Stubbie Sunday turned out to be pretty fun despite the onshore wind and crappy surf. Folks had a good time hanging out and trying new boards, while checking every so often where they stood in the silent auction for some of the boards I brought. Mr.Ken made sushi tacos and there seemed to be a lot of Kirin tall boys going around. Big thanks to everyone who made it all the way out to Hasaki Beach to share some waves and smiles!

We're going to be camping tonight at the Hasaki Campground just behind the surf spot and breakwater. Sei and I are going to barbeque so please come and find us in out little cabin. We'll have food and beer, so come and hang out Saturday night!

Here's a look at some of the hulls I'm bringing to Stubbie Sunday next weekend...stoked! Big thanks to Moonlight Glassing for getting these beauties finished in time for my flight!

Here's some pics of a new art collaboration I did with Alex Kopps. He wanted me to make one of these 7 years ago when I had my first shaping room in Oakland. Back then I had no idea where to even start on something like this. 1000 boards later and Alex finally gets his Dark Cloud...
