The Bandit

 

The Bandit was an original template from 1972 which would have been a twin fin. At that time I was using the Guidance Fin System, the fins that you push in and pop back to put the holding clip in place. I decided to bring this back in late summer 2017. I found that this design, coupled with modern rails and a modern rocker in the original outline, works well with all fin configurations and will accommodate bigger surfers on a shorter board.

SIZE RANGE: 5'4" TO 8'0"

AVG DIMS @ 5' 10":

  • Nose: 17 1/2"
  • Width: 21"
  • Tail: 17 1/2"
  • Thickness: 2 5/8"

FIN SET UP: Single, Twin, 3 Fin, & 5 Fin

RESIN: Clear or Color(s), Pin Lines, Hot Coats

Acid Fish

 

This was the last original template I had from 1979 for a single fin. This was right before everyone changed over to thrusters in early 80's.  Bringing this design back with a flatter deck, a forward foil, and a beak nose will get you the high-line speed you're looking for. This board will also accommodate all the fin set up's.

SIZE RANGE: 5'4" TO 8'0"

AVG DIMS @ 5' 10":

  • Nose: 14 1/4"
  • Width: 20"
  • Tail: 15 3/4"
  • Thickness: 2 1/2"

FIN SET UP: Single, Twin, 3 Fin, & 5 Fin

RESIN: Clear or Color(s), Pin Lines, Hot Coats

FINISH: Sanded & Sealed OR Glossed & Polished 


The Ninja

 

This plan shape is what I used to ride in the late 80's when I shaped abroad. It has a wide planing surface to get over the flat spots but also enough curve in the outline to surf tight in the pocket. I've always liked the diamond tail because the water breaks from the outside edge which shortens the board about 1 1/2" on the turn. The original template is about 7'4" but I reconfigured it to fit a wider range of sizes. All fin configurations available.

SIZE RANGE: 5'4" TO 8'0"

AVG DIMS @ 5' 10":

  • Nose: 15 1/4"
  • Width: 21"
  • Tail: 16 1/2"
  • Thickness: 2 1/2"

FIN SET UP: Single, Twin, 3 Fin, & 5 Fin

RESIN: Clear or Color(s), Pin Lines, Hot Coats

FINISH: Sanded & Sealed OR Glossed & Polished  


KING FISH

 

When the fish came out of San Diego and other twin fin designs started popping up there were specific outlines that were surfacing on the North Shore that were ideal for the conditions.

SIZE RANGE: 5'2" TO 6'0"

AVG DIMS: @ 5'4

  • Nose: 17"
  • Width: 20"
  • Tail: 16 1/4"
  • Thickness: 2 1/4"

FIN SET UP: TWIN KEEL WOOD GLASS-ON, FIBERGLASS GLASS-ONS, FUTURE BOXES

RESIN: CLEAR OR COLOR(S), PIN LINES,   HOT COATS

FINISH: SANDED & SEALED OR GLOSSSED & POLISHED 


DREAM FISH

 

The Dream Fish is a racier version of my popular Thing series. This surfboard will ride more like performance shortboard by allowing you to get more vertical yet still get you through the flatter sections of a wave because of the wider, straighter outline.

SIZE RANGE: 5'4" to 8'0"

AVG DIMS @ 6'0":

  • Nose: 15"
  • Width: 20 7/8"
  • Tail: 16 3/4"
  • Thickness: 2 1/2"

FIN SET UP: 5 FIN BOX

RESIN: CLEAR OR COLOR(S), PIN LINES, HOT COATS

FINISH: SANDED & SEALED OR GLOSSED & POLISHED


The Assassin

 

The assassin was a board I originally shaped in 1971, it was inspired by what some of the Australians road in the 1970 world contest in Victoria Australia. The board had a displacement hull bottom, the new version can be built either with the displacement hull or a contemporary bottom. The original was 6’8, 22 inches wide 3 inches thick.

SIZE RANGE: 6'0" TO 6'8"

AVG DIMS @ 6'8":

  • Nose: 15"
  • Width: 22"
  • Tail: 15 3/4"
  • Thickness: 2 3/4"

FIN SET UP: SINGLE, 2+1, 5 FIN

RESIN: CLEAR OR COLOR(S), PIN LINES, HOT COATS

FINISH: SANDED & SEALED OR GLOSSED & POLISHED 


Assassin 71'

 

The Assassin 71' is a replica of what I was building back in 1971. Surfboards at that time had a displacement hull in the nose just like the longboards. It has a fuller 50/50 rail with a slight edge in the tail in the last 12 inches. Its also thicker because of the rails, so it becomes 3" thick at 6'8".

SIZE RANGE: 6'0" TO 6'8"

AVG DIMS @ 6'8":

  • Nose: 15"
  • Width: 22"
  • Tail: 15 3/4"
  • Thickness: 3"

FIN SET UP: SINGLE FIN, 2+1

RESIN: CLEAR OR COLOR(S), PIN LINES, HOT COATS

FINISH: SANDED & SEALED OR GLOSSED & POLISHED
