A few weeks back, Surfer examined the quivers Katin team riders Ian Gottron and Zack Flores chose for a quick strike to mainland Mexico. While those features focused on the two surfers’ unique styles (Flores surfed switch stance for an entire week) and equipment, Surfer's latest “Amp Sessions” is a look at their trip as a whole.
From soft 200-yard peelers to intense tubes and everything in-between, Mexico’s sand-point-covered coastline offers something for every surfer, and often on the same trip and swell. In the week Gottron and Flores spent in Mex, they rode a ton of different equipment, including logs, asymmetrical twin fins, and spent a session or two getting completely drained on a standard shorty. Basically it’s the surf trip we could all use right now.
