Sam's the Man

We are lucky to have Sam Cody doing the airbrushing. He has been spraying boards a long time, and puts a lot of care into the art work. Get a board, get a spray, and you won't be disappointed.

Gabeminizilla 6'2"

This is the second edition of a 24'' wide shortboard for Gabe. (see 12/5/10 for the post of the first board) We pulled the nose and tail in a pinch. Also honed down the rails a little. Gabe is not petite, but wants to shred on something other than a keel fish, so we kept the width, put a middle fin in, and shortboard rails.

Sandbar Session

This is a video of some friends and I surfing a sandbar in 2009. This was a small day in February. The constant larger surf had carved out good banks up and down the beach. Hopefully they will come around this spring. The wood longboard is a 9'8'' hollow airplane wing type construction and weighs 32 pounds. A little heavy on land but in the water is easy to move around. Wood boards have great momentum. In small tubes where the lip breaks on your back, the board pushes right through out onto the shoulder with little interruption. The guys are riding single fin longboards 9'0 and 9'6.'' Jason Buck, orange board, is riding a 9'0" 2 plus one and JoJo is riding a 6'2'' Wegg
