Well it’s been a couple of crazy years, but my post-Covid shaping schedule is starting to come into focus. Last Fall, this Spring, and now this Fall. Settling into a trip at least every six months. I am working towards a set up with a workable three to four trips a year.
Debbie and Eric Gordon, along with the entire crew at Custom Surf Glass and G&S have allowed me to continue putting boards through their factory, alongside so many great labels (G&S of course, Frye, Mitsven, Miller, Pinder, etc). I feel very fortunate to have the continuing opportunity to have my shapes built in such an environment.
Hit me up if you would like to secure a space for my next trip, tentatively lining up for the Spring.
Also, I am going to attempt to break down the design elements of my most popular model lines in future posts, to give a sense of where they came from and where they may be going. So please stop back and have a look occasionally.
I’m very pleased to announce that Mitch’s North will soon have a selection of my HPH/Simmons boards. If I could pick one shop in San Diego to place my boards, it would be Mitch’s. When I started shaping, it was Mitch that supplied everything I needed, no judgement, no hassles, no industry insider shenanigans. I’ll forever be grateful.
So stop in to Mitch’s North and see Loraine, Micah, Tony and the rest of the crew, for a legitimate old school surf shop experience.
One shape down. Sitting in the blue bus having a beer and relaxing. Soon I’ll be reading myself to sleep. Hopefully find some surf in the morning, stop at Mitch’s North for some fins (John always seems to fins cool fins), and back up to the hill for another shape. Today I actually started to shake off the gloom of the rainiest April in recorded weather history of the Ohio river valley. Nothing like a couple good surf sessions with friends to cheer a body up.
