hot & glossy

here's a couple of johan's boards in progress. the blue one is a 6' quad, the beige one a 6'2 3fin bonzer. the bonzer is getting a gloss coat and the quad a hot coat.

here it is, the long awaited 2x4. 
frontside is set up with a keel fin, backside as a quad. the backside rail has a wing and  is 1" longer. the concave on the  twin side is based on a single concave between the fins and the concave on the quad side carries all the way to the rail from the wing back. i'll let you know how it goes. can't wait, hope to prove all you skeptics wrong. one disadvantage does not stand up straight!

6'1 tomfish

when i asked tom what color he wanted he said "ocean camo". what? "blue, green, seeweed, so that when you look up from underneath you blend in". best i could do!

quad pod

this one's a bit different. it's got a hullish entry and pinched 60/40 rails blending into a hard rail in the tail. tons of belly up front, fading to a deep double concave. low rocker, "s" deck. thick under the chest, very thin nose and tail. 6'6 16 1/2 x 
21 1/2 x 15 1/2  x 3.
it's fun in the water. trims and carves down the line from  the center. very fast. step a foot back and 4 fins and concave engage. tons of drive and bite through turns. i also found it to be a favorite in choppy conditions.
