Timmy Patterson has been on my surfboard wish list for a long time. So earlier this year, I went ahead and ordered three of them in the lead-up to a major Indo trip.
“Just give me your ideal three-board quiver,” I told them. “Something that will take care of me in most conditions, anywhere in the world — but especially Indo.”
A few months later, I arrived at Kandui Resort with a TP Stoke-ed, Synthetic ‘84, and Step-Up in tow. For the uninitiated, that’s a high-performance shortboard, small-wave performance board, and, well…a step-up.
Over the next couple weeks, I tested these boards in a range of conditions, most of which could be considered exceptional.
Don’t shoot the board tester.
