The shot...

The Surfer's Journal

It's always been a lingering dream of mine to get a surf photo in maybe the most respected surf magazine in print. My good friend Bob Kulisek not only got a shot of me in there, but also a really cool article. I can't find the portrait but will post up the surf shot.

Van troubles

The story of my life seems to always involve van problems. I was born and raised a van guy and today my recently repaired van snapped a steering rod that was connected to the ball joint. Luckily I drive slow and conservative. So I've been thinking alot about new wheels. Practical logic says new but I'd like something with style. Here's my second delivery van treated as if were one of those Honda yuppie trucks. I love this thing, might pull the trigger...

Love the signature

I love it when the shaper puts my name on the board, really personal. It's the knowing that the board was crafted with you in mind. The color is really unique merlot with candy apple green which is really an interesting metaphor for me. I'm always projecting merlot but deep down inside I'm all apple Boone's farm...

I got a new board today...with perfect 3 foot peelers to try
it out too. It was shaped and glassed by Zephaniah Carrigg
from Ventucky, CA. He's a really talented shaper, glasser and has a great eye for color.

Will Tucker

So I stopped by to see my friend Will Tucker the other day.
Will has been making surfboards for quite a while
now, his specialty being classic styled surfboards. Not in any
way retro but in a classic, craftsman type way which I thouroughly
appreciate. So here he is cutting out this board
for me and I am pumped. More pictures of its progress
to follow. If you've never seen a board shaped it's a very
impressive thing and deeply personal as well.
Will's thing is kinda like my thing, a one man operation. That way
you can completely control the quality and finished product so well.

out with the old in with the new

So I ended the old website. It never really blew my hair back. Too little flexibility and too many fees so its over. I always felt kinda boxed in with content, where I was going with the business, surfing and my fascination with wheels. Hopefully this platform will allow me to go where I want to go and shape the business alot more like me.
Coffee is still available by email. No more credit cards, paypal or any other wiring services etc. I'll take a personal check, money order or a wad of cash wrapped in a rubber band. I am trying to keep it a bit more simple and hope it works for everyone. So feel free to shoot me an email and i'll get you out some coffee with an invoice.
happy brewing
