Its been a long time coming guys , apologies for that . An early run of big tides & swell this year was instrumental in this model being developed . With help from Sally at The Original Surfboard Co & the lithe Mr Jack Johns we are getting close . Using historically correct (read"exotic") woods for bouyancy & flex we have created 2 different templates , The Squire model tips its hat at Toms Peaches model but adding wings & a moontail for tight in the pocket direction changes ..
The Original Surfboard co uses the Traditional English template for a more classic ride .
Im so stoked with these , not only do they look like Mid Century works of Art they also jog along at a fair rate of knots !
Available in limited quantities .

I cant believe its been nearly 8 months since i last posted .. sorry , had to do a 9-5 job in the surf industry which sucked ! The majority of surf companies are only interested in making a buck , no longer surfers trying to finance their watertime but corporate monkeys using surfing as a parasitic platform to hawk their poorly made for a price in China surf tat !
& the best thing is ?
That traditional surfriding is overlooked as not profitable !
Thank god for that ....
Hope your thinly foiled bits o wood are being unnaturally bent in a shorebreak near you !
