Kabir's Stubber

Nothing wrong with an ultra clean coke-bottle tint on a 6'3 2+1 Stub...I have a huge crush on this board but luckily I happen to know the future owner so I'll be seeing it around!!





For scale...

CTO's 5'1" x 23" x 3" Simmons inspired hull/stub/platter, I've really got no idea what to call it as I'd feel wrong calling it a Simmons Fish or Simmons anything? So for not its an inspired....hull/stub/platter!

This is the first one I've shaped; I had a blast with this thing, so many curves and transitions it'll make your head spin...kept me focused to say the least!
Can't wait to make more!

Flatland Activities

The Santa Barbara Skateshop got a new toy from a company on the east coast...I was laughing untl I tried it...I really wish it wasn't half as fun as it was; you can get moving pretty damn fast.

Rincon is Awake



Buh-ottom turn.

5'5 Timberline TT and T.Rev piloting...

T.Rev's TRooster Trial

Just got a message from Trevor after riding the (newly named) 5'3" TRooster, se dice:

"Oh my that board is amazing...Way better than the [C.I.] Biscuit by a mile...Soooo fast and turny at the same time. Seriously tho its buttery magic. Perfect for small or medium sized point breaks. 'Tis it's home."

....sounds like we have a winner :)

New Adventures in Fin Craft

The fin end of CTO's new 5'1 Simmons Inspired hull disc thing...
Ill post whole board photos tomorrow after i get some good ones. Maybe you've noticed the quality of my photos has taken a serious turn for the worse; my beloved 10d was stolen a month or two ago so my phone is taking its place 'till I can scrounge up some $ for another!

It's been a while since I foiled a set of fins, safe to say it was really really fun to get back to it; plan on seeing some more fins soon!

T.Rev's Rooster Rodeo

Trevor had an old blank hanging out at home and asked me to shape him something...we ended up with a 5'3...thing.
I took the tail half of my roundpin longboard template, and mashed it into the front half of a twin fish template...i likey!

More Progress

Never thought I'd be doing this color combo again!
First did it two years ago on my personal longboard (still my daily driver!). I fell in love with the colors instantly...the idea was to get a bit of Santa Barbara feel in a board, light blue sky...bricky orange tile get the idea!

The board above is a 9' Pintail noserider/winter trim machine for a local off of love when my boards stay around town!

Trying HARD!

So I'm making a concerted effort to post more boards on here...the summer was slow with the exception of the Timberline work, but I'm more than back into the swing of things and am powering through about 15 boards right now...more to come!

This one is Kyle L's 6'1 SBq...the thing came out so beautifully, couldn't be any happier when a board comes together this well!
