Pics from Luke & Bec
Gillo with his new JD model and the Bondi Long boarders Club 50 - 56yrs championship trophy
This is pretty much the most competitive devision in the whole club.
And he did it all on his collection of Waxa's
Comps on next Sunday if you feel like talking boards with a bunch of 'young at heart' dudes
My new Log
Having been backed up with orders for the last 15 Months, i've never had a chance to make this board for myself
This is my next move from the 'Model Po', i've kept the nose concave shallow and defined like the Po while adding 3'/4 to the tail width. Increasing curve to the tail will add better turning off the tail and stability to combat the glass on 10.5' flex fin. This is combined with thinnly foiled rails creating speed and more bite off the tail than your average Log
A new feature to this model will be a 1/16" concave on the deck at the tail. This creates drag and locks the board in while riding the nose and doesn't interrupt trim when riding from the middle and tail.
I've got a good feeling about this one, my regulars have already ordered a couple after listening to me hype on about it incessantly for the last two months
More Photos, Fins, Glassing and Model Name to Come next week
I am a surfboard builder, making my small mark on a very large industry. I make all of my boards by hand from start to finish using traditional surfboard building techniques to draw clean lines and apply bold colours influenced by 1930' s to 1960's surf culture.
