this is an update on the 9'3 i made last year. love the 9'3, very pinched rails, super responsive and surprisingly stable on the nose. i wanted a little more volume this time around. kept the same template and bottom contours and kept the pinched rail in the tail, but added some volume to the forward and mid rail, a bit of width, thickness and length. got to surf it in perfect loggin waves a couple weeks ago and it did everything i asked of it! stoked!
colored high density foam stringer, volan tail and knee patch.
this one's got the same template as my 6'6 whale bonzer, an inch shorter and a hair narrower throughout. also a touch more rocker for a bit more critical surf. flat deck and double concave within a single through the fins. not for me but i'll get to ride it and am interested in how it goes compared to my bonzer.
and check the reflection of the clouds in the 1st photo!
i build surfboards here in the mountains of north carolina. 100 % hand crafted, i shape 'em, glass 'em and surf 'em. this blog is to show a bit of what i do.
if you'd like to have one made please send me an email.
