Surf Sister came by to pick up a 7'6'' Bluegill. Having never used an alaia, most Bluegillers have, Mary will have to learn the slides and turns and adjust to warp speed through sections on the Blugill. Not a problem, the extra float should be an advantage. Check out her blog and follow her progress. http://surfandthefury.blogspot.com/
Mike Beckwith and Gabe Whorely also came by to work on some new boards. Mike is a early fan of alaias and helped me develop the Bluegills. After some time and a few Pacifico's we came up with this one. Gabe and I have been working on the Gabezilla model for a couple of years now. It is a noserider, Gabe is known for noseriding and hanging 11, his belly. This design is great because it feels faster than most noseriders, and fits into the pocket good, or even a little behind the curl.
