Ruy Nepomuceno Neto from Rio de Janeiro , Brazil, sent me these pics of his new board shaped for him by Filipe Hage. He had it made for his girlfriend and one fin represents him surfing a short board and the other his girlfriend surfing her longboard. Nice touch. Thanks for sharing.
Yes I have the word from Sean Mattison that the Fish Fry is back on the agenda. Not AB3 or something else but a Fish Fry - just FISH . Like it was when I was there for Fish Fry 4 in 2006 at Oceanside. The fish isn't dead guys . So it is Sunday September 13th. More details when they come to hand. We had some 35 + shapers at the Alley Fish Fry and the Japanese one was a huge success . The fish is influencing a lot of the shapes that are out there now. Too soon to pull the plug guys.
The fish will be schooling at Oceanside again.

New Zealand has some great waves and some great artists. Daryn Mcbride just happens to be a former pro longboarder that captures the beauty of his homeland and the sea in a magical way.

Here is some fine wood work for sure . Five or six mixed woods all chambered and shaped . Beautiful gloss finish . Click on the image for a bigger view of the detail. As you can see it has become one of Rogers regular rides. So it is no show pony , but a great performing board. Roger is a little rugged up for the New Zealand winter .
