Happy New Surf Year!!

Just sayin… Make it a great year enjoying life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Love how Pope Francis has declared this the “year of Mercy”. That to me is just spectacularly wonderful and gives my heart joy for the possibility of a united, caring, loving world. Being human is fraught with so many distractions that might lead us to believe that we are not surrounded by love more than hate. When in reality there is much more good then evil and many more humans that genuinely assist than turn away. So share a good wave, peak and instead of yelling profanity at the kook that drops in on us this year give them a cheer and let them know you well catch the next one and/or thank them when complemented on your skillful cutback that saved the day! Peace on earth and shovel nose cutbacks!

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
