I'm surprised nobody has jumped on this. Maybe folks haven't had the chance to see his work yet. I had Joe shape me one of his eggs when he was over here on our coast last year. Have been stoked on it since day one. A great all around shape for our waves.
Good luck with the sale.
Seeing a lot of solid recommendations for you so far. My two cents would be to recommend you trying a simple standard single fin egg in the 8' range. You have a heap of talented shapers near you that should get you onto something that will meet your needs.
I'm a few pounds lighter but 10yrs...
Many thanks Tom.
Apparently there are several boards in southern NC that are destined for NY. Working with a few jammers to get them, and mine, all up to MD and then I'll try to get them towards NY.
Will be in touch if plans change.
My thanks again,
Went to one years ago here in NJ. Ian Zamora and several other board builders where in attendance. Although the surf wasn't quite perfect, it was a great day of sharing boards and talking board designs.
Started wearing a 4/3 Needs Essentials - back zip 2 yrs ago and have no complaints. Wore it deep into our winter here last year with good results. I'm an XL and it sizes the same as most companies. Price was fair in my opinion. Feels good until the 40 degree water and freezing air temps show up.
You could try Waterboyz in Pensacola. They sell boards under their shop label. No idea where they're shaped though.
I left town in 84' and only get back every couple of years. Innerlight out past the airport had a rack of epoxy imports my last visit. Nothing hand made. More clothes store than...
I can still remember riding my bike up to Innerlight on 9th Avenue and ordering my first custom. (grass mowing & leaf raking $$$) Probably hit the Krispy Kreme to celebrate after. lol
Good old days. : )
