Winter Time Six Eight

This is G4's new enzo @ 6'8". Whaddaya think?! He's our sander at Diamond Glassing and a shaper himself. He came up to the ranch to help out with this gem. This is a perfect example of when two heads are definitely better than one! Alex treated him to a dual-tone mint and smoke combo tint. It's finished in a sanded acrylic for light weight performance. The fin complement is our new 7" Flex Cutter with a pair of 2" sides for edge control in tight pockets. Come and get one while the surf is grinding. dm

When you don't live near the ocean, you must find some water-borne stoke.... one way or another. Our friends Larry Custodio and Troy Miller, from Carbondale - Colorado, have found a use for their Murphy Egg. Wake surfing! Here's a shot of Troy surfing behind Larry's boat on a lake near their house. You have to get those rides in now before Winter comes a knockin. Thanks for the photos guys!

Tom's New Toy

Hooked up with my old high school friend Tom Wenborne and created a copy of a board I made for him about 20 years ago! Great all-arounder for a bigger guy. Tom was a good friend from the old neighborhood and quite a football player to boot. Enjoy the new yellow scorcher my friend! dm

Mainland Memoirs

Here's a note - and photos - from my Special Agent/Team Rider/long-time bud Chris Miller. He recently returned from a trip to Mainland Mexico and clearly had a great time - dm, "el guapo" "Here's a few fotos from the trip. It was like this almost every day. The old comp longboard you shaped for me around 2005, is still alive. I took her down about 4 years ago and stashed her at my friends casita near the point. She's a bit browner and heavier than I remembered, but still has the magic. My friend Larry rode this board 5 years ago and dubbed it the Love Wand (i think he actually loved it). Thanks again for all the great boards over the last 20 years! Damn, I'm getting old..."
