Just dropped off at the Handcrafted glass shop a few of the boards I'll be showing at the Sacred Craft show in Ventura next month.
I decided to do a couple of classics with some wood. The top board will get pinlines before the gloss job.
This 9'8" solid balsa is in the Pat Curren spirit of big wave guns that the early North Shore pioneers were riding.
Also, I did a copy of the 6'10" Castor board that I did for the Shape-off at the last show.
I'm really stoked on how this came out. It just might end up in my personal collection.
Lee wanted a gun for Ocean Beach and came up with this really great color design.
The board was pigmented grey top and bottom, then the color panel was added in the tail.
We also chose to give it a sanded finish so we could retain those crisp edges in the tail and keep the weight down.
This plan shape is quickly becoming one of my most popular small wave designs for either quads or tri fins. Damon wanted an all around board with lots of curve and this fit the bill. He also chose to go with 5 boxes so he could switch his fin set up. The color scheme is cool and seemed appropriate for this time of year.
