Here's a peaceful interlude for your afternoon... a tastefully done piece on Griffin Neumann-Kyle shaping a Lumberjack, fimed and edited by Brecht Van't Hof. A tremendous amount of time and attention to detail goes into the shaping of each Almond Surfboard. This 3-minute clip offers a glimpse into Griffin's routine.

Out on the west coast of Ireland, Patagonia Surf Ambassador Tom Doidge-Harrison spends his time chasing waves and honing his craft shaping surfboards. “You don’t need all this stuff,” says Tom as he talks about the jacket he’s shaped five hundred boards in, “you just need one that works properly and try to make it last as long as you can.” Our clothes not only serve us with warmth and protection, they carry our stories — surfboard foam shavings and all. That’s what makes them worth hanging onto, repairing and using as long as possible; a virtue that comes naturally to Tom.

Jokin Etxeberria - Vissla Flow Team from Jungle Juice on Vimeo.
Jokin Etxeberria se suma al "Flow Team" de Vissla a nivel nacional representando a la perfección sus dos grandes slogans:
"Creators & Innovators" - él mismo se fabrica varias de sus propias tablas
"Surf everything & ride anything" - le encanta surfear con todo tipo de tablas y en todo tipo de condiciones, desde medio metro con un longboard hasta olas cañeras con un pincho asimetrico, un twifin playero o un single clásico.
Un completo desconocido para la gran masa pero un surfer de gran talento para todos aquellos que le han visto surfear.

HOT PLASTIC EVOLUTION. from CJ Nelson on Vimeo.
I have been using this as my inspiration reel for a couple years now. When i first got my Australian Slasher made by Ian Chisholm, i looked everywhere for clips of people riding similar designs so i could sort out the origional intent behind this style board. Aside from all the modern footage of Al Knost and Dane Peterson and the obvious others who rip on Involvement style logs, its nice to dig into the history books to see Involvement logging in its heyday with the masters behind the wheel. -cj

9'4" Mr. Rodgers
Fins: Single box, fiberglass fin included
Color: Clear volan top and bottom, 2-stringer (bass) with black foam t-band and offset glue lines, gloss/polish
Designed in collaboration with Bing rider, Mick Rodgers, the Mr. Rodgers is a Nuuhiwa/Rick Noserider-influenced noserider that is designed for ample lift while still maintaining forward trim speed and turning ability. The blended concave creates smooth noserides and control on the tip, and the slightly pulled in nose fits snugly in the pocket. The gradual curve in the outline compliments the turned-up rail-line in the tail allowing loose smooth turns and more control when setting up for noserides. The slight roll in the bottom and flatter rocker creates smoother transitions and improved trim. The Mr. Rodgers performs in a variety of conditions but excels in points and beach breaks, especially if there’s a little punch. Average nose: 18”, Average tail: 16 ½”
LUNAR by Onde Nostre from The Seea on Vimeo.
Onde Nostre in collaboration with Seea present Lunar, a film featuring Leah Dawson in Fuerteventura. In this strange and beautiful treeless landscape of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, Leah Dawson's creative spirit has space to expand freely as she creates music, hand shapes her second board and dances on water with power and grace.
Grounded by earth and charged with energy by water, Leah Dawson is a solar creature influenced by the
moon’s gravitational pull, like the sea.
