We’ve all been anticipating the year 2012 and it is finally upon us. Transformations are in place and it feels different already this new age we beckon. As for the surf… it has been pumping!!
I have been riding my 5’6″ agave roundtail twinni and I love it. Shot some photos with Chris Burkhard the other day and finally got the board in an editorial on surfermag.com. These boards are all eco: agave, bio epoxy, redwood fins and hemp.
Ancient Corn Cob just lying in a cave next to Anasazi ruins. Jena and I hiked this Canyon in Utah and saw dozens of ruins built into the rock shelters some of them 1000 feet up a vertical wall. The Four Corners area is Magical to say the least. If I didn’t surf I would probably live there. Plus epic snowboarding.
We made mission down to Nicaragua this past March for a quick trip and to look into the Nicaraguan organic clothing industry as well. Hank, Troll, CJ Drummy, and myself with our filmer and photographer had a good time and enjoyed the local culture.
Riding my 5’6″ Grouch, same board as I’m holding above. Good shortboards and fish shapes are key for Nicaragua with a lot of good but not big waves.
Mingling with the bustle of everyday life in the towns of places like this open your mind. I really enjoy being obscure and anonymous in other countries, its such a diverse world out there its great breathe foreign air and just cruise.
When the coast gets fogged in its always nice to camp out above the fog layer next to the redwood forests. Wake up and make breakfast, do some yoga, and it starts warming up real quick…the mosquitos and biting flies come out and its time to descend back to the beach and cool off ready to get in the water.
The Redwood forest of Central and Northern California is majestic and contains the tallest trees in the world, so much oxygen for the planet is produced here and the living energy of these creatures is part of what makes California the amazing place that it is. The first stand of redwoods is 20 minutes north of our home of Cayucos and we are connected to these trees in more ways than we imagine. The Kaimanu Fin is made from recycled redwood so you can harness the power of the trees in every turn
Hello People, got a new website look, it’s been a few years since updating and a lot has happened for me since then. I spent a year on Kauai, have a son and a new girlfriend and am living on the Central Coast once again. My shaping facility is at the Local Clothes Warehouse in Santa Margarita, just up from San Luis Obispo. The original shaping bay in Cayucos is still active and I spend some time there working, surfing and hanging out with the family. Thanks for the support and interest in my handmade custom surfboards. Please send me a message if interested and check out some of the photos and video of the boards in action. Aloha!
