This is Scrubs....don't really know his real name but it doesn't matter anyway...he is picking up his new death machine. It's 56 x 19 3/4 x 2 1/2 ..13 in the nose and 16 1/2 in the tail. This original design was done in collaboration with my friend Nat....he has now modified it to be called the Albat Ross...,but back to the death machine.... the nose rocker is typically quite low at 3 1/2 " with a decent concave feeding into a massive double and out through a vee at the tail. There is quite a bit of thickness at the tail and with the vee, puts you on rail easily even though it's wide at 8". The wide point in the plan shape is 4"back from centre giving you a nice pivot point between your feet. The volume is loaded towards the tail....this board was the fore runner and inspiration to the Tug Boat.

This is my mate Steve picking up his new board. It's a HP mal that is 91 x 22 1/2 x 2 5/8 .... the nose is 17 7/8 and the tail is 14 1/4. The HP stands for High Performance....I know really original hey but if you can come up with a good name just let me know....anyway this has a lot of rocker in it nose 5 1/4 and the tail has has a hefty 3 7/8 that allows you to surf tight in the pocket. This is based on the boards that I have been doing for Beau Nixon and is for the crew that want to take the short board approach to long boarding. Steve has a lot of fun on my boards and with the custom artwork done by Morgan when he was here a couple of weeks beaming!
