Morning Surfriders, This one brings back memories, mat riding was the first exposure to surfriding for a lot of us. These guys are flat out cooking, and drawing some awesome lines. In this day of outrageous travel and board charges stuff a mat and fins in a backpack , buy a bargain ticket and surf your ass off. Kick back and enjoy , Zog

Where's Trey?

The Pipe Firing!!!


Sarah running down Kooks

Must be time to go

Evening Surfriders , Another awesome January day[almost 70 and sunny] and surf session. I totally freaked out and surfed from 1 to 6 and now can't use my arms or shoulders . I've also eaten everything in house and dogs are looking pretty tastey about now. Started out a little windy , but did it clean up and get fun. Didn't take many shots , to busy enjoying my new creation as she was awesome in smoking lines. Have a good weekend , Zog

Great Sesh

Yo Surfriders , Had a great session on the new board this morning , 2.5 hours of fun stomach

high peelers with some good wind a no one out .Board worked great , a lot looser that I thought it would be. They're right , riding your own creation is pure stoke. Here is a picture of Tomo with one of his new creations. Interesting how many different board sports his craft has taken influence from . Even the King Kelly Slater has a lot of interest in Tomo's ideas. Anything Goes , Carve Hard, Zog

It Works

Went out in some super weak knee to thigh micro peelers at Pelican Watch with Danial. The new creation was easy to get going in the dribble and super loose .Great wave catcher and wants to pump on down the line. Can't wait for some push, Holy crap it's cold today, Zog

Leftovers Tailpad

Had some leftover deck pad from my PSH . Had just enough to fashion a little tailpad for my new stick. Now we just need some surf . Added bonus didn't have to buy some overpriced pad with stupid corporate logo / $ sign on it. Stick it to the man !!! Zog

Enter the Superstar

Happy New Year Surfriders , She's done. From raw blank to finished board , The Short Bus Superstar is back at the house . Feels pretty bringing the first board I 've ever designed , shaped, and painted home . A big thanx to Dimitri Talbert for his shaping cave and advise , and Jimmy Keith for the killer glass job and pinline. As before no CAD design , CNC machining , went old school with planer , shading blocks , tons of measuring and tried to to get her as symmetrical as possible with my old blurry eyes. Can't wait to see how she rides . Pray for Surf , Zog
