to  meet Gerry Lopez in August when he was in town promoting his book.  A thrill  that I will remember the rest of my life.  Gerry is humble and soft spoken, but one immediately senses his greatness when he speaks. We also met his wife who is a very nice and interesting lady.  What a wonderful couple.

Gerry influenced so many surfers worldwide.  My first board as a kid in the mid 80's was a GL "Lightening Bolt" single fin 7 foot.  Now that board was fun to wax.  I still remember the smell of Mr. Zoggs Sex Wax & hauling that big board with my buddy on the bus to Trestles in the summer. Good times*

I wonder if John Holmes was on the beach listening to this music?

The coiled is perfect, then. It's short so it doesn't tangle. It will absorb the force and you won't feel that sudden tug that regular leashes do. It's also not powerful enough to pull the board to smack you. Give it a try. I think you'll like it.
Mitchell Latzman
Mitchell Latzman - 11 years ago
I will give it a try but it's just when the stretchy quality of the leash itself comes into play with the shortness of the leash it could spell disaster. I mean you could always have a leash that has connectors in multiple places so it doesn't tangle.
Abdul Alkurdi
Abdul Alkurdi - 11 years ago
Give the coiled a try, they don't have that much force that will pull the board that fast towards you to hit your face.
Mitchell Latzman
Mitchell Latzman - 11 years ago
They always get wrapped around my legs. If I were to get a coiled leash the board would probably come back and hit me in the face.
Abdul Alkurdi
Abdul Alkurdi - 11 years ago
Why do you hate them? Maybe we can make something new.

I just have a problem with getting off of my board after the wave is over and there's just white water.

Classic footage and sounds. The pretty blonde at 2:10 is now in her 60s--time flies. I wonder if Lopez apologized to that guy at 2:10. Above all--where's this break? Looks like a south swell on Oahu somewhere. Doesn't look ledgy enough to be Bowls, though.
