Some Fun New Crap From The Room

I'm calling this the SYT. It's a Quigg hotcurl template, hulled and foiled into
a mini carver and glider. It should have plenty of both, so it's set up with a real comfy rocker. Think small longboard, rather than big hull. This one is 8'6, 16 1/2 x 21 5/8 x 16, 2 7/8 thick. A bit o' spoon, and a softer hull rail for ease of steering and a more neutral feel.

A 9'4 SOS. This one is Brooklyn bound.

A skinnier Dirty Sanchez. Ramped hull to concave tail, a bit more pivotal tail rail to coordinate with the twin fin. 5'9, 18 1/4 x 22 x 18. I know the hull part works; this guy carries a bit more curve into the tail
to give it a bit fishier aspect. No rocker mods- if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

9'4'' SOS-PHD

This ones a is a copy of my best longboard ever, its got a sweet spot about foot and a half back from the nose , when you hit that spot you better get ready, it will just take off without you, Very true to Nat Youngs 66 Gordon/Woods world contest board, Sam, but just tweeked here and there where Brian and I thought we could improve it, PROPS to Yater, Liddle and Paul Gross for the refining of this design over the years .

Cornwall Calling- Hulls from the wrong side of the tracks

The Canaries totally remind me of southern Baja- just as Portugal reminds me of north Baja.

And Cornwall reminds me of here, during the spring.
But that doesn't keep this from being a fine, swoopy carving turn.

My bud Alex lives in Devon, Cornwall; he got bit by the Humm Bug around a year and a half ago.
These guys evade the stormy winter blues with trips to the Canaries- apparently worthwhile, as the photos show. But back at home and back in the wetties, it looks like the Humm is still there. Hey, Alex- what fin did you put in you Geebee after the first one snapped? Geebee in the gloom, MP in the glory.

7'0'' Vee Bee , Cry Baby

Brian and I have been workin on this for awhile , its Baby surfboard inspired , a board Greenough shaped in 1965 out of balsa , nose kick added by Mctavish later , ridin by guys that surfed with George, Nat, Bob M. Russel Hughes and many others . Its fun to bring shapes like this back and add tweeks here and there to see if we can come up with something FUN!!
