attention hog

seems like my bizarre taste in surf craft, vehicles etc. lends its self to endless explanation out and about...whether its the bike, samurai or this little finless wonder in this photo. here I am trying to explain why having fluted rails is so special like I know what I am talking about... ha hah photo by bobby kulisek

Call me a sissy...

Since I'm nursing a sprained wrist and skinned elbows, I've been thinking alot about modifying my bike. I loved giant sissy bars as a kid. Yesterday I mocked up something for my dad to fabricate for my ride. Material skavenged from an old aquarium stand...makes me want to change the handlebars now so thats how this stuff goes

Motorcycle maintence

Last night, I hung with Trout &Co. to change out the bars on this sweet 883...
pretty original crew of dudes, this bike is running a full-on off road tire on the front...everything seemed to be going well until I stepped outside and feel into a pile of old iron, skinned up,bruised and a busted hand I cruised home with my tail between my legs

New Finless board by Brian Wynn

I just picked this up the other day and its awesome! eps construction, stringerless and glassed super light. A waaay more refined version of the blue foam boards I was riding and hopefully considerably more durable. There's a whole lot going on here with beveled down rails in the nose and step down tail rails. There are crazy channels in the bottom with a giant double concave running nose to tail. Really fast little board and it holds the line really well. I gotta really try to spin it out which I do but i wanted something a little more surfable
