Retro vs Modern Surfboard Design

Jenn had a good question that also felt somewhat challenging to answer. In hindsight, it’s possible the answer felt difficult to articulate because it’s really so simple. There is no benefit to riding one board or the other in terms of retro vs modern, because it’s possible to learn to ride any board well. This is simple a matter of preference. In regards to the fundamentals, they are always the same regardless of the board you’re on.

It feels like a relief to jot that conclusion down here, because I’m not sure that came off in our video. Nonetheless, Coach Ev and myself had a good time batting this one back and forth and I’m sure you will find some nuggets of valve sprinkled in our free association on surfboard design. Thanks for your question, Jenn!
