here is Matt our glasser glassing the deck after completing a sick acid splash bottom. The top glass gets lapped onto the bottom of the board. The wider the lap the stronger the board is in resisting breakage. (wide lap) – Too much and it adds extra weight that is not desired. Matt makes the very difficult look easy! Super grateful to the expert craftsman who work so hard in heat and sweat to create these magic boards.

Yes, the blunt not your sexy 6’0 x 18.5 shortboard but damn that board is so much fun to ride. Especially when the waves are less than macking (like they were yesterday). I went to the beach with my 6’3 roundo epoxy stringerless short board and was hoping for some leftover surprises. But the Florida reality model thankfully was in the car as well. So guess what I paddled out on the blunt in gutless mushey Florida waist high sometimes bigger waves and had a blast. That board catches waves like a dream lets you go super fast and when the wave in .5 seconds decides to stop you can still rip a cut back and rebound the white water and have a really fun turn and still get past that dog section while connecting… well sections. Just a great cheater board for getting you in the water and having a good time. Being in the water is what it is all about and this is the ultimate have fun board. Surf on.

Some nice color on a longboard can make that board memorable for the rest of your life. The paint or color design helps key your memory on some of the great rides you had while riding that board!
Nothing better than picking up a new longboard at the beginning of Summer to keep your stoke up by staying in the water! This is Michael Tripp picking up a new 9’6″ in epoxy!
Sometimes when there are boulders submerged and exposed thirty feet away and you have already landed on your back on one earlier in the day – Several people have been lacerated, abraded and had multiple contusions and foot cuts…a floater might not be a good call…and a survival exit is in order! (Actually this was a really fun wave and even got a little cover up on it.)
