    Liddle pathfinder

    I have a 10'ter but havent found its spot yet. I agree with Shady that not below waist and not a lot above head high. Best session that I have had was probably at hollow low tide Perran on fast and long shoulder high peelers. It generates a lot of speed if there is a push and needs room to turn...

    Russel Hughes must have been the inspiration for Brian’s Ant. The Ant, Sos and in some ways the L-Spoon are related designs: they have similar rocker, rail and bottom but from what I know the Ant has extra subtle stuff planted into it! Cool to compare these with Hughes’ highly refined...

    Andreini Stoke

    I’ll try, The epoxy is weightless, the poly is based on Marc’s favourite Vaqs from the 70’s so it’s thicker and quite heavy. They both fly on a clean wave of course but the epoxy loves a lined up peeler: it is fast and so light that it seems to disappear underfoot! the poly is a joy to push into...

    Andreini Stoke

    Shed Sledz's film is cool. I really enjoyed seeing the old board glide and Marc shaping the new one. It seems right to celebrate Marc's work and good to give thanks for his generosity and expertise. Clearly the boards come alive on a good wave but it also takes time to dial them in and surf...

    Bummed on Vaquero

    No need to feel bummed. Greg Liddle wrote this piece to explain what we should expect from riding a ‘hull’ and where we should seek to ride one 10 years ago in response to peoples’ dissatisfaction with his own designs at that time. Marc’s boards share many formal characteristics with Liddle’s...
