Have her start focusing on setting a stronger edge. If she can get her pop up a little, you could safely drop the speed to at least 20, maybe 19. The lower speed you go, the less brutal the crashes...

If you don't want to wear boardshorts, try Jolyn brand swimsuits. Many of the female surfers I know wear Jolyn bikinis as they have draw strings in the waist and racer back tops designed for high...

If you are sanding, cleaning your teak is most likely a waste of time and money.

Teak oils and the like are a mixture of evaporating solvents and solids. What you're probably noticing on sunny or...

Another reason I don't think you'll see many of these surf parks is that outside of current beach towns, there are so few people who know how to surf. I'm sure surfing on these manufactured waves is...

If your suit is an O'Neill Boost (seems to be the most common for wakeboarding), you can send it directly to O'Neil. I think it costs $20 per corner... not sure what the neck seal costs, but I'm sure...
