Last summer my alaia almosted replaced all the time that I used to spend on my paipo. The alaia was so fast and agile but I missed the float and paddling characteristics of the paipo. I was talking to Austin about how I would like to combine all the positive characteristics of both. What you see in the picture is the outcome. It is an alaia-paipo hybrid. When the water gets a little water I will test it out and let you know what I think.
15 new boards in stock today at the shop. Stop by and check them out!
I just wanted to post up some of our buddy Igor’s work. This was a lowrider influenced board with the Mother of Guadalupe portrait and pinstripes. You can check out more of Igor’s work at http://igorscustom.com/
We will have a ton of new stock boards at the shop this weekend. Come and check out the selection!
Our new shop truck is complete! We picked this beauty up a few months ago and it was a wreck. After a lot of sanding/body work and some engine work this is what she looks like now! We can’t wait for summer to cruise around with all the doors open.
Sorry for the lack of blog updates. We are steadily rolling into the New Year with quite a workload. Over the next 3 months we will be building between 40-60 stock boards for the surf shop. So be on the lookout for some creative resin work and some real stunners!
Here is a video of us glassing a mini simmons with a mexican blanket resin pattern. Its a little long but check out the outcome!
Here is a shot with the top decking on and the bottom being prepped for decking. The rail boards had to be planed at an angle to match the curve of the bottom for the decking to sit flat so it can be screwed into place. We were wondering why Thomas Blake had to use screws for the bottom on 3″ centers and found out immediately. The bottom has so much curve that even with it in two pieces the screws cannot be any further apart than 3″. More to follow later!
For all Fridays and Saturdays in December we are having a sale on in stock surfboards. 8’0 and under boards are $50 off and 8’1 and up boards are $100 off. We have about 20 new in stock boards to check out aswell!
