A Great Decade to Come

Back when we were kids, we all thought that by 2010 we'd be flying in cars, living in space, and would have destroyed Planet Earth. 2010 is just a few hours away and none of the Sci-Fi movies proved to be right. Life is still cruising along, but much has changed, and the next decade is sure to bring about some significant changes in surfing. Here are HSD's predictions for the next 10 years:

- People will be riding a variety of boards that are shorter and fatter than previous decades.
- People will experiment with fins, riding 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 fins
- Shapers with hand-shaping skills will still design the best boards
- Computers will not replace workers in surfboard factories
- Surfboard building materials will become more worker and environmentally friendly
- HSD is going to lead to the way in progressive designs that work for all surfer, not just pros
- California will continue to lead surf industry in design and style
