Joe Hall, part time school teacher, part time lead singer of The Mandalas, also keeper of SurferJoe blog and wave slider. Joe enjoys a number of rides, ranging from this 10 foot valla wooden log hand crafted by Mr Paul Joske, a couple of long boards, a hand full of fishes, single fin, stubbie, and a short board thruster for the days he would like to fit back into the main stream society of surfing. He loves to try all different types of lines and rides, I really enjoy watching Joe surf, he has a real fluid style and is always stoked no matter what the waves are doing.

What can i say, the girl has the skills to pay the bills!!
Kathrine Hall is a good friend of mine, she has helped me out with my "shaped by" decals that i use on my boards. I really enjoy seeing her work, its always fresh, creative and diverse. Apart from being a lady slider, she's fun to hang out with, wife to my good mate Joe and is a crazy talented artist, she is also the killer drummer in the MANDALAS and also is the expecting mother to Boris, is there anything she can't do?? Take a stroll in her blog DRAWN-LINES and check out her the other amazing drawings.

Its funny when your young you val not to grow up like your parents, you see all the things they do and you say to yourself "i wont do that"....well the older i get the more like them i become, i use to take after my mum when i was growing up, she always made sure that me and my brother Dan never went without and gave us lots of love and care, but now im in my 30's and im so like my dad its not funny! when im working, surfing and just in the day to day things i see him more and more in me now. i love my parents and i am happy to be turning into a G-REG(my dad) hes a wise, gentle, cruzie, happy with his own company, giving, never asking for anything, loving man.

Hawaii 11

On our way back from San Fran we stopped in at hawaii for 7 nights, best part of the trip!!. This was our first time there and we just loved it, the weather, surf, beaches, food, shopping, the people, everything about the place, im having withdrawals just talking about it now.


This little bit of candy is for the wife Shelly, she's had the same board for awhile now so it was nice to make her something alittle bigger than her 8'6, she will now be running a very girly but tough 9'2 log with a glass on pivot ply fin, the pink trans tint come out nice and bright, the colour also changes in different light, popped some blk and wht stripes on the nose just to toughen it up just alittle, i really hope she lets me ride it.

Please take look at Toms other work, they are creative and inspiring.

love a sweet V

i love this photo of the tail of a 9'4 that i shaped in dec last year.


'four fin fezza' is a 5'11 quad fish, its got a narrower nose that i took from a friends board which was a old bear twin fin, then the back end is off a wagner fish with a really shallow tail, its a bit more mod in a quad.
