Surfcraft Cooperative 7'2'' Bio Board

This is the Cyrus Model. Low rocker and nice volume. One could ride in about any wave condition. I used a recycled foam blank, Bio resin and put on a veneer deck. Please excuse the distance of the footage. The camera is stationary on the beach.

Great Waves on the Great Lakes

Ryan Gerard, proprietor of Third Coast Surf Shop, sent me pictures from the swell that hit Lake Michigan a couple of weeks ago. The wave buoy in the middle of the lake read 23'. Pretty big especially for a lake. This spot is in front of casino in Indiana, and is in a protected bay, which kept the winds under control. Ryan is riding a 6'2'' Bluegill. One of the recycled foam, bio resin types.

The Cyrus Model

A 7'2'' performance egg made with recycled foam, US grown plantation wood, Organic Entropy resin. The Surfcraft Cooperative is a collaboration with Cyrus Sutton,, myself, and other participants to make better surf products influenced more by stoke than what is pushed by the larger surf companies.

Scrappy fin making.

This evening, Mike and I glued up some off-cuts from the veneer boards. When I put fins on boards, I like to experiment with templates, sizes etc. Fiberglass fins can get expensive, especially if you want to try a bunch of templates. Now I need to figure a way to attach these wooden fins without glassing them in.

The Pizzaz is in the Rail

I left the last 7'6'' in Maine. We really liked that board, so I made a new one. This is recycled foam, wood veneer, and super sap resin. This construction creates a lot of inertia and spring. It is loose and has the drive of a longer board.
