This past weekends secret sliders...

So I was asked what I rode this past swell and here are the culprits. First up is a single fin pintail board that was modeled after a board Skip cut out for me for my 2000 Indo trip. Jeff McCallum bought me this blank for my B-Day in 2005 and it was shaped in February of 2006. I hadn't really caught to many waves on it prior to this weekend but I needed a board that would bleed speed off the bottom to set up for the barrell section of this wave and it just worked perfect for that purpose.

7'2 Single Fin Pin

Multi color resin spear by the Master Larry Crow whose impeccable craftsmenship helped make Chris Chrsitenson popluar with all of those crazy resin comp bands and resin panels he created for him back in the day. I've known Larry a long, long time and he actually did a multi color spear on the second board I ever shaped (a 5'9 Rocket Fish Twin circa 1999). I'm sooo stoked to be working with Larry again directly full time, now that Michael Miller is my glass master. Such a great crew to be apart of.

6'4 Swallow Tail Tri

This was a board I shaped back in 2005 as a demo for Richard Kenvin and the Swift Movement as a potential model at that time. Extremely humbled to even have the chance to build a board for the Swift Movement, being so young and new to the game. The few models I built for Swift and their clients came from the Skosh Model and Rocket Fish line, but never the less an honor to be involved at such a young age. This board actually was the first board I built start to finish, shaped, glassed and sanded. Thanks to Jeff McCallum for helping me with the lamination and fins and thanks to Christenson for the space, time and shaping room.

San O Essentials!

Food Water and killer Music!


There is just something about this photo I really like and how it accentuates the foil and rocker of this 7'2 Long Fish Simmons Quad. I heard this guy caught a few at the 'Bu post surf binge weekend. Shredda styleeee!

More loving from Saturday

Check these out..

Happy Saturday everybody.

Here are a few shots from a break in the neighborhood from Saturday. I heard a Hobgood was out a few breaks to the north. But here are a few teasers until our next decent sized south, coming in April 2012. Til then...

Agreed 2

But replace Jetty, with Pier or any decent surf spot and there you have it. Pretty much sums it up.

Ebb and Flow

Was up in the Cardiff region today yet again on another surf mission with grom Lucas and we called up Ando to see if he could surf. Unfortunately it was a little to early in the day for him, but he told us of his new venture he has going on over at the Ebb and Flow shop. Looks like Ando has his own installation there for a while and if things go right, a long while. Its a pretty cool place with an awesome view. All the Ando stuff you could ever imagine plus a few, finely tuned gifts from other artists in the way of fins and music and skateboards and books and you name it! A full on Andoland actualized into a sweet shop right in the heart of Cardiff. Its across from Patagonia and behind the 7-11. Drop in anytime. I believe the big event night will be August 7th. So pen it in your electonic devices and make sure you are there!

Custom 9'6 HP2 for Bill Gentle in NYC

Apologies for the bad lighting, but I was solo and this board is too pretty to put against a wall, especially with wind blowing. Michael and I both agreed this was the prettiest longboard of mine yet to come through the shop this year. Stoked!

6'9 Long Fish Keel for Tyler in NYC!!!!

So after my last trip to New York in May for the Fish Fry, a lot of interest came about again of the Long Fish Keel. So my good friend Tyler who owns and runs Sundown Surf in Long Beach ordered himself up a personal. Hope you like!
