Let's make the colorado /landlocked kids with good mountains jealous (Sorry midwest, you don't have oceans or good mountains, so lol). I know there's other surfers here. Post quivers, photos, whatever. That Bali contest is coming up, and it's live streamed.
I'll start. I ride these
The small, striped one is my most recent creation, 5'4"x20.75x2.3" ish. Super fast, wide tailed, super fun for summer. Twin and trailer, cause I like twins, but figured such a wide tail might need some help. The other was my first shape, and the blue one is a 6'4"x22"x3" by a local shaper out of asbury park. It's a missile. But I currently suck at surfing large boards, cause I'm very used to skateboarding and I'm a small person. I even have to concentrate to make the 5'4" turn sharp; it's still slower than a skateboard. But I got my backside turns back. And my break rarely produces a viable left, and I'm goofy, so you know how that goes. Backside rides all day.
I think noseriding is the coolest thing ever, but both riding and shaping a 9' board are intimidating. Eventually... I also shoot photos, although it's hard to watch your friends get great waves through a finder sometimes. So I shoot a lot of the stuff around surfing.
And there's more on my flickr. Summer is about to start. Time to ditch the boots and fullsuits and make turns around all the noobs. I hope it's nice on the 21st, cause I plan on making the longest day of the year a great day of surfing, followed by skating this bowl near my house. Or surfing till sunset, hard to decide.
