I've been inspired and in awe since I first saw these boards. They deviated so far for the norm of any era. Not until now have we as a surf community attempted to understand and apply his concepts to a practical modern surf craft.
I have always loved to experiment and challenge my shaping skill and this board does that. The first one I shaped was a balsa 8'0'' twin keel for Sean Mattison about three years ago.
This board is 5'3" with a spoon nose, slight displacement forward, and a singe concave out the tail. I really tried to keep to the original concept. The only difference is the single foiled fins with a more modern cant . I foiled these fins myself out of red wood to give a More unique look.
