New Orange 6'-8"

This is Dave Berman's new ride. This stick is what I came up with when Dave mentioned that he was interested in one of those minis with two fins glued on the tailblock. I asked him if he had tried one. Naturally his response was "not really". This is a great example of Alex Villalobos' work in the laminating arena. He is smokin' hot with abstracts and swirls. We're so lucky to have him with Diamond Glassing. Dave waxed-up his new 6'8" winger and proceeded to out-paddle the Janitors @ Cardiff for ankle slappers. Great testimony from a guy who regularly rides a 7'10". dm out for now

Broken in New Zealand

Cool story from New Zealand:
Hi: i have a board that my father gave me that started me surfing. he bought it at Opua Marina from an American couple who had brought it out to New Zealand on there yacht. It's 9ft with OFishl sidebites. Had a lot of dings about 30 from bounching around at sea for a few years plus a few delams - not the prettyest repairs but water tight. Its been a bit over a year hours of fun and sadly it has cracked the glass rail to rail underneath and prob a third on top (ended a great overhead offshore session).I think will prob have a go at fixing it. Any how just thought you might like to know the boards are being enjoyed all the way down here. I have a couple of pics of the thanks, Tommy

Leucadia Boys Get New Toys

A couple of our Leucadian posse ordered up some new boards.
Corey Messer with his new 9'-2".

Rodney "Rodrigo" and his new 8'-10".

They both designed their own artwork on these boards and rumor has it that both of these boards work unreal.
