Test riding Woody Logic 6' 7" Quad Fish.

  • I've been wanting to ride this board for a while.  This morning I decided that today would be the day.  The waves where chest high on the sets.  A beautiful day with a light off shore breeze.

The board paddles good and is easy to duck dive.  It's very similar to boards I ride most of the time.  

The first thing I noticed was how fast it is.  That's important here.  I'm looking forward to riding it more when we get some fun waves.  Thanks to my girlfriend Julie for the pics.

Matthew after shock.

Looking around the beachside you can still see natural and man made debris from Matthew's strong winds.  A lot of plants are still suffering from wind burn and there are still lots of traps on roofs  The beach has changed a lot.  The dunes got mowed down by the swell.  The lifeguard station lost about 3-4 feet of beach sand from under it.

The public beaches parks like the one by my house are still a mess.  It's a work in progress for the county.

Now that the dunes are gone.  The water comes much closer to the road at high tide.  A lot has changed since Matthew.  It's still a great place to live and enjoy.
