Here is the final shaped product, 100% recycled foam and soon to be glassed. 4'1'' tall, 19.5" wide and 2.25 thick with a single concave to vee through the asymmetrical tail. I'll make a single fin with maybe one side bite. It might float me, but most likely a kid will surf it.


This is a chunk of foam I removed from an old 80's board that had seen better days. I salvaged it and sculpted something really nice out of it. It turned out kinda small because I didn't have much to work with, but some little grom is gonna be stoked.

I moved out of my old space and brought everything home. This shack was in my backyard with nothing but tar paper around it. I got some wood, some nails, a saw, a hammer, and some motivation. I can't wait to have a shaping shack in my backyard, no more driving across town. Can't beat walking out your back door and work at any time desired. Now if I could just walk out my back door to a surf break.

I had a super good time hanging out with everybody up in Trinidad for the swap meet. Nothing like talking shop and getting people stoked on what I've been putting my heart into. If you were there and are interested in anything I had to offer please contact me and we'll get started on a custom. Thanks Salty's that was a blast!!

On Saturday the 20th of October Salty's in Trinidad will be hosting a "Board Swap," and they invited me to showcase my surfcraft along side other like minded folk. Starts at 11am and goes throughout the day. I encourage you to stop by and enjoy the view.

Jupiter 1

Experimental design inspired from a dream in which I visited Jupiter. Stringerless blank with one layer of 6 oz. in red, then another in yellow, with a blue hot coat. Upcycled and refoiled sidebites supported by elevated wings, accompanied by a hand foiled baltic birch flex fin.  I can't say it's never been done, but it's the first of it's kind I've ever seen.

10 dollar blank

When I was in Crescent City painting the mural I stopped in at the Noll Surfshop and saw a gnarly blank in the racks with a $10 dollar price tag. First project I started since I got home and I'm pleased with the results, soon to be glassing this week.

mural detail

detail of me surfing in my latest mural on a Campbell brothers Octafish 5fin bonzer.


This is the mural I just finished in Crescent City at the Ocean View Hotel and Suites. I had a fun time working up there, staying in a hotel waking up and surfing everyday before an 8hr workday then surfing at sunset. I know it sounds like alot of hard work....

All sanded and ready to go. The "Sim"pleton split quad as I call it is out of my hands now, so stop in to Flying fish in Eureka and check it out, all hand crafted from foam to fins. Sad to see her go without giving her a go, but she'll make someone very stoked. Whether its small or big this is the go to board, forget having a 5 to 6 board quiver, this is all you need.

Great North

I only live less then an hour from these majestic trees and I went hiking among them for the first time in a while. What a sight to behold! We spent the day hiking around with our mouths agape and our eyes bugging out by all the awesome nature. Headed north and scored some surf and a mural job. Looks like I'll be smelling the fresh air of redwood trees for a while.

Nano Fish

4'11''  board recycle project I did years back from a garage board somebody made in Trinidad by the name of "Dirty". It went from sluggish, wierd, and stiff to super fun, fast, and loose Twinny!

The Simpleton

Yesterday I was outside enjoying the nice weather doing alittle plien air shaping. Mark over at Flying Fish surfshop gave me a blank to work on and I had this shape in mind for a while.  I call it "the Simpleton" and is more or less a Bob Simmons inspiration. I foiled out some quad fins that I'm really happy about I'll post later.


Nothing Like a sunrise session to start the day. It seems that the rest of the day I feel connected and blissfully floating through life.

Complete with lime green resin tint, white resin pin-line, graphite bottom, bonzer concaves, silk inlay, Deck and tail patch 6/6, double leash loop, and some radical hand foiled baltic birch cat-tail fins. Now I won't be under gunned, I know she will fly!

Clean Up

Surf Rider and Hum Baykeeper put together a samoa beach clean up on sunday and we cleaned like you would never believe. Yeah, did you surf today and wonder why your favorite spot was void of trash? Next time join us and earn your waves, it feels so good to help the environment. I found these skis too, soon to be skate decks.

It's an object of beauty, fish cracks and pinlines. 
Summer is comin' I'll shape you a twin fin fish like you wish!

Test Pilot

Took the hand planes out on Sunday with Gretchen and we had a blast. The weather was good, but the waves for body surfing were alright. I need to get a pair of fins so I can get outside for some sets. I got a few though and I could feel the potential. Super fun,  it was like a whole new experience. I ended up using old booty straps to keep them on...upcycle! They didn't work so well as sandals though...

Super Surfer!

For a good time I was riding an old yellow Super Surfer skateboard from the 70's. It was the greatest ride I came to know. One fateful day however the board slipped from my grasps down a storm drain never to be seen again. Years later I found a blue one in a junk shop with original clay wheels. I road that for a while, but it ended up breaking due to it's ancient plastic. I saved it though and made a template stretching it out a bit and took my stack of old skate decks and went to town!
 These boards are workhorses and fit in your backpack too. 
I ride mine everywhere from near and far with ease. 
Available through me or at Flying Fish in Eureka for $35. 
Each one has its own original artwork enjoy!

Bonzer 3

Hand foil baltic birch bonzer side runners I made a while back. I love bonzers and can't wait to make more, there's something pretty awesome about this unique fin setup. I still haven't found a faster board! The bonzer was invented by Malcolm and Duncan Campbell in 1970 and was the first 3 fin concept, predating Simon Anderson's thruster design buy a decade, that's innovation!
