How does skimboarder Blair Conklin "surf" a wave so well, starring "A Wedge Affair"

Blair Conklin is a gentleman you’ll surely be getting to know better in the coming years. Hailing from Laguna Beach, California, Blair’s regarded as the best skimboarder in the world, but that’s not what piqued our interest in the Berkeley grad.
Back in 2018, in the lead up to Stab High, Blair posted a clip on Instagram. In it, he was soaring in Waco on a sub-five-foot foamie; it was impressive. For our inaugural Texan surf party/competition (Stab High), the Laguna Beach and Skim community rallied behind Blair’s golden locks, giving him the public-voted wildcard into the event. And when the rest of the surfers at Stab High showed up with bags bearing anywhere from three to five surfboard, Blair rocked up to the BSR Surf Resort with a tiny case carrying a miniature slice of foam. He then proceeded to blow up and further stamp a space for himself in the world of surf.

Respect The Locals is a series that takes you to some of the world’s best waves and introduces you to the real locals — the ones who were there long before we ever picked up surfboards. Because if we truly want to enjoy these places, we are responsible for protecting the beings that inhabit them.
The Bay of Biscay is a gulf in the Atlantic Ocean that hugs the northern coast of Spain and the Western Coast of France. It’s home to many different creatures, cultures and world-class waves like Mundaka and Hossegor. One thing that makes the bay unique is the Gouf de Capbreton, a deepwater canyon off the coast of Southwest France. The Gouf brings a variety of marine life close to shore and helps funnel swell into Hossegor, where the Quiksilver Pro France is held every year.
With more episodes coming soon, the first edition of Respect The Locals tells the story of the North Atlantic Right Whale. Once common in the Bay of Biscay, it has become an endangered species and the estimated population of 300 now mostly inhabits the Western side of the Atlantic. There are many human-based issues — both historical and present — that threaten North American Right Whales. The good news is there are many things we can do to help.

Longboarding with Tamzen/Sam/Dan and Jay

Decent waves have been hard to find lately so we took off early for Crescent Head, Tamzen and Dan only managed a few before an early onshore kicked in and spoit it, so we rushed back to the Coffs Coast where the wind was still side shore and linked up with Sam, Jay and Eamon for some fun logging waves. The song by Petula Clark was released in 1965, a time where true logging was experiencing rapid development moving from "D" fins to the "Greenough". Its fun searching for the perfect wave but so often you end up back at your local!
