Greenough Stuff

I always liked this shot, GG at Flatrock, Aus. photo Greenough he had this weird camera arm on the front of this board.

Warm Jet, on a Liddle, Fat Bastard 6'0'' Velo template.

Greenough, I think at Point Cartwright Aus. on Velo, Witzig photo, another favorite.

Weird stuff I have , that blue boat is a GG 17ft Anderson, the other boat is his old Whaler , the Coop in his old slip in SB, this burned up in a fire sadly . That wood model he shaped at a very young age. Proto type Paddle fins .

High aspect fins by Greenough, mat photos of GG in Aus by A. Kopps.

Mr. Putnam Template 1981

I went thru a bunch of pics and found this shot by old amigo Alan Casagrande of my 7'8'' on the left and my Mr.Putnam 7' 6'' #1 on the right. I was a pool plasterer at this time and in the best shape of my life.

New Boards Pics

This came today a nice YELLOW? 7'6'' I think from a template I had a long time ago called Mr. Putnam
Very Vaquero lookin.
I found my original Mr. Putnam about 20 years ago and restored it and sold to a buddy, wish I had it back,DANG! IT, winter is comin.
Jim Shanks new ride a nice 6'8'' Death Board.
These new boards are glassed with the same Volan Larry uses for the Flex Fins, nice stuff.

Dave Lloyds Flextail

Dave Lloyds Flextail, I think this is from the 70's, those side fins were added later. Dave still owns this board, pretty cool.

8'0'' Liddle

Steve K. with a mid 80's 8'0'' Steve , Tony Masial and myself started to ride these as we got a bit older.
The 2 plus one let us ride a really flexible centerfin, but the side runners help hold if you got to a steep part of the wave
These were ordered for our friend Paul, he picked the Wider one on the left.
Wider template
Tonys original template, this ones for sale. The super smoothies are based on these curves. Later on Steve and I went back to one fin with a bit more area to make up for the side fins.
