gero's jumbo quanzer

this one's got a hi-polished full deck concave, beak nose, a bit eggy, alot fishy and oughta make stealing a few waves in a crowd easy. fin setup borrows alot from the eaton zingers and bonzers and is my favorite 4 fin configuration.

this was one of my favorite boards to make awhile back. mike came across t. fitzgerald's drifta 2 in an old surfer's journal and asked if i could make something along those lines to surf a sometimes hollow, racy righthander he frequents. hell yea, i'll give it a shot. terry fitzgerald has always been one of my favorite surfers to watch on film and a very inspiring lifelong surfer/shaper.  visions of the sultan's high style speed drive at j-bay and low pivotal turns on the north shore in 70's forever imprinted. if you've not seen "hot buttered soul", now's the time.

nz hull flashback

this was one of my first sessions in new zealand just about 1 year ago. did not want to haul a longboard over there so the 7'2 lunchtray hull was the call. this has proved to be one of my favorite boards and more versatile than one might think....makes fun of less than perfect surf.
oh man, wish i was back in nz about now! such a beautiful spot and great start to the trip.

cruisin' in the shadows

i made a 6'4 version of this for a friend early last summer. from time to time when building something new for someone else, i just know i have to have one myself.  when making the 6'4,  it felt so good in my hands, was super fun and easy to shape, i spent hours imagining how it would surf, and knew i had to have one myself. i stretched mine out a little and here it is. i also did some resin pins inspired by the old 70's g&s skate team colors....love those reds and yellows and maybe a little brown. also stoked on the rusty flex fins for singles..positive and plenty of drive.
i've only had a few days on his board, felt like i imagined,  i think i will be around awhile.
