Too Much Fun

I've been enjoying my time int he shop lately, between days of pure stress productivity and extreme relief when each peak in my workload is summited.  Above is a 7'6 JethroHull that I'll be taking along when I shape at Deus' Temple in Bali in just a few weeks.

7'6 LadyWriter for my lovely girlfriend Lauren, also for the trip.  She'll be staying to work in Byron Bay for a short while longer once I leave, so I thought she oughtta have a little something to remember me by...heh.

Little bit 'o dis and a little bit 'a daaaaaat....

25+ boards hand shaped and laminated in one room in under 3 weeks will do some interesting stuff to ya...

Chadd's Paddle

Wish I could link this directly but alas, the powers at the helm will not let it be so.

Chadd's got a nice little video about his paddle from Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara up now, there's even a little bit of Piggyback shredding in the end section of it also:

Having a little bit of trouble swallowing the fact that as of last week I've made over 1,000 surfboards by hand.  What a trip.

This one was made for Hiten Iyer's wedding, he was my first customer ever after posting an ad on craigslist for 'Custom Surfboards'.  He got my first custom, then after a year or so and totally by chance he got #100 also...His wedding fell perfectly in time and his wife asked me to build him another board, so I thought he should also own number one thousand...Much love and respect to a man that has taught me more then he can imagine about life and our paths through it.

The Unanswered Questions of the Cosmos

Greg Swanson shot this of mr.Miles Jackler.  It was too cosmic not to share.

Heading back to Australia in a couple weeks to shape a few customs in Sydney at Evan Daley's shop (Gato Heroi Oz) then up north from there for the Byron Bay Surf Festival.  Once that's said and done its up to Bali to visit the guys at Deus Ex Machina with a few friends in tow (Troy Mothershead, Chadd Konig, Phil Browne from NJ and hopefully one mr.Ari Browne).  Oughtta' be a pretty ridiculous time!
