Like most of his friends, Cane
rides short, tri-finned thrusters and
owns four of them ranging from
6'1" to 6'6" in length. He is one of
the hottest surfers in the area and
one of a handful of east coast
surfers who were invited to com
pete in the United States Surfing
Association's 1993 National Cham
His friend Jon used to ride short
boards, but switched to long boards
after a friend gave him an old 9'4"
a few years ago. He later invested
in a newer nine-foot board. Then,
during his California trip, he blew

other nine-footer designed by one

hoard lets you get more vertical.
You can turn top to bottom."
Both agree that surfers shouldn't
limit themselves to one type hoard
or one style of surfing. After all,
whether you prefer thrashing or
cruising, on short boards or long,
the "soul" purpose of surfing will
always remain the same: To have
