Once again my guy at the factory, risking life and limb, has provided me with a glimpse of an upcoming HPH (9’7 1/2″) with another awesome Bing resin job.
Great trip. Got a lot of tattooing in at Avalon Tattoo, almost finishing two ongoing projects and meeting some nice new folks.
The interview with Takashi and Junko from Blue Magazine in Japan went very well I think. They were very professional and nice folks. I’m looking forward to their interview in an upcoming issue. Unfortunately Blue is not published in English at this time so I’ll be hitting up one of my Japanese friends for translation.
I’ve got boards working up on the hill at Bing (formerly Channin) and at Michael Miller’s. Here’s the line up of new stock on the way:
6’2″ arctail quad downrailer: insane Mexican blanket resin top in fall colors, Fins 101 bamboo canard quads glassed on, resin leash loop.
6’7″ HPH Speedster: cool aqua/smoke stripe over tail, Geppy #1 keels, glass leash loop.
7’6″ hillbilly quad round tail: light olive tint bottom, Geppy/Frye quads glassed on, satin gloss finish.
9’7″ HPH: “beetlejuice” smoke/opaque white jailbreak stripes top and bottom, Geppy #2 keels glassed on, resin leash loop.
Thanks to Larry and Robert for their orders. They’ll be done soon fella’s
Sending positive energy, thoughts and prayers to our friends in Japan. Hope things get better soon.
Spent the day in shaping rooms. First in mine doing a new HPH speedster quad. Then in Matt Calvani’s getting a lesson in hand shaping. It was, in a word, humbling.
Experiencing some technical difficulties with my iPhone and WordPress, so no photos at this time.
Having a great trip so far. Thanks to all the folks who are making it impossible for me to keep up with my surfboard inventory. Stop in at Surfindian and see my latest HPH; 8’2″ with a stunning resin job by Jorge at Bing, up on the hill at the old Channin factory. Looks like a Mexican blanket is laminated into the deck. It is impossible for me to overstate the impact this color job has on first sight. Those guys certainly make me look good.
Doing some fun tattoos also, you all know who you are, and thanks for your patience and support. I’ll try to get some photos up soon.
