To my eye, the Proneman was was the standout surfer in the water today at Malibu. Of all the folks out there, he was by far the fastest, and from the vantage of point of the highway, the most distinctive. All of this riding prone on a 10'4" Simmons Hull reproduction by Paul Gross. It was a pleasure to see him luge at top speed around and beneath the most critical sections of the wave, on a distinctive board in a distinctive way. Form and function all the way.
