fun to get a new board

It is so great to get a new board and get your stoke on and then have waves too! I have had in inventory for the last six month’s this really sick six channel board in a flying floatey fish model. I stopped drooling on it and grabbed it for myself this past week and got to ride it Sunday on the really big waves (for florida) were coming in. One of my first turns was a cut back on a open face and that board just held in and let me do a great cut back carve. One of the things I love about channel bottoms is they hold in for the most deep gashing turns imaginable. The harder you turn the better the board responds. Good stuff! Hope everyone got that fresh Happy 2014 Swell this past weekend!

About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards
