Ocean Racer

 

First off much credit and respect go out to Richard Kenvin for bringing the mini-simmons  design back to life.  This is my version of the stringer-less poly dual fin, which I call the OCEAN RACER.   Both the rail line and bottom contours have been refined to my liking.

Here are some photos from my longtime friend Moose.  Looks for more photos from myself and friends.

 

Board of the Month

 

The board of the month is where an idea on a new shape goes to live.  Starting in January I will be featuring a shape that is not widely offered.  It's a one off that will be available for purchase. No substitutions no changes.

 

Blue Magazine

 

Sir Kyle Lightner shot Greg and Chris for an upcoming issue of Blue Magazine.  At this current moment Chris and Greg were discussing global issues such as matters pertaining to chicks.  Thanks for the photo Kyle.

 

Well Done Dane

 

Just short of ordering a pizza to the podium Dane's acceptance speach was just as much inarticulate as it was awesome.

SURFER MAGAZINE recently did an article on how Greg prepares for hold downs. In fact there exact words were "big wave hellman"

For our “Ask A Local” column in the January 2011 issue of SURFER, we asked and the 2009 Eddie Aikau event champion the best ways to physically and mentally withstand long bouts underwater. While we used part of his response in print (on newsstands December 1, 2010) his explanation was so thorough we thought we’d share it in full here.

“When I started riding big waves I read an article that said to survive a massive wipeout, your mental preparedness will be just as important as your physical conditioning. After over a decade of pushing myself in challenging conditions, I can tell you that this statement is absolutely true.
