Last year my boards were featured, along with Sam Cody’s artwork at Chris’ second ever show. Chris has been a great friend and consultant on all things to do with surf craft.
Well these babies are now in the capable hands of the craftsmen at Channin, up on the hill in Encinitas. On the list are a 9’11” Pig made from a 1954 Velzy/Jacobs template, generously provided by “the genius”, a 9’1″ EDB for a friend in San Francisco, a 7’3 1/2″ hull, a 6’8″ arc tail downrailer, and a 7’7″ Cali fun gun for the same client who ordered the pig. there will be a variety of bells and whistles including but not limited to resin tints, resin panels and comp bands, wooden fins by Willy/Bahne and more. They will all be on view at this years Sacred Craft show, Oct. 10th and 11th.
Hope to see you there.
Just signed up with Scott Bass for the 2009 Sacred Craft Surfboard Expo. The first two years were awesome and I’m really looking forward to this year. I hope to have a fair representation of the models I’ve been developing over the last several years. Hope to see you there.
A great day at San Onofre. The new board is a 7’11” hillbilly hybrid w/ Fins 101 bamboo glass on (currently at the Pod Room).
Well the new HPH for Joe should be ready. I also did a hillbilly hull with a new twist. Instead of belly-single concave-double concave, I kept the concave single on through the tail. After riding my HPH i thought perhaps the single would hold more water for even more drive. It’s got a Fins 101 bamboo hull fin designed by John at Mitch’s North and will feature a pond scum green tint. Should be interesting.
I also still have a couple hillbilly hulls at The Pod Room. Check ‘em out next time you’re in Oceanside.
Heading up onto the hill to Channin’s to do a few new boards. Looking at the possibilities of finless designs. Also perhaps a belly bottom, old school log, just for fun. Who knows? Did a hillbilly hull with a deep single concave last time that I can’t wait to see. Sam Cody called today to dial in the pinline colors. Sweet.
