La Palue Surf Guide

Brittany is home to many surf spots, such as La Torche, La Palue and Quiberon. The Crozon Peninsula is a perfect surf destination when there is not much swell in the Atlantic. When the waves are under 4 ft, La Palue is one of the only beaches that produces waves. Crozon is still a bit undiscovered by surfing tourism, while La Palue is an absolute world class beach break. Uncrowded, far from any surf camps or hostels, and beautiful surroundings. Here is FoamieCrews surf spot guide on La Palue.

indio fishy 5'6 review pukas

Indio by Pukas surfboard review – Fishy 5’6 soft top

Spains prime surf board brand Pukas recently initiated its soft top label Indio. Indio has released a whole range of soft surfboards, varying from small foam nuggets to 10ft SUPs. They have two fish-shaped models. We tested the Indio 5’6 Fishy – a small but wide entry level foam surfboard. Our review of the Indio Fishy was in 1ft onshore conditions. Our verdict: It really feels like a great surfboard for intermediate surfers that aren’t too heavy. However, the 5’6 Fishy has some downsides too (hint: durability and flex). Enjoy our review of the Pukas foam fishy.

Soft top surfboards for beginners? Think again!

A decade ago foamies were almost exclusively used by surf rentals and surf schools. O, how times have changed! Soft tops have been embraced by surfers of all abilities – also the pro’s! I think the street cred that soft tops have now is for a large part a result of pro surfers getting on the foamie band wagon. Seeing (semi) pro surfers shred waves to pieces on foam boards… all of a sudden advanced surfers want to ride soft tops too! See how Mick Fanning, Lee Ann Curren, Bethany Hamilton, Jamie O’Brien and Ben Gravy get their piece of the foam pie.
