being back

Feels great to be back in the shaping room. Finished this EDB up for Kevin yesterday.  

  

Doing another today that’s headed to Mission Surf when it’s finished by the amazing craftsmen at Bing and Jacobs.  

Thanks to all the folks that make this possible for me.

I’m going to be in the area for the foreseeable future, making occasional trips back to the homestead.

just dropped at birD’s surf shed, 8’5″ EDB garbage picker, and 7’3″ hillbilly hull turbo. Both of these boards were designed with the Cliffs in mind, but will work in a variety of waves. Both feature beautiful tints and “Southbay” panels/rails, the 8’5″‘s rails are fully glossed but finished in satin, the 7’3″ is fully polished.

introducing the 8’5″ EDB “garbage picker”

this is a new EDB variant that I shaped with Sunset Cliffs in mind, particularly North Garbage. Consider the paddle out to the line up. It sure is nice to have something that glides. Once you’re out though, it’s nice to be on something other than a log to take advantage of the quality of the surf. And remember the feeling of hearing “OUTSIDE” and knowing that you have to cover some ground, FAST. I feel this is the perfect combination of traits for the Cliffs. I could envision catching anything from knee high inside sliders in the summer, to outside double overhead bombers on this thing. Can’t wait to try it out. Available soon at Bird’s.
