Another fun, sunny day for a quick paddle.
Patti Almand on her first day of surfing, accompanied by her surf instructor in Newport Beach.
Patti lives in Virginia with her family and came out to California to visit her grand parents in
Orange County. Looks like this won’t be her last time in the ocean. She’s a natural.
Here are some pictures of a board I recently shaped for my friend, Bill Sanders of Laguna Beach. He wanted me to take the Mini Simmons and make some subtle changes. He wanted the board to have a slightly pointed nose and add a set of Futures Twin Fins, rather than the standard glass-ons that are used more frequently. Here are some images Bill sent me to give people an idea of it’s features. It has a rolled bottom up in the nose area, blending into a flatter bottom thru the center of the board with a single concave between the fins..
