I have had a “Bit of a run” just lately, and as it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get a board from “Shaped” to “Ready to Collect”, I have had difficulty in getting any stock together.
Paint Sprays are also featuring well, looks like Retro Resin Tints and the like are not “The Flavour” at the moment.
I have a few “Stock Boards” nearing completion, that will be “Ready To Go” next week. So if you are in the market for a New Longboard, but do not want to wait for a month for a Custom Order… get in touch with me soon.
I have shaped yet another “Easy to Nose-Ride Model”. It is being Glassed right now, 9’6″ long, and 23 1/2″ wide, Pintail, but with a generous “Hip Area”… and plenty of width in the nose. It has been shaped out of a “Standard Rocker Blank” so will not suit the “Purists” but should be the best of both in terms of Easy Turning and Tip Time.
I have taken a new direction in my Quest for the perfect Nose-Rider…. Lightweight Glassing, and a Matte Lacquer finish, so the Glide and Trim will not be so Automatic, but the “slow down and speed up” that makes Small Wave Nose-Riding so exciting should be built in…. we will see
Full Report when it is ready…. and Katy and I have been Playing!
