Homage... reworked piggy goodness..

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

Ahhh, you can just feel the love burst out in this thread :lol:

As Rob says Roy, Nats surfing in that clip uses noseriding as a piece of functional surfing instead of what I would term 'hood-ornament' noseriding - simply using the pocket of the wave to move forward and get the trim speed up on that flat rocker upfront - now that's what noseriding is about imho (however, don't get me wrong, could watch someone like CJ get perched all day long)

Yep the Sam is not going to work over a certain length - but is there any template (possibly the simmons and a glider) that will work from extremely short lengths to extremely long?

the Sam is just a great, functional, enjoyable surf craft - can't wait to get mine :lol:

Ahh Mate :D - The velo template can be stretched so much, Paul Gross made lots of variations using the 1967 velo template - I'm tring to do the same but the longer 11' versions which I want to make
needs some bastardised blanks to get the foam.

1 x 1967 Velo template = 4

I can, and have, made these with Pauls templates - trim machines...longer and longer they go...the more smooth they become.

Think I need a go :lol:

I bet that 11+ is an absolute glider - do you even have to paddle that to get in? :lol:

An outboard motor, an air-horn, some muscle relaxant, and a thick skin - and you'll be catching swells so far out that you'll be a danger to shipping. :D

That's cheating.......whole point of surfing is to knacker your arms paddling until they are like noodles :lol:

and here goes another one to a customer who surfs from Monterey to Moss Landing :shock:

A little "fuller" all over for a bigger guy. 9'8"x23"x3 1/2" but fully foiled into the ends.

8oz bottom, 2x8oz + patch deck.. In his words, It's an heirloom... Sweet!

tried to pass off the polish on this one, but seem to keep doing it all... :? :roll:

Rob - are the nose concaves a new refinement? Is it a single concave going into a double or is that just a qwerk of the photo?

Looking good as always

thanks fellas!

the concave changed in only that is goes right out the nose, like the intake on your car, letting the water enter the concave easily, and creating immediate lift. Same single/bevel as always.

these ones have slightly wider templates over all, but are nowhere near as wide as a "noserider" so they still turn really well. Been proving to be real popular, so pretty stoked on the the results!

Jory - the bird lam is artwork by the clients better half. Not usually one to do this sorta thing, but it came out classy looking.

Rock Pidgeon or Wood Pidgeon? - this is the kind of attention to detail we need! - Whatever, either will go well with a red-wine and balsamic jus.... tasty!

Joking aside - lovely touch that
