Coming to Surfindian:
7’2″HPH speedster: (mid-Simmons), 6oz volan, wooden keels
7’7″ hillbilly gentleman: (hull) a milder version of my hillbilly hull in 6 oz volan
7’10″egg: a sleek refined San Diego egg in 6 oz volan
Okay, so today I spent at the Bing factory (formerly Channin’s) up on the hill in Encinitas shaping. To show for it I have an 8’2″ EDB winter round pin and a 7’1″ HPH speedster. Both will be finished in 6oz. volan and are up for grabs. Tomorrow I have a US Blanks 8’0″H to shape. Hmm. What sounds fun?
Was able to finally put a face to the name. Met Joaquin from France and his friends at Surfindian today. They purchased a couple of my boards a year or so back and sent a comment that they were enjoying them. It’s always gratifying to realize the happiness that surfing engenders and that I can have a small part in making it happen.
This one is for the Paducah kid, you know who you are (Rich) (not you angry Rich). It’s a hybrid of a full Malibu hull with some concave running out the back for San Diego (as in not perfect point breaks). The rails are as knifey as it gets and it is oh so foiled. Coming soon to Surfindian, unless someone claims it first.
Thanks John for the kind words and amazing woodwork. And thank you holly for the lovely photos.
