Summer has arrived back home, which if you ask me, is a perfect time to order a summer board and to start thinking about your winter step-up….

Updating Base Models

1.) Mini Simmons 5’2 to 5’6
2.) Twin Keel Fish 5’4 to 6’0
3.) Double Bump Fish (still a twin fin… I don’t like quad fishes) 5’6 to 6’0
4.) Double Bump Pin (quad or thruster) 5’10 to 6’6
       This shape can also ditch the double bump and just use a rounded pin tail
5.) Double Bump Single Fin 7’4 to 8’0 (similar to rounded pin, with harder/tighter turning radius)
6.) Rounded Pin Single Fin 7’2 to 7’6 (all arounder)
7.) Mini Glider 7’6 to 8’0 (mellow long waves up to head high)
8.) Modern Pipeliner 7’4 to 8’0 (for serious hollow waves)
All sleds are hand shaped start to finish. This computer program is a nice way to visualize the outline, however, a board cannot truly be custom and hand crafted if put through a CNC machine.

5’8 Keel Fin

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 2.03.22 PM


Here is a great example of my Twin Keel design. The wide tail block and full foil allow this board to work in waves knee to head high. The template on this particular shape is more suited for a shortboard transplant. The wide point has been moved back from the traditional Steve Lis fish design to allow for more back footed surfing. I don’t blow my knees out turning often, but when I do I’m surfing my fish. At 5’8 with twin glass on keels, this little temptress is fast, loose, and ready to smooth out your surfing. Seriously, buy one already.
