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...

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!

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!
