Nick and his Friendly Fish

November 10, 2014

Hello out there in cyber world!...this is a new custom Friendly Fish for Nick who likes surfing smaller boards in all kinds of waves.   He was chasing something with a bit of volume but didn't want to compromise the performance and when he saw the Friendly Fish....well he was hooked.  The Friendly Fish has a flat deck but the rails are still low and foiled and typical of high performance boards. This gives Nick the advantage of being able to bust out the moves while maintaining the luxury qualities of a fish.... the Fouruster fin configuration for optimum functionality. I custom hand-painted this board for Nick ....something  green and blue and up to you is what he said...This board features...

Ollie.... Futura rounded pin

November 01, 2014

 Hi again, this is Ollie...just stoked to be grabbing his first custom board...the Futura model and as a rounded pintail.    It has a flatter deck with loads of hidden volume but still with the performance foiled rails for manoeuvrability and control through the turns. Relaxed nose rocker and single to triple concave to flat out the tail. This one has been set-up as a five plugger to give Ollie all the options. Custom hand-paint by me. The stats on this one...6'1'' x 191/2" x 21/2" and is 33.7 litres.....Ollie weighs 85-92 kgs....depending on the beer :-)

Futura, 5 fin and rounded pin

October 14, 2014

Hi Again, this is my friend Erwin picking up his custom Futura..... The futura is a great model with the extra meat in the deck for the paddling and wave catching ability. We did a bit of customising to this one for Erwin as he was chasing a bit of thickness and width under the back foot. Usually this model is a square-tail however he had been riding a Tug-deluxe rounded pin before that he was loving so it just had to be a rounded pin also. The five fins cover all the bases and this is in the standard Quad fin/thruster configuration. I custom hand-painted this one for him ...the brief on the design was something blue and...

Rocket Twin fish

October 12, 2014

This would have to be my favourite shape that I keep revisiting year after year......                   While working with Dave Rasta Rastovich back in the early 2000's, he showed up at the factory in Burliegh one day with a board that was a copy of a Spyder Murphy/Martin Potter twin fin from the early 80's, shaped recently by Derrick Hynd. Wanting a replica of it, I kinda modified it where I felt necessary and ended up with a cracker of a board. Interestingly this shape is so good, that anyone who shapes for Dave for a period of time does a version of this board... and understandably so...it's a great design and full credit...
