ramping up for his yearly foray to costa rica, jesse poyer orders up a mini gun to compliment his fish. we basically took the outline of a 7'4", cut 4 inches of the nose and slightly rounded it. a nice, compact package that will handle size and paddle well.

saturday morning board pick-ups at the factory...always a fun time. long time friend javier fabrega's latest one, a super wide twin keel for summer. 5'8" x 22 1/2" x 2 7/8"..pulled out of a 610 Rhyno for just the right rocker with plenty of foam left to get a clean deck line. rather than glass-ons, we went with the F-3 system which takes either fcs or futures...lots of possibilities.

finally getting up and running at work....working at a slow pace but in there nonetheless.
shaped this one last weekend out of a 1.9# marko...it's meant to bridge the gap between performance shortboard and round nose fish. some guys just can't get past the extra nose width of a fish..it kinda hinders the vertical attack in smaller surf. this board has enough planing width to catch waves like a fish but will turn tighter in the pocket and off the top.
got to come up with a catchy name...
it's 5'7" x 19 1/4" x 2 3/8"...eps/epoxy and weighs in right at 5 lbs.
