Everybody be asking...

What the hell is an A-Hull?  :smt102

Who are they?  :scratch:

What do they do?  :smt066

Why are they always having so much fun?  :beer2 :fishing1 :headbang:

This thread will provide a brief history and overview of the A-Hulls and their accomplishments.

Though we were a group of good friends long before, we found our name the A-HULLS as a result of creating a team for GS4 in 2010.

We are a group of fun loving, big hearted fish slayers from Santa Cruz and Monterey, and Sonoma Counties. The original cast of characters has changed slightly over the years, but the vibe never has.

Fish hard, dive hard, play hard, help out others in need.

Here is the original A-Hulls vid created by AlsHobieOutback in preparation for GS4.



Since 2010 the A-Hulls have organized the annual Pay It Forward Paddles/Potlucks/Raffles to help out our brothers battling Cancer. This is the accomplishment that we are most proud of.

Here is a summary of the A-Hulls accomplishments since 2010...and this isn't counting all the badass sh*t we do on the regular (awesome hook ups, helping each other and the community out in times of need, frying all kinds of goodness on the beach, face painting kids at tournaments, slaying monster fish and octopus left and right, Team in Training runs and fundraisers, badass videos and pics all the time etc).
