Welcome to the 3rd generation of Cutback.com! This site has been
revised for the new year but it is still New
England surfing, snowboarding, skating and random things that
we decide should be on Cutback.com, because its our show dammit!
For those of you that are new to the site, Cutback.com has a large
section of surf/snow/skate pictures and it is growing, if you have
any shots of yourself send em on in and we'll try and post them
out here on Cutback.com for you, think of the possibilities...fame,
fortune, autograph sessions and book deals. Now for those of you
out there who came to Cutback.com hoping to find some information
on learning to surf, check out this passage written by Chris
We plan to keep Cutback fresh with new content for the 2001 hurricane
season so bookmark this page with your other surf/sk8/snow links
"Ctrl-D". The snowboarding season was a little lame this year with
the far from consistent snowfalls we received in Vermont. There
were some good days here and there, but not not the epic snow tales
one would usually get from Stowe. We will be posting some more photos
from this past season and if you have some fat grinds that you want
to share with the world just send them to the
Spend Money :
EBAY - Here is a place to check out if you

People sell a lot of crap on there but every now and again you can
get into the bidding war on some vintage surfboards and surf related
items. I must warn you that sometimes you may actually bid against
the owner as he/she tries to squeeze you for extra dough, but you
may get a Greg Noll for a song too.

Annual Old Timers Longboard Contest: 2000
Sunday August 27 2000, The Annual Old Timers Longboard
Contest will be held at Whitecrest Beach in Wellfleet MA. Get
those old logs ready to go!! For more info call (508) 255 2662
between 10am and 5pm or simply swing on in to Jaspers
Surf Shop afer this weekend (the 19th and 20th) for signups
and all that. (See Below for Description)
What exactly is "The Old
Timers" all about you ask?
Okay, first, it isn't a 'real competition', it's
a good time masquerading as a contest. Contests are jokes, that
serve only to blow up some twerp's ego. This is more an old timer's
reunion, party and a place for old board collectors to drool at
each other. The oldtimer's is on Sunday, the 27th at White Crest
Beach in Wellfleet, starting around 4:30 in the afternoon. Signups
are at Jasper's Surf Shop in North Eastham only, and you can't
sign up by mail or by phone. The entry is $20, in cash, no credit
cards, per person. $25 if you want a long sleeve tee shirt. You
get entered into the thing, a tee shirt, and you get to go to
the party afterwards, at Jimmy D's in North Eastham. You can also
buy just a teeshirt, or just pay at the door to get into the party.
There are trophies, cheezy things really. Several age categories:
21-30, 30-40, 40-50, women's, lifeguards, female lifeguards, etc.
The rules, as I understand them: You have to be over 21
years old. Old, long boards only. No wetsuits or leashes.
(yeah, that's right. It's irresponsible and dangerous. Well, that
wasn't my idea: watch out for old longboards, they can hurt a
lot.) If you have ever won before, you won't win again. It's somebody
else's turn. Don't take it seriously: the judges are drunk anyways.
The waves are never too small. They may be too big, in which case
the thing is postponed. Other things Bring your own booze to the
beach..it's sunday, so plan ahead. No glass bottles please. Clean
up after yourself and others. That way, it can go on again next
year. Get a bite to eat between the beach and the party. There
are no bathrooms on the beach. It gets cold down there too. Okay?
Have fun. - The Gospel According to Doc
Costa Rica :
Heading to Costa Rica? Have a look
at the new section posted here
on cutback.com. You really need to get "The Surfers Guide
to Costa Rica" by Mike Parise. But if you are too cheap,
I have jotted down a few things that may/maynot be helpful to
Miscellaneous Things :
If you are heading down to the Cape and the islands to surf before
then, be sure to stop by
The Wellfleet Beachcomber. Plenty of sun, waves, booze and
music for you to enjoy at this landmark establishment. If you
do go, make sure to hook yourself up with one of their tasty Frozen
If you are chasing a swell up the coast and cape cod is on the
list and like to "rough" it. We suggest camping at either
Campground or Maurices
(both near surf). I would choose Paines though, just because they
allow camp fires and they have wood you can purchase by the bundle.
If you are headed out to the Islands, you will want to check out
Schedule from Woods Hole and Hyannis or the Nantucket
Schedule from Hyannis. Call ahead if you plan on bringing
your ride over. Also call for pricing on bringing your boards
with you, I think they bill it out as a windsurfer. There is another
ferry that leaves from Falmouth
and goes to Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard but it does not carry cars.
On this Ferry it will cost you $20 each way with your surfboard.
Oh and one more thang for ye, before you jump in your ride with
all your boards strapped to the roof you may want to take a peek
at the traffic cams located at the
Bourne Bridge and Sagamore
Bridge. When we hit the Cape on the weekends during the summer
we recommend leaving super early or super late. The traffic down
there can be a nightmare with the rotaries in place.
