If a bar of wax gets sold in the park...

...redirect affect.

5'9" GeeBee by Mr. Brian Hilbers of Fineline. An 'under your feet' hull to be shredded off the tail in 2-plus-1 fashion...($OLD to Jason F!)



Calling all enthusiasts, Greg Liddle in the haus! Check this rare 6'3" hull-shredder with resin wrap!?! Believe it Kenny G! We only have one, like Rick Kane and sugar cane...($OLD to Michael R.!)



6'3" is becoming a magic number around these parts, here's a Fineline MP for all your total involvement surfing needs. Creep up over the belly for hull-hum sweetness or step back and burn a cutty like only MP could...



During a visit to the Swift HQ in downtown San Diego we somehow convinced Richard Kenvin to come back to NY with us. Here he is in front of the shop sporting a Fish Fry tee (he and Bird Huffman started the damn thing!) with a 5'1" Simmons-inspired displacement hull shaped by Joe Bauguess. Part of the Hydrodynamica test pilot series, not for sale but RK's flirting with the idea of leaving it as a demo.


With RK in town a shred sesh was in order. Who wouldn't want to surf with the guy who beat Occy, Curren and Rabbit at OB Pier in '83? We piled a bunch of boards into a cab and headed south to Clams' Grandma's place in Bensonhurst--home of the fresh muhtz! Here's Dutchie reflecting in the backseat...


Clams and a bespeckled RK, real and reflected...


Clams waxing up one of his own shapes, a Grey Ghost kine 5'5" keel...


Richard prepping the 5'1" for an epic and embarrassing drop-in session. Hey kids remember to look before you burn a legend!



Post-surf chicken roll at Elegante's with Gabba Goul Mickey. Don't forget the sauce!
