Punker Pat is on The Wire
In this new episode of The Wire Podcast Pat Towersey tells us his favorite fin combination for top turns like this on his Tomo Evo. 
In this brand new episode, Pat Towersey tells us:

- What it's like to have Kelly Slater as a houseguest.

 - When to surf an Evo (and when not to).

- The one trick to getting in and out barrels while body surfing.

Our favorite part is the hilarious story of how he was given the nickname Punker Pat at 12 years old while being strangled on the floor of a home owned by the founder of Volcom.

Wingnut finds a lip that pitches on his 7'6 Seaxe.
For the first time in 2017 we've refreshed many surf shops with a new batch of Robert "Wingnut" Weaver's favorite boards for tripping through Costa Rica.

You'll find the Seaxe on surf shop racks from 7'2 to 7'10, and the Wingnut Noserider from 9'0 to 9'8.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves. We report conditions in "A moment in time" and conditions can change right after the report or between reports. Don't kill the messenger. Email Mother Nature for changing the conditions if you miss it. Thanks for checking WBlivesurf.com. The only report in town that checks the surf 4 times daily with our feet in the sand during rain, sleet, snow, or shine.
