This morning I was told by my informants that the surf was flat. After walking my daughter to school, I thought I'd better drive by the beach to make sure. Good call. No one in sight and this perfect mini sandbar impersonating Johnson's Cove at Noosa. I set the camera on the beach, press record, and went surfing. Note how the Bluegill attains speed with no need for pumping action.

I put together these fins for two Model A's, Tom Wegener Model, I shaped for Jacob's Surfboards. I think the small brand looks cool.

Getting Paulownia is very difficult and expensive, and the story behind this batch is customs difficulties, permits, storage fees, shipping costs, and the cost of the lumber itself. Luckily, I have developed good relationships with the lumber yards from whom I purchase it from. When looking for Paulownia, I suggest purchasing it from me. It will save you a lot of time, and headaches. I am happy to sell when I have a surplus. Usually distributors are not interested in shipping a small amount of wood. I usually sell it in a blank, Up to 7' around 17.5 inches wide by 7/8'' thick.

This alaia is a 6'10'' Stuth and going to Sean. He has been working on the "Hydrodynamica" movie and has been motivated to get into the slide.

I drove by the beach last night and the waves looked really fun, unfortunately I had obligations, and was not able to paddle out. With a little luck, I thaught,the surf could be fun again tomorrow evening. It was. This special to us because The Avenues in Redondo are rarely good, especially in the evening, But a combo swell and the rare mellowing of the wind, it can be the place to be. Rosa rode her 8'6'' Green Flash and I rode my latest favorite board, the 8' Bluegill.

This is my Old faithful 7'6''Anchovy design, wich used to be 7'8'' but the nose needed a little work after a memorable ride at San O' which ended in a crash tube on the cobblestones. This board is a couple of years old and rides the same way it did as when it was new. No deck delamination or material breakdown.
