Check out the Gizmo Foil Board in action with John Akerman surfing on it in the Florida Gulf of Mexico. He both paddled in and towed assisted by a jet ski. Super fun to watch! Also check out this Video clip from the same day: Photos + Video Credit: John Birch
John Akerman and Phase Five teamed up to create a wake skimboard unlike anything we have ever produced. The MVP features a new RidgeGrip grab rail design that helps the rider grip the board while preforming grab tricks. We kept the Matrix outline for the MVP but John desired to have a thicker core to have more float and forgiveness. The MVP is definitely it’s own animal and it keeps John pushing the limits of the sport.
Words: Jodi Grassman Even on a windy day you can help your surfing by doing some off water training. After doing some cardio it is important to do multiple sets of stretching. Today I worked on my hips, gluts and legs. After doing any type of work out on or off the water, stretching loosens tight muscles and improves your range of motion which ultimately means... more power ;D!
