CODY THOMPSON WINS 2020 RED BULL NIGHT RIDERS SURF COMP

Most would say that Jacksonville Beach's coolest and most notorious gathering of the year is the Red Bull Night Riders surf contest. It took place this year on Friday, November 19 but this time, in front of a crowd-less beach at the Mayport Poles. Contestants and employees were the only ones permitted into the contest area due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boldest City Outlasts Oldest

From Florida Board Riders:

November 5, 2020

Pitting the St. Augustine Board Riders against the Jacksonville Board Riders, the Florida Cup kicked off in epic conditions at the Hanna Park poles.

Atlantic Beach, FL - It all came down to the final heat of the day--the waning minutes in fact. As far as Florida surf contests go, Sunday’s inaugural Oldest Vs Boldest, a kickoff to the Florida Board Riders Florida Cup series, almost seemed scripted. An illustrious group of former (and likely future) East Coast champs battled it out in clean, post-Nor’easter conditions at a premier sandbar with Florida Cup points--and regional bragging rights--on the line.

For this episode of Test Drive (Season 2) Summer edition, we continue the series with a newer/refined small wave model from Sharp Eye Surfboards, the "Modern 2".

Firewire Spitfire Helium Review: Test Drive Season 2 Episode #1

Firewire Spitfire Helium Review: Test Drive Season 2 Episode #1

For the first episode of Test Drive (Season 2) in 2017, we kick off the series with a model that Garrett is very familiar from Firewire Surfboards...the Firewire "Spitfire" featured in Firewire's new Helium construction. The Spitfire model is a small wave/groveler with unique features like the step-down tail rail that allows the board to perform in the pocket on those smaller spring/summer days.

Watch Garrett put the Spitfire model to the test in semi-clean, small yet fun conditions. The Helium construction proves to be a great option for one of Firewire's most proven models.
