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.
Stevie, Tourmaline Canyon, taking a moment. On his way to the Point.
Printing a new series of block print tee’s. Each shirt is hand printed, one at a time, one of a kind, on quality 100% cotton tees. All blocks are cut by me and printed by myself and my lovely wife Karen. If you’d like one for Christmas, hit me up and I can send images of what I have available. $30 to your door (in the US).
Met Justin tonight at the Bing one year shop anniversary party. Nice kid, cool shirts.
Coming soon to Bird’s Surf Shed, the lima bean, a short, extra curvy HPH variant for generating speed on those small mushy days we all love so much.
The guys up on the hill are really moving these along. Look for them at Mitch’s North soon. HPH’s (hydrodynamic planing hull/Simmons) in 5’6″ clear, 5’10” light olive, and 6’4″ caramel.
Three more HPH’s (hydrodynamic planing hull. aka Simmons, the thumb, stub platter, unfish twinny) headed for Mitch’s North as soon as they’re finished. Check out the ones already there and ask Mitch’s bitchin’ staff about them.

Heading west next soon. I’ve got a lot of shaping to do (for me anyway). Some for Japan, one for Puerto Rico, and some for SD. Tattooing some groovy people at Avalon Tattoo as well. Gonna be busy!
Well, another trip is on the books and after a nice trip to the high desert and a day at Avalon Tattoo hurting people, I finally had time to do three stock boards. They’re going through right now up on the hill at Bing.
