MIDLENGTH EVOLUTION

These are 8'0''s that Tony Masiel, Steve Krajewski and I started riding as we got older ('' and wiser'' ) with a few of the Hull Tribe.



Tony came up with the template, that one in front he shaped me when Liddle moved to Hawaii and he stopped making boards for a few years . I rode the crap out of it for years and it's still in service , Kopps just took it to Mexico to film, hence the 2# of new Bondo!



The second from left is Steve's last Liddle before Greg moved, the 3rd from left is a bit before that , this one, is one of my favorites . The last one is a Anderson, Bojorquez which is just an evolution on the 8'0'' midlength boards we all did together.




Tony is still refining this board , such a great underground hull shaper, still shaping and glassing all his boards himself . He like's side fins , Steve and I went back to one fin later on, but I like the 2 plus one because you can really use a twangy center fin, but have the side bites to hold.

    What's going on with the bondo? Are you leveling out pressure dings? Is it waterfroof?
