SoCal Demo Tour Recap

22 Jul , 2011  

By Bruce Johnson /F-One Americas

Seems like we picked the perfect week to head to San Diego for a long overdue demo weekend.
Accompanied by fellow F-Oners Sylvie and Zola , Friday afternoon greeted us with perfect 15 knot Silver Strand conditions….who says it does not blow in the summer !

The day called for our 13m Volt and 14m B4, paired up with the Trax 6 138 and 5’4″ Fish combo proved to be the perfect set up for the knee high waves and semi onshore conditions.It was great to hang out with local riders Thomas and Marko and share a sweet afternoon on the beach.
Saturday was time to groove on our SUP line up at Cardiff Reef , one of the many perfect SUP locations sprinkled throughout the San Diego area . A river mouth flat water area flowing out to a beach break and reef set up , perfect ….yes ! The day brought John Cuchna of Xdream Sports out to the beach as well as our good friends Yoko , Vanessa , Benjamin, tata Claude , Kiko , Marko and Miguel … boards were demoed and smiles and positive feedback followed shortly thereafter.
Our gracious hosts Yoko and Vanessa provided an awesome BBQ Saturday night with more friends joining in . BIG thanks to you guys for making us feel right at home , cheers !
We headed back to Silver Strand on Sunday , only to be greeted with more perfect 15 knot conditions ( remember , this is San Diego )…… the demo was on !
Good times , good friends , a little wind , a little Source and some SUP made up for the perfect demo weekend….cant wait to head back .
Until the next one , cheers ,
Bruce
