Rob watches himself ride the ‘Seaside and Beyond’ and the ‘Seaside’ as well.

And so does his friend Rip Zinger.

Rip is a chef from Japan who lives in the apartment behind Rob’s house.

He doesn’t just surf Rob’s boards on most mornings, he also makes Rob and his family breakfast on most mornings.

He describes the perfect pre-surf meal: ‘Kale arugula salad with micro sprouts and apple with condensed balsamic vinegar.

And there you go… it’s what Rob had for breakfast the morning we filmed this.

Rob just recoreded a new episode of The Wire Podcast with us (SpotifyiTunes) and you can hear a snippet from it in the video above.

It shows Rob in the Telos Islands riding both a Helium ‘Seaside’ and a ‘Seaside and Beyond’.

For rights, lefts and more, press play above, or drop in on the whole conversation here.

Dimensions and more.

The ‘Seaside and Beyond’ is sized 6’8, 7’0 and 7’4.

Rob rides the 7’0 and says he has enjoyed it in waves sized from one foot Seaside to big Bombie – the stretch of Uluwatu between Temples and Peak.

Find much more on this new LFT shape right here.

“My quiver is a 5’2 and a 7’0 and there’s nothing in-between [laughing]

My biggest problem right now is this:

I need a board bag designed to fit both a 5’2 and a 7’0 in the same bag.
