I think the guy who made this is same guy who did some glassing of a board in my backyard mission st santa cruz maybe like 5 6 or 7 years ago. When he'd go out here only person I've seen who can surf a hull decent. Zack? or Zach had an FJ rips
He got one thing right that it seems like half of the people in SC now don't understand... regardless of how skilled they are at dancing on an aircraft carrier board. If you're on a longboard, "don't surf over there." For that, this kook gets my stamp of approval
As a public school teacher in an area with a lot of different waves, I get months off a year to surf the more random spots. I pretty much don’t tell anyone about where I go or when I go when it’s out of town. If you are dialed, you’re dialed, and if you’re not, you never leave town and that’s...
Felt pretty quick in a cove north of Santa Cruz on a board pendo made for me specifically for that wave. 5’9 fish. Also gotta say I don’t ascribe to the boards that “feel” fast because I don’t feel like spending 1k to go straight
Dudes got a grift no doubt and has burned some legit shapers.. yet has a point about respect for sure.
He surfs well yeah. But.
Pretty funny imo as he was one of the people who popularized longboarders moving towards first peak at Santa Cruz instead of staying in the 2nd zone.. if you live...
I got a davenport made for me last year after riding a friends and seeing the quality of build. I’m pretty picky with what I ride and quick to unload duds... he did a take on a vintage rider that works even better than the original, and is so beautiful it’s the only board that is stored inside...
4k for a cal 20.. dudes high. My parents had a few completely keel off rebuilt in our driveway and ‘raced’ em… I got one in hs I spent 100 bucks on and used as a treehouse in the boatyard on its trailer until the club manager got on my ass. Another thread I guess.
I've smoked more than my fair share of weed. But I think once you get past the age of I dunno 16 it is better suited as a side-dish to life, not the main course. Probably not the focus of the whole dining experience
Yeah talked to him last weekend about some waves he’s been getting. My board is in this batch. It’s my understanding he had a few difficult boards to complete for Japan with abnormal resin work. For just one guy doing it, he’s amazing. And still getting tubes weekly.
