My boards begin with first quality blanks. I am using a variety of manufacturers and compositions. The polyurethane blanks are from King Mac, US Blanks, and Just Foam. The E.P.S blanks are from Shooting Blanks and Marko. My personal favorite blank is the Bio-Foam by Ice-Nine. The foam is eco-friendly, made from a base of sugar cane, and yet the blank still has superior performance. It is a solid, durable platform with good snap. I hope that this foam survives the current financial crunch.
All blanks are hand shaped to allow me a sense of creativity. I evolve my designs on a daily/weekly basis to suit seasonal conditions and the surfer’s needs and ability level.
All my glassing is done in Huntington Beach, and Costa Mesa at three different facilities with special talents to maximize the custom board.
