With all the stuff I have been doing with boards from rubbish and entries into the Vissla creators contest the last few years I have had the chance to meet and work on a few hings with the General manager of Vissla.
I have been invited to go down to the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro. Which is the WQS 6000.
I haven't wanted to say anything as it may not have happened but now it all go. 5 of my boards are being shipped down I have flights booked and leave from work. EEEEKKKKK
Amongst other things I am doing a reshape for charity (Surfrider foundation). I have been promised a 5'10" length of longboard nose that I plan to make a Manny Carrow inspired thing either with little almost finless finlettes or maybe a quad.
SOOOO two things.
1. Gimmi your thoughts on the three outlines in the pic. The one on the left is the nose from the after and the tail from the before.
check out @swallowtailsociety for more of Manny's work, he is amazing
2. If you wanna see what a backyard hack gets up to when they let me loose in a shaping bay at a WQS event in between legends of the shaping world check out my insta @skatement_surfboards.
Yay for the little guy.
