A visit from Chris Del Moro this May.

Chris is making another visit to Australia this May. He'll be spending the first part of his trip in Byron Bay for the premier of his good mate Dave Rastovich's movie, MINDS in the Water. He'll then make a quick trip south to Sydney for a couple of days so keep an eye out for him. If we have the time, we'll be calling into Deus Ex-Machina Camperdown, Heritage Surf and Six Ounce Board Store Manly. Come say hello. Happy Days...

Minds in the Water on Youtube

I'll be in Byron when the premier of MINDS in the Water will be showing, looks like it's going to be a worth while flick. I wouldn't call myself a tree hugger but like most surfers I do care about the waters we spend so much time in.

9'7" Bing "OT" Pintail

I've been waiting to get one of these "OT" Bing Pintails since I saw one while I was in CA last year. It was a board built for Icons of Surf so I had to wait my turn. This one will be for sale when it arrives in OZ around early to mid June.

Description: "OT" stands for Original Template modeled after the original late 60s Bing Pintail outline with the wider point further back, slight step nose & concave, volan glassing, round 50/50 rails into a slight edge in the tail. Stringer: Cedar + black high density foam + yellow high density foam + black high density foam + cedar.

Sounds good!!!

An original 1968 Bing Pintail with the same stringer set-up.

Resin delights

I thought I'd finished unwrapping boards for a little while but these delights arrived this week. The BN Lightweight with the Mexican blanket nose + white opaque body looks amazing and the 7'0" & 7'8" Lovebirds feel so nice. I grabbed one for myself and can't wait to get it wet. Shoot me an email if you see something that takes your fancy.

***So Many Bings***

Delivered another batch of Bings and a couple more Almonds to Six Ounce today. Definitely the best display of Bings in Australia and possibly further. Call in and run your hands over these gems and talk boards to Ben , Roberto and Taylor. Plenty of demos for your pleasure as well.
