Things are lining up for shaping in the fall. I am gathering commitments now for shaping slots in September/October. Get with me at email@example.com if you are interested in getting on the list.
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.
The first two HPH’s (hydrodynamic planing hull) were delivered yesterday to Mitch’s North in beautiful Solana Beach. Stop by and check them out.
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.
Changes are inevitable and usually hard, but they are also a new beginning. New things are on the way. Please stay tuned. I’ll update as things settle out.
working at the factory now:
7’2″ HPH speedster (hydrodynamic planing hull/Simmons), done in 6oz volan, with Calvani/Bing keels
9’1″ EDB (every day board), done in 6oz volan with a single box
and for my own enjoyment and education a mildly asymmetric HPH at 6’8″ (plus or minus) with Mitsven keels and a special “fatigued” resin job by Bing/Adam
contact me for availability and prices, or look for them at Surfindian when they’re ready.
