Matt Millers 8'7'' Super Smoothie, this was mine and I loaned it to him for feed back and he would not give it back, Pinhead ! so Greg made me another.


Greg made 2 of these for Matt and I, they work really well, they work like a longboard when its small, but you can still crank them over on rail when its bigger. Old Liddle crew , Tom Fisher and Tony Masial worked on these templates.

Matt low tide sand speed run.

Uh-O runnin out of water, tuck and duck, jeez he can still get pretty low for an old fart.

Steve came our way for a visit and art show from his new digs in Santa Fe , New Mexico . Some one told us about this tag around Cardiff so we checked it out, then a cop pull up and wants to see ID, hands up and spread um boys.

Surfed out in front of Bongobay Albo's house and Steve snapped a few of me on my 9'1'' Vaquero.

Surfed for a few hours and played bocce ball and had a few beers , good to see them a fun time was had by all.

This is a custom 7'0'' with extra thin rails, the template is a GL/JS very similar to the board Greg is turning in the last post.

Outline, Im still figuring out my new camera , just found a big smug print on the lens after I checked these shots .

Deck, these new us blanks with the medium weight are way stronger.

Bottom, got a nice 101 bamboo fin in GL's template to try out.

A few more snaps from the Brown Bros. super 8 's, Andy Davis cutting back, he was the glasser for Greg at this time. He used to scare me when I was younger, he laughs at me when I tell him this now 40+ Years later.

Juan Estaban Bojorquez 111 , layin down some rail, I shot these with my new cam off the TV I like the way they blur.

I think this is Andy Davis again. Weird, over time good hull surfing is kinda timeless .

This one is Krajewski on JAWS, now thats a cutback!! he made it too!

Steve agian, textbook SK turn with the stringer almost parallel with bottom of the wave. Steve was the sander and fin foiler at this time and would walkout of the back sanding room and never blow him self off and leave a white dusty fiberglass trail all over the shop, and got the nickname DIRT!! the name stuck along with the fiberglass itch he left everywhere.

Been seeing a few photos on blogs as of late and a lot of weak pussyfooted turns, this is Greg at Malibu around 73 or 74 and is a textbook hull turn IMO. #1 drive the board down the face with your feet parallel across the stringer.

#2 set your line and press over with even pressure with your upper body leading the way and bank that baby over on rail, loading the fin up.

#3 now the fin is laoded up and the rail is engaged and your ready to spring out of that turn and site where you want to go next. Thats a 7'0'' GL template Greg still makes. These are off a 8mm film by Mike and Ricky Brown, thanks guys!!!
