from paper to cloth

alway love playing with colours and working out tints for board, then seeing them come together when the board is finished.

Saturday, October 23, 2010


been poping in in lays of 4oz in the tails and decks, apart from looking really cool, they keep the board light and strong.

the white yetti

iv been making all my boards out of quite large blanks which require alot of planning, by the end i look like a yetti and there is a good inch of planing foam on the floor, it is nice to transform a big block of foam to a profiled sliding machine.

floating friends

i wish i could be a fish, i love the floating feeling under water, so nice and relaxing.

been really busy the last couple of weeks, iv had 6 boards on the go, thats alot for me, but its been nice to spend some time in the shed. Above is a fresh 9'4 log shaped for dave, nice 50/50 rails, should be fun to ride.

Its an art to write the dimensions on a freshly shaped board, you dont want to stuff it up and you want it to look natural and neat, after 40 years of shaping. Thats how its done.

taking the time to learn

I love going up to my dads shed and spending time just hanging out and watching, i learn so much. I ask alot of questions and get alot of answers that helps me with my boards.

pauly's quad

Pauly, a good friend of mine has been waiting for this board for the last few months now, im glad to say that it is good to go, 6'0 quad its the same shape as the 2x2 quad that i made for myself, so i hope he has many killa surfs on it.

Its amazing how that something so simple such as a templet is the main tool that you need to shape a board, its abit of ply wood but has the most important information.

single fins

I find it amazing that todays boards, you know the 6'1 thruster, will they look this amazing when there old and hidding out in someones shed, will we never hold onto and try and find and hunt down gems like we do with the 30-40 year old boards.

headed up north

About 2 months ago joe, jason and i packed up joes van and headed up the coast for a few days. The swell was small and the wind was blowing SW, so off to crescent heads we went. We left early on a thursday morning and arrived there at lunch, the swell was around 2-3 feet and just perfect.

5'6 STUBBY the new love of my life!!

after buying the best surf movie eva, ONE CALIFORNIA DAY, and after seeing some stubbys and bonzas being ridden, inspired me to try something new, this was the first one of the stubbys that i have made, such a fun board to ride, very different to anything i have tried before. This board is now the main board that i ride and I'm looking forward to making more. The stubby rides high and tight in the pocket of the wave, it love little sucky swells.

old skool

this crazy decal is one of my fathers old ones, a good mate in adelaide picked this board up from a second hand sale, $50 later go himself a killer piece of history, the board is a single fin pin tail and still in good nik.

shape by decals

My good friend Kathrine Hall has come up with some "shape by" decals for me, so keep an eye out and thanks kath, killer job.


this is my brother's board i made for him, its a 6'0 keel fish, the templet is off a Wagner fish that a friend had. About 4 or 5 years ago i was introduced to fish's on a small summer day, i could not belive the speed you could generate on a small wave and also how easy the paddle was. Since that day iv never looked back, i think in the past 4 year's iv ridden a thruster once.
