7'11" Mini Glider

Finished up and ridden for the past few uber-fun days; I couldn't be happier with this little sucker!

Stringerless and glassed w/6oz bottom and double 6oz deck; with a 3/4 textured deck.

Holds a very high line with ease and comes off the bottom like a proper hull, then draws beautiful cutbacks off the long rail line in the tail...beyond excited to surf tomorrow...

Hey all you cool guys and gals!

Some of you are already well aware, but, for those of you who haven't found it yet; There is now a Point Concept Surfboards Facebook page for you to talk about how dreamy Edward Cullen is, and discuss your favorite Highschool Musical tunes, or Hannah Montana's latest adventures (does she have adventures? i don't even know...but i digress).

other topics of interest may include something funny that your dog did today, did he/she make a funny face?  That could happen...then you could discuss it openly on the new facebook page, and not feel weird about it, because we're all understanding people.

Hey, as long as it brightened your day, it's all good...or maybe you wanna post a review of a board of mine, there should be a few out there these days, but thats up to you; either way, looky looky:

or go to and type Point Concept Surfboards into the search thingymajigger! 

It Happened.

11' of glide fell into a new 7'11 package in my shaping bay yesterday...

Tre-Gor sliding around on a 5'5" Timberline fishy...the wood board side of my shaping has been really fun lately, lots of cool boards heading overseas.   

The shaped blanks (paulownia and foam) are coming in at about 5 lbs, the finished boards with quad lokboxes and glass fins are weighing about 7.5-8 lbs.

I rode Raph's new 6'1 stub yesterday and it kinda freaked me out how well it surfed, his was done with a new foam and it floated me and paddled better than a normal pu/pe board at that size...super stoked on it!

Dreamin' of a White Weekend

Brandon D. came by to hang out yesterday and watch me shape his board; a 6'3" x 22" x 2 3/4" fished out hull hybrid...he's got some camera skills and sent me this shot (among others) that i thought was really cool.

My daily driver is a 6'9" of this same shape; a pretty pulled in nose and slightly accelerated rocker, and a double to single concave inside the belly give it TONS of versatility and glide for such a short rail line.

Vacation was good to outings, big fish, girlfriend picking gargantuan zucchini, and Joe feeding sessions...never forget where you came from :)

Mas Spoonage

Taylor came down while I was building my spoon and built an edgeboard along side me, so we could both share in the joy of intense fiberglass itch and extreme foam waste. He took his board home to finish 'er off and sent me some pictures last week of the new happy couple enjoying the flowers of the northlands...stoked!

5'3 - Rigel Quad

Templated with the idea of a velo-sim tail end, with a bit more pulled in nose, the whole shape is basically sexed up and more streamlined.

The bottom is a blend of belly, triplane, double concaves and a wide spiral vee between the fins, adding a little life to the bottom shape of the twin versions.  

This is a bottom shape that I use on my personal hullish-but-not-full-hulls, and it's got me convinced you can have the best of both (if not all three) worlds.

August's Dealio - the Velosim

Once again...a board of the month for anyone interested!

Figure i'd choose the velosim for this month since i've been getting a lot of questions and a whole lot of good feedback lately from them.

Sized between 4'11 and 6' (for the big boys), they're full of volume and curves...I use a lighter belly/hull in the nose with a more relaxed rocker, and transition to a tri-plane bottom w/a single concave from between the feet through the tail.  My template is a wee bit curvier in the tail end as well, taking a little bit of the blockiness out of the back end.

$500 w/marine ply glassons, $470 with lokboxes for the month of august, turnaround is aboot 6 weeks at the moment...shoot me an email and we'll get sizing nailed down :)

New Shape

This shape (6'9" x 22" x 2 3/4") was originally custom shaped for Keith Novosel for a trip to Oz, I've been calling it the Dreadnought:

It's a sub 7' hull, with a bit rounder rail line/template than the hullibut, but sharing many of the same general curves, just a little more "sensual".

Still painstakingly foiled out over the whole of the board.

Very flat rocker, but keeping an even curve for flow...this design is shaped with more active hull surfing in mind without lacking any of the ridiculous speed we've gotten out of the 7'ers.
