Surf 'n Show Surfboard Reviews: Pyzel Gremlin Surfboard

Surf 'n Show Surfboard Reviews: Pyzel Gremlin Surfboard

by Brian Brown December 04, 2018

In this episode I review the Pyzel Gremlin in super fun 1-5’ surf. The Gremlin is a true small wave Groveler with low entry rocker, and its wide point front from center making it a great paddler. The belly of the board is relatively flat making it super fast through flat sections on small waves coupled with medium tail rocker for performance in the pocket.

Surf 'n Show Surfboard Reviews: Firewire x Slater Designs Cymatic Surfboard

by Brian Brown September 11, 2018

In this episode Firewire sends me down two stock 5’3” Slater Design "Cymatic" surfboards designed by Tomo for review. The Cymatic surfs like a HPSB and is very responsive with its short but straight outline offering excellent speed down the line and vertical surfing in the pocket.

Surf 'n Show Surfboard Reviews: Sharp Eye Modern 2 Surfboard

by Brian Brown August 10, 2018

The SharpEye Modern 2 surfboard is such a sick little board. I tested it in 1-4' surf as a Thruster and as a Twin Fin with a small trailer. It is loaded with volume for great paddling and extremely fast down the line. It also has a pulled in tail and a bit of tail rocker to jam it in the pocket like a performance board.

by Brian Brown August 10, 2018

In this episode I review a custom HT2 in (Holy Toledo 2) E2 Technology by Sharpeye Surfboards. The HT2 is the same model that Filipe Toledo won the 2017 Hurley Pro at Trestles with slight differences according to Marcio Zouvi.

Surf 'n Show Surfboard Reviews: Channel Islands Rocket Wide Surfboard

by Brian Brown July 17, 2018

In this episode I review the “Rocket Wide” which is the latest edition of small wave Grovelers in the CI line up of surfboards.

I test both of these boards in perfect 1-2’ and 3-4’ surf to find the range that best suits this model. I found the Rocket Wide to be very fast, responsive, and most of all it has good flow in...
