avalon tattoo and mast surfboards

IMG_0328The current crew.

I have had the great pleasure of working at Avalon Tattoo in Pacific Beach for the past eighteen years. During that time I have made my home both here and Cincinnati where I work at Designs by Dana. The beauty of this setup is that I get to shape the surfboards I love as opposed to the surfboards I think will sell. In effect, this has allowed me to develop my model lines as I pleased. I am proud of the result and very gratified at the number of people that enjoy my shapes and the style of surfing that they encourage. I’ve always said when it comes to surfing styles, some people like to waltz, some people like to slam dance. I believe my shapes foster a style somewhere in between, a style dictated by finding the sweet spot on each wave and letting the wave do the work for you. Tuning in, so to speak, with the natural energy on tap in each wave.

Please look for my boards at Bird’s Surf Shed, Mission Surf, and Mitch’s North.

It’s not easy to describe the satisfaction, the feeling of community at your local break to friends and family that have never experienced anything quite like it. It is one of the great priveledges and pleasures of life.

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.
