Ok, no excuses... Too long before this update... To say lots going would be an under statement. I have had a couple trips to Barbaods in this time.. lots of exepriments, lots of shaping and lots of kiting, surfing and SUP'ing.. Busted my ear drum surfing in Barbados, so had a coupel months off while I had that operated on and repaired.. Good to go now!!!
Sup'ing long pond in March 2008 Barbados.
Cool water shot by Mark Harris..
Been shaping lots of Fishes...Short and Fat.
I have some new photos of finished surfboards on my SURF page
SUPs!!!! Can't shape them fast enough!!!
Been doing a lot of Stand up paddle boards as well with some good results. Sizes are coming down thankfully. They range between 9' and 10'6" . Averaging about 29-30 inches wide with different tails configuration. Some pins, large swallows. I have my own personal SUP board, a 9'6" fish tail quad/ single fin that I am just loving!

Been also doing some prototypes for wake skates.....
There has been a push on the kitescoop forum for a DC / kitescoop wake skate. (Link here) SO I have been doing some work on prototypes to come with the best design. I am in the final stages and hopefully in a few months these should be available.. Stand by for more info on this project. Here is sneak peek early on in the process...
My friend Paul went to Barbados and made a couple videos you might want to ck out. See Paul's vid here!
