Joel Parkinson getting towed into 2 foot waves. Seriously.
Probably the closest you’ll ever get to the big wave. As you may know, I’m not a huge man of GoPro footage. But this is alright.
Seems like another in their line of in-between boards.
What designer Dan Mann has to say:
“The UNIBROW has roots in a design I’ve been riding as my regular short board, mixed with what I’ve learned from designing and riding the Dominator, Sweet Potato and Potato-Nator. The outline curve is compressed from a regular shortboard without sacrificing the width needed to maximize paddling and planing speed.
The goal was to design a very high-performance shortboard that didn’t feel too ‘bulky’ in good surf when you can ride something other than a groveler. The rail profile is dropped and very sensitive, especially through the tail. The bottom has an aggressive single concave that starts in the nose, carries through the deep spot forward of the fins and splits into a subtle double concave that then directs the water flow to the inside of the front fins.”
I have a lot more stops to fill in my quiver before purchasing something like this.
Dig the music. Good surfing.

If all these Chinese surfing clips for the Hainan Wanning Riyue Bay International Surfing Festival are supposed to amp you up, it sure is having the opposite effect. Some real weak looking waves.
Mark Matthews disappears for a good 15 seconds before reappearing. Interesting, behind the wave camera angle where you don’t actually see anything but surfer dropping/surfer reappearing as ride ends.
If only I could find a job in the tropics to sustain a life there.
