    sell a few order a few the on going saga. More and more anything other than a log or mid length I go with jeff at Nine lights he’s such a pleasure to deal with.

    First one up is a 6’4 Kidmanesque dreamboard with a bit more tail rocker and deeper channels based on feed back from Kirk at foam and function and RT . I was going to get a Kidman but the reality is it would take a lot of legistics time and money as he seems to be pricing himself out of shaping. It’ll be openface constructed and finished in a light aqua tint.

    Second up is Jeff’s asymmetrical mini Simmons. 5’4 true Simmons swallow on the toe side with a slightly side cut fish template on the heal side with twinzer setup. Same open face stringerless balsa deck construction. This one will be finished in a sanded opaque white tint over everything fins and all.

    D48F76FC-C1A1-4D2B-8126-D3A2E076BE24.png Vacuumed and glued together should be a fun board for the bolsa slop.im not one for funky stuff but Jeff’s personal asym is just too cool. And he raves about it. Just a bit more versatile. Check out his brothers 11’6 glider on the left

    Nice! Recently enjoyed a few days in that Bolsa slop you spoke of. Loved the aroma of "bloated dead seal on the beach" for a few sessions. Not. ;) Had good fortune to try out one of Jeff's new fins I do believe. Very nice quality.
    Enjoy your new sleds!
