6'1" Modern fish (aka Turdfish)

Dims: 6'1"x21_7/8"x2_3/4"
Core: Austin Foam EPS
Glassing Schedule: Resin Research Epoxy, Bottom 6 oz., Deck 6+4 oz.

Neil and I sat down and designed this one together on APS3000 for LA type crappy surf. Custom graphics by Neil and Luki provide a statement about the sad current state of affairs in Santa Monica Bay. Optional quad setup but may go best as a twin.


Rider: Shayne, 5'8" 160 lbs.

(EPS/Epoxy version)
Core: Austin Foam EPS
Glassing Schedule: Carbon-Fuzed Epoxy, Bottom 4+4 oz., Deck 4+4 oz.

(PU/PE version)
Core: Surfblanks Australia - green density
Glassing Schedule: Polyester resin, Bottom 4+4 oz., Deck 4+4 oz.

Like many of the popular quads floating around today. A fast small to med wave board and for aerials. Also made one out of PU/PE and same glassing schedule for comparison. Shayne definitely preferred the EPS/Epoxy in terms of liveliness and drive.

6'0" Hemp Biofoam Shortboard

Rider: Aron, 6'0" 180 lbs.
Core: Homeblown Biofoam
Glassing Schedule: Epoxy, Bottom 6oz hemp, Deck 6oz hemp + 6oz hemp Deck Patch

Aron could throw it around in small wave conditions and liked the flex and drive of the board. He's banged on this hemp board pretty well, and it's survived. Even the leash plug is made of biodegradable plastic from Greenlight Surf Supply.
