There are some real special "Premium Builds" on order and starting to roll through the Haakenson Factory.
This one just got finished for "Gearnut" who belongs to Jamboards. It will ship with Hank M's yellow 8'6" Mega New Machine.
Gear sent the Dia de los Muertes fabric and it really pops on the screen!
The board is 10"x24"x3-1/2"x98L.
Happy Holidays to All.
Here's a few more pieces of Xmas 2019 Eye Candy.
Another "Mega New Machine" hits the glass shop. (That's a 9'0" V8 for Rudy in the PNW up against it).
More to come.
Latest custom rolling through.
The board has a14" Nose & 16-3/8" Tail. Vee in nose with long Panel Vee thru back half.
Centerline rocker is 2.75" Rail Rocker @ Tail 4.0".
Should be a smooth fluid mover that will turn easy for it's 10 feet of Relaxed Rocker - which is what he was after.
No Frill Glass Job on this one Double 6 oz Deck with Single 6 oz Bottom, all E Glass using the new Modified Polyacrylic Resin System. 4+1 Fin Box option. Sanded Gloss Finish.
Board order a couple weeks ago, will go into glassing today and be done in 4-5 more days. "Is my board ready yet"?
Get ready to Lock n Load!
Hmmm, there's a couple rocker stick closeups in there that are upside down. Not sure how that happened.
Oh well it's all relative.... ;-)
Let's see what else I've got................ ah Rudy's 9'0"x24"x3-14" V8 that was sitting vertically against the pretty Fabric 10'0" for Chris......... lemmee check my foto files here. Board went north via Amtrak to Seattle and I'm awaiting a Ride Report. Rudy has gotten two 7'6" BFV8's from me previously and wanted extra paddle power.
First picture is his artistic conception and the guitar he wanted the coloration to mimic. He also supplied his "Shred Dog" logo, which everyone was digging. I've got some full board shots I'll have to dig up and post here later.
Haven't seen that kind of airbrush done in a long time. Who has Hawk got doing painting for him these days. I remember when he preferred to do nothing but clears. Last time I saw that kind of airbrush Hoyt did that on the nose of a longboard. And that was a year or so before he moved South to work for Clyde and eventually Al. So that was a long time ago brother. Haha. Lowel
Haakenson did it. He is painting all the boards and still glassing the abstracts, resin tints, and some others.
Since I'm on here, here's the latest with board stuff.
Sean began searching the world for waves many moons ago. He discovered unnamed surf breaks empty and ripe for the picking. After years as an accountant, he finally found his own path and created what today is a thriving business offering adventures that will excite the most discerning adventurer and producefond memories that will last a lifetime.
He has sent some early fotos of him riding his newly delivered 6'6" BF New Machine. His brother is with him riding Sean's 6'10". He has promised more pix once they get to their next destination, Fiji.
To be continued.
Another New Machine. This one is for Todd T. of the Central Coast.
It's 5'11"x20-3/4"x2-5/8" about 35.5-36 Liters. S Glass build Polyester Resin. 3-4-5 Fin Option.
He came by with his wife after a week end stay in Santa Barbara. They were to go to a large Health Food and Lifestyle Convention in Anaheim this week end, but alas, it was cancelled due to the Coronavirus epidemic. I like their choice of alternatives.
This 'Black Beauty' has a nudge more rocker in the last 10" of nose for late takeoffs and my standard issue Panel Vee and uber thin quick release tail. The critical Rocker Arc Ratio for a board this size runs 16" thru 22" and remains relatively flat for ease of planing. There's slight concave thru the mid section with mild double concave feeding into the fin cluster. A bit more foam over the chest area for ease of paddling.
Well now..................... SOMETHING IS WACKA DOODLE!
I POSTED FOTOS #5 & #7 TWICE AND IT STILL SET THEM AS UPSIDE DOWN? THEY AREN'T THAT WAY IN MY FILES.............. MAYBE THOSE TWO GOT THE CORONAVIRUS?
