To celebrate a summer of America style, the SWELL crew called up our boys at Catchsurf for a party wave session at Salt Creek. We threw on our finest american attire, and took over the middle peak for some flag-waving fun.
The art of soft-top party waves follows a unique ettiquitte code. It can get dudes pretty sour if you dont do it right.
Here’s the road to respect on the Odysea:
1. Dont paddle straight out the back and start picking off choice set waves
2. Pull into some closeouts tubes before paddle-battling for the clean ones
3. Tell a short boarder that they can hop you, since you wont be heaving airs or snaps
4. Throw in some fun moves like soul arching, cross-stepping, and jitter bugging
5. Fins first take-off trick is like pulling a coin from behind a kid’s ear, but do it anyways
6. Bump your buddies and wear Patriotic Apparel!!!

What better way to kick of summer than a celebratory soft-top session at Salt Creek Beach? So the SWELL crew called up Johnny at CatchSurf, we grabbed the best of our patriotic apparel, and charged down to take over the peak during a pumping south swell.

What’s on every grommet’s Xmas list this year? The Beater!
These classic foam boards are great fun for everyone and crucial to everyone’s quiver. From groms looking to transition into surfing to rippers wanting to cut loose in some shore pound, anyone can enjoy the Beater. The sturdy stinger make surfing and skimming these a breeze even for some of the larger fellows out there. Tow it behind a boat or belly surf it into the sand, these tough little boards are up to the challenge!
So grab yourself a beater and scope this latest edit of Morgan Just on his 54” Finless. He takes his Beater from Trestles to the Wedge and shows us all how to jam that thing down the line.
The second annual Trestles Raid just went down, and the pack of San Clemente surf rats showed up in force. Led by Riley Metcalf aka “Captain Barbossa” and a crew twice the size as last year shredded in full costume with decorated boards to boot. The always tense line-up at Lower Trestles only had a few eggy hard board hold-outs who fileted a couple crew members, but they successfully took over the wave and already antsy for the next ambush.
Viewer Discretion Advised
Success was owed to the boys at Catchsurf, who supplied heaps of Odysea Soft-tops, Beater boards, and some explicitly themed shapes. Beater Boy Johnny Redmond was in rare form, rocking the assless chaps and other “foreign objects” to match his uber phallic sled.
Catchsurf boards aren’t your boggy Wavestorm COSTCO board either. The lightweight performance of the Odysea lets you surf it like a shortboard without the thing flexing and flopping down the face. Made in San Clemente Ca, the CatchSurf boys have debunked the soft-top stigma since the beachbreaks are littered with this safe alternative when conditions aren’t optimal for your daily driver.
