You'd be smiling too if you were standing under the Golden Gate with the perfect California all-rounder!
With the AwayCo “boardless travel” system launching globally this year, a few of our good friends have gathered in San Francisco for a week long summit to finalize everything about what might just become every travelling surfer’s favourite startup. Among the ambassadors is long term Traktor Team rider Ace Buchan, as well as surfing industry legends Peter King and Jacob Wooden, who create some of the finest content in and around the WSL all year long.
As soon as Ace arrived, he grabbed a fresh HYFI Monsta Box to ride around town, including an epic novelty surf at Fort Point. PK was there to capture it all, while Woody has been riding almost exactly the same board further south around Ventura. Board breakdowns, below:
Freezing, fat and crumbly, but oh so memorable. Classic Ace, having the time of his life. HYFI Monsta Box 5'9" x 19" x 2 5/16" x 26.5L (he's 5'9" / 76kg). Clip Peter King / AwayCo
Woody's almost as talented in front of the lense as his is behind it, and that's saying something. Sending it in SoCal. HYFI Monsta Box round tail 5'9" x 19" x 2 5/16" x 26.3L (he's 5'10" / 73kg). Photo Brent Flaaten
