Demo boards from Byron Bay Surf Festival

We had a great weekend down in Byron Bay. Yes it was windy the whole time but the vibe was great and we met so many interesting people and our boards were well received.

Getting ready to head to the shaping bay

 6ft 6" tri plane hull

 After laminating the rail bands on it is a matter of planing down the excess Paulownia before heading to the comfort of the air conditioned shaping bay. Lights, AC and it saves all that dust at home.
7ft Hydro Simmons getting a nose job before heading off as well.

Alley Slider for Matt

 10ft x 23 3/4" x 3 1/4" for 96 litres

7ft Hydro Pin for Bevan

7ft x 22 1/2" x 2 3/4" for 50 litres
6oz bottom and 6oz top with 3/4 6oz patch

Hi Grant,

"Yes like the new board. It has a beautiful sense of glide to it. Easy paddler. Went to Rainbow-greeny and also to d bah. Just flies when you set the rail, high lines, power carves, foamball bounces. Got quite a few backdoor sections at dbah. It was about waist high and bigger. Walking up and down the board a bit , and it is quite throw aroundable."

6ft 6" tri plane hull for Byron Bay Surf Festival

This is turning out to be a sweet little board. With 3mm skins and only 2 x 5mm rail laminates , I will have to decide how I finish it , lanolin , varnish or 4oz glass job.

Jordan's HSC project

Young Jordan Reynolds wanted to do something different for his HSC, and so with his love of surfing he decided to test himself out with building a board.It is Paulownia bagged over EPS and he has done a great job. Here is his project ...

It has been great to help out a young guy who wants to test himself and achieve something like this. And the result is first class. I am sure he has started on a journey that will keep him busy for a while now.

7ft Hydro Simmons on the go.

I am on the home straight with getting the rails on this 7ft x 24" Hydro Simmons.
