Well it’s been some time since I’ve posted. Life has been busy and there have been many changes. Thankfully, I am still getting to the coast and shaping on a fairly regular basis. I have moved production in to the capable hands of Custom Surf Glass/Gordon and Smith in San Diego. I was fortunate enough to be surf regularly with Larry Gordon when he was still alive and hitting Tourmaline most mornings. Through him, I met his daughter Debbie, and when she and her brother Eric pulled back in all of the licensing world wide, and began the journey of rebuilding G&S into a top notch custom surfboard entity once again, I felt like it would be a good place to be. The fact that my trips to San Diego also include working shifts in Pacific Beach at The King’s Head Tattoo, encouraged me to streamline all of my work into one neighborhood. And having the Canyon available each morning was icing on the cake.

You can find my boards at Bird’s Surf Shed, Mitch’s North, and Greg Surf Company in Osaka.

I’m still tattooing full time (more or less) at Designs by Dana in Cincinnati/Covington when I am in town and also selling cool guitars on Reverb.com at Queen City Guitar.

I’m just going to throw down a mess of images from my recent trips. Thanks for looking, and don’t be afraid to holler at me.

Sk8 Supply is Debbie Gordon’s skateboard supply house. Cool vintage and vintage style goods.


Stoked to have some redfin style boards produced by the originators!

That’s where I want to be.

Tools of the trade. Well, one of them.

Tool of another trade.

Thanks for looking. Have a good one.
