Isolated Perfection

by Ben P on March 22, 2017

A little afternoon good vibes to get you amped up for the week ahead. Asher Pacey’s grace on a wave is something to stop and watch, so you if you haven’t seen him in the water in person, just take a minute to watch this short clip of him in this fun edit from Rhythm. Just look at those fun rights over the ruler edge reef pass, the board’s he’s riding too makes those waves look super fun!

This sort of clip is the definition of hearing a whisper of a remote wave off the coast of Australia and going for it. Yes it might take a decent amount of research but nothing you can’t slowly achieve especially with google maps, a few cold beers, some mates egging each other on and getting that stoke high and mighty!

Hello, Sea

by Tommy Barrels on March 8, 2017

What Youth short films are our favourite here at Boardcave. The boys always manage to get a bunch of our favourite surfers together for films and mini series making them a pleasure to watch.

“hello, sea” is a timeless What-Youth-esque documentation of the classic Mentawai surf trip. Beers, shredding, adventures, mis-adventures and letting the good times roll. Here we see the usual suspects, Chippa, Craig, Yago, Dillon, Eric and Lee Wilson doing what they do best, absolutely tearing.

Asher Pacey in the Maldives

Asher Pacey has a style that’s hard to hate! Take some time out and escape to the tropics with a few fast and flowy lines with the Twin Fin master.

‘WINTERLUST’ featuring a handful of surfers – Oliver Kurtz, Noah Wegrich, Mitch Coleborn, and Colin Moran were headed away from their natural habitat and into the frozen unknown at the very same time. For the next few days, they discovered a new definition of “scoring” at Mammoth Mountain. And once they returned to their accustomed, liquid-form water, the coast had come alive. Here’s their story – a journey into interdisciplinary shredding, of sorts.

Stab in the Dark: Volume 2 – Seal Approved

by Tommy Barrels on October 20, 2016

Dane Reynolds deciding on the eventual winner of 2016 Stab in the Dark contest, #74 by Pyzel Surfboards.

Following the success of the ‘Stab in the Dark’ competition featuring Julian Wilson, the team over at Stab decided double down and do Stab in the Dark 2016. In partnership with some big names like Swell and Corona Extra, Stab flew former WCT surfer Dayne Reynolds aka ‘Seal Tooth’ out 40 hours from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa on one mission. To find the best surfboard or shaper in the world.

Please note though: These surfboards may not give you the ability to surf like Dane…

With a 10 day time limit in June, Dane was the perfect candidate to test out 13 high performance surfboards with his go-for-broke style. The boards had no name, no dimensions and no distinguishing markings (other than their shapes). The amount of boards was this year bumped up from 11 to 13 with Dayne required to surf at least twice on each model to help him make the decision. Narrowing down his selection from 13 toa final four, Dane finally selected #74 shaped by Pyzel Surfboards, Jon Pyzel as his number one pick.

“I’m kind of saving this wave for good waves because it looks good. It kind of looks like a low rocker looks like it should be pretty drivey and hopefully good for today.”

The #74 was a 6’0 X 19 1/18 x 2 3/8 and was suited for Dane’s style of surfing.

“I kind of went through and rode the ones I was digging the last few and rode them later when it (surf) was better.” he said.

Dane noted on his sheet that the board was best suited for 5ft tubes and cutbacks.

“#74 and #31 (JS) are more drivey, down the line, point break boards, but both of them have really good qualities that I really like surfing. If I were going to go surf right now, fun waves, I would be the most excited to surf this (Pyzel), so I’m going to deem it the winner.”
