Like everyone else, I’ve been on the hunt for waves this last month. Despite some un-characteristic travels, I got the goods mostly at home. Here are a few moments…

Smith K / Smith F
Up North. This joint is custom made for tow surfing…
Eight foot and empty

Cold Crew, Clare
Long-time mate, Short-time parent, sometime Terror and master stringman Simon O’Reilly is plugging his next move. He needs our help and you can find out more here. There is some magic in the taster below too…
By a strange run of circumstance, I was recently lucky enough to have Neal Purchase visit the workshop and make a couple of boards. If you don’t know what he’s into, have a look at his blog.
Old mate, new board. Dickie and the 8’1
8’1 x 19 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. Flattish rocker, full, tucked rails, thruster. The idea here is to get in early and glide into the pocket. Heavily glassed, triple 6oz deck, double 6oz bottom giving approx. 6kg.
Similar one for Cain Kilcullen. Stoked to make one for Cain, but a little nervous that it might not be what he bargained for as he headed in the direction of Aileen’s directly from the workshop… Seemed to go well for him though, and remained intact.
