I put together a little video to go with my new track. It's made up of clips from all my favourite surf movies:
North Shore
Endless Summer
Big Wednesday

There's some old vintage surf stuff in there too. Enjoy!

Track produced by James Earp.

Enjoy Björn's story...

NOTE: After this video was created Bjorn has tested the board, and he reports that its working great!

"The board is stable, easy to paddle and catch waves with. And it is such an amazing thing to ride something that you have made yourself. There really is something special about it, all the hardwork put down finally pays off."

Finless Fighters by DEUS Bali

in, Deus Bali

A humble request and a not so humble carve

Thank you guys so much for all of the pledges and the encouragement during the fundraiser; we're in the final 3 days now and the project has a healthy beating heart with over 100 backers and I'd love to get the funding to build the body to make it get up and run so share it as much as you can and lets finish this thing off right!

Please share the link with anyone and everyone, its a good cause and spamming people is a-ok when it's not please, help me spam the internet and get the project out of my head and into foam, the art gallery, and finally into the hands of the very capable people at Save Naples!

Just copy and paste this link and bingo bango, you've helped out!

R.I.P. Terry Martin

"We have lost a legend..." in, Wooden Surfboards

Daniel Costa - "The Southern California shaping world has lost one of its forefathers today with the death of beloved Dana Point shaper Terry Martin. Martin shaped surfboards for more than 60 years, most of them with Hobie Surfboards, before losing his battle with melanoma at the age of 74. He will be missed." in, The Retro Movement

Tribute to Terry Martin by Tyler Manson and Tyler Warren

a brief history: TERRY MARTIN from Tyler Manson on Vimeo.
Terry Martin's first encounters with surfing, shaping and crashing motorcycles.

"Terry Martin is probably the best shaper to ever live. Considering he has hand shaped over 80,000 boards in his lifetime for people such as Gerry Lopez, Phil Edwards, Shawn Stussy, Hobie, Dale Velzy, Stewart and many more. Terry saw the evolution of the surfboard first hand through the shaping bay from wood to light foam. He could make anything and it would work, whether it was a modern shortboard or noserider. He understood water flow and what a surfboard needs to do - to make a surfer have fun. He was the Santa Claus of shaping, joyfully hand making all his toys for his children. Terry, you will be missed by many."
