here we have an old transitional era 7'0 v bottom surfboard shaped by doug haut and a new version shaped by yours truly with the same outline and rocker but with an evened out foil and slightly mellower rails. finished off with a killer free-lapped resin tint glass job by the talented jamie tuttle.

Some New Outlines...

left - 5'7x19 quad. made one of these for myself and then sold it (what an idiot!) so lets see if i can hold on to this one long enough to give it a ride...
right- 5'8 quad fish outline and 5'6 keel fish outline. these are the outlines that i wind up riding the most. kind of cool so see the curves together.

Papa Surf

Got to take a long lunch today and catch a surf session with my old man. Small waves on the low tide but sunny, glassy, long, and perfect - trading waves on a sandbar all to ourselves. Thanks for the call dad!


The conditions were perfect last night. Crystal clear autumn sky, full moon straight overhead at mid tide with offshore winds and a small groundswell. The inner werewolf was howling to get out. Grab the midnight blue single fin and hit the water. Doing a daytime activity in the light of the moon feels like stealing time that you are not supposed to have. The light gives off shadows as strong as day but familiar places are somehow unfamiliar and motion seems to drag like in a strange dream. Stoked on that solo session. GO SURF!

A Stoked Ride Report from PERU!

Thank you one more time for that badass board!! That board is the best surfboard and kiteboard I've ever ridden I rode it the entire time even on the one waist high day surfing. We got one medium swell that was decreasing right when we got there and then the big swell came in towards the end of our trip. For three days we got solid head, head and a half, and then one day we got occasional double overhead waves! That board held up great in the big waves I have minimal pressure dings even tho I was doing some airs kiting. One day I was riding at low tide and the wave sucked off the rock point break and I nailed my right fin on a dry rock and all it did was have a tiny spider ding no fix needed I was stoked! You defiantly have my vote in the best crossover board made. If you haven't visited Peru put it on the list its a crazy place and has great waves and wind. Thanks for the board I love it.

I dont have a pic of finished board but it was really similar to this one (which also went to Peru on the same trip):

stoked to have some kiters who know what they are doing (unlike me) to order these and put them through the paces.
