Hydro Quadrofinia

Scott is the quadster. He just added two more to his quiver to make it 4 or 5 quads.
Today he is christening the new 6'6. As I write this he is hopefully grinning and schredding. 
He will come back later to take home the 7'10 and give me his 6'6 report.

Cooking one up for the Chef

The Chef wanted fish on his menu so he ordered up a 5'10. He even picked up a couple of blanks from US Blanks.
Multicolored ones at that. First time for me. Wow, it was like I was wearing  weird sunglasses after I skinned his blank. After decades of pure white, my room was covered in some sort of rainbow confetti. I'm now motivated to hook up the vacuum system I bought long ago.
All in all it went well and looks cool. Going with double foiled plywood keels which I need to cut out soon.
Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I can ring the bell to let Chef know that his order is up.

Be happy to cook you up one if you like the taste of high speed fish. contact me at

My Favorite Place

Where do you go for peace and quite? The place that you feel most comfortable in?

For me (besides being in the company of my wife) it is my shaping room. It has no windows, was built as soundproof as I could get it at the time, the AC can get it down into the 60's if need be. It has gone from having a radio, to a radio/tape player to a walkman to a portable CD player to a multi changer CD player and finally I can't imagine anything better than it being wired to play my IPOD.

Cool air, cool tunes and cut off from the outside world. My kind of place!

Add to that an activity that has brought me untold pleasures for over 30 years, the shaping of a wave riding implement for current and future friends.

Easily I have found my favorite place!
