Check this new Albacore video:  Jacob Pedrana at Sunshine Beach 


Jacob has been pushing the albacore harder than anyone I know. Like most finless riders, he was a bit timid on going backside but then he focused on it and figured it out.  Now he perfers backside more than frontside.  You actually have better control backside and you get the supreme cutback in.  Actually, I think that name will stick.  The "Cutback Supreme"  I like it.  Look for it in this video.  I was out on this day as well but my waves did not make the cut.  I was pulling into crash tubes to feel the rail in the steep face.  The hollower the wave the better the albacore holds in.  It is surprising.
