Spent a pretty hefty chunk of time designing a board in CAD, outside of the normal high performance shortboard realm. Got another board coming up that will take may take double the time then this one, but pretty excited on that one too.
The best 3 1/8 thick board I've shaped so far. Shaping tiny little grom boards or super big thick boards take extra awareness as you shape. Been shaping some real thick ones recently and learned some new skills sets that are paying off.
Got Ethan a new Gi. Pretty stoked since he's so young getting his toddler size is a bit more difficult.
Getting so big already.
Gonna try this .
Busy getting everyone's summer boards ready. Stoked to be able to put boards under a variety of surfers feet. Always grateful.
Going deeper into new designs concepts then I ever have as a shaper. No sleep endless worm hole.
Taking some detailed computer notes of some boards just tested and about to be switched out. Learned a lot of little things.
Lot of fun style shapes out there, artistic shapes , but as a shaper I'm still hooked on the chase of high performance shortboard designs.
Started more production with secondary factory. Had to reply on shaping experience, quality control by eye, and feel, to make sure the results are the same.

Was super excited to ride a step up again, especially since it's almost summer. Waves still pumping double over head and way more. Unfortunately the onshore winds were causing too much close outs and weird bad ones. Had to surf a spot half the size on a regular shorty, but still fun.
Just invested into another part of production, which is on par with all the best shapers in the world without a doubt.
Super excited as this is a major 10 X, and will take the boards into a another level.
Gonna miss winter. Beside the shark factor recently. 20 min from my house, and most days were 4-6ft and fun. Trying to squeeze out a few more weeks of it.

Hanging out with Derek Wongs family.
Been working hard on my frontside top turns and all things related to it, fins and boards. Still a lot to clean up approach wise.

At the 9:30 in video. Looks like a sketchy shark. Nutz.
