GO GO fish for Evan

 Hi there, this is a little video of a GoGo fish I made for Evan in W.A.  It's pretty well a standard GoGo-fish but with a little more volume in the nose as requested by Evan. The deck is quite flat which helps distribute the volume evenly. With the rails low and foiled and a generous curve in the plan shape, the board will feel fresh and sparky throughout the turns and will perform well in a variety of wave conditions.The tape up, cut lap and custom tinted glass job was done by Yuki and I, and the sweet timber fins made by me. The bespoke leggy loop in the tail is a lovely addition to free the deck space of a leg rope plug so you can get your foot right back if you need to. This forward feeling volume board will paddle in early, catch the waves easily and with the lower rails, surf well off the nose.   

 

                       

         ....the dims on the board are 5'7'' x 201/2'' x 25/8'' and about 35 litres....

 ....the bespoke tail loop.....

A tale of two beauties....

After a fantastic weekends event at Saltfest, I unloaded a few new stock boards into the racks at the Sunhouse, my new shaping digs.  Two boards that stood out in particular as really nice ones ...An XU-1 and the other, a Flow.

The XU-1 is the high performance keel fin that I have been frothing on the last few months or so ....it was hand-painted and then resin tinted,  then a one off custom  set of my keels were glassed on....set and forget....I really liked this board.

The other was a Flow...a 6'5'' that I kinda made for myself...hand painted and put a single fin box in it so I can play around with the many fins that I have.....She looked  pretty sweet and I was looking forward to having some fun with it. 

I don't usually  make many stock boards as I really like to make customs for individuals....so any stock boards tend to be super tuned, and mindfully shaped custom boards...but on the rack.....They didn't last long, a total of 4 days, before these boards were in the ocean!!...sad to say ..I didn't really get the chance to photograph them, let alone ride one of them!! but I did manage to get a few dodgy pics on the I-phone before they walked out the door.....Two beautiful boards and two very stoked girls in the line up.
