Citizen Steve at Nelscott sent us a photo of what was described as the latest design in surf boards. A brave test pilot in a wet suit was spotted readying the new surfing device for it’s inaugural “wave trials” taking on small to medium sized waves just offshore.
Due to concerns for inadvertent disclosure of trade secret designs and other highly classified performance features, the photo above was the only one taken of the event. Check surfing recreation and trade publications for the latest updates. But one avid surfer told NewsLincolnCounty.com, “off the record,” that only time will tell whether this brave new surfboard design will turn out to be everything it was quacked up to be and whether it can credibly fill the bill for international surf competitions as seen annually here at Nelscott.
