Aussie '68

Ruby just picked up his new Aussie '68 from glasser/repair master/Doho legend Pete Casica and couldn't be more stoked. Measuring out at 8'7" x 23" x 3 1/8" with a thick foil and the Aussie '68 signature concave to extreme vee, this baby paddles like a ten footer and turns like an 8'0, even noserides like a champ. Photo evidence to come soon…

Alright folks, time for a little history lesson. For those of you who love the risingly popular mini-simmons style boards, sit back and take a few notes, here's where they came from. Hailing from Los Angeles, Bob Simmons ran into quite a few health problems early on, with doctors diagnosing a tumor in his ankle, saying he'd need to have it amputated. Not pleased with the doctor's opinions, his mother went to an alternative practitioner, who suggested a healthy and rigorous diet. As Simmons adhered to the diet, he rode his bicycle to strengthen his legs. Tragedy would strike again, however, in the form of a car accident. Simmons was hit by a car and was hospitalized with a broken leg, a broken elbow, and a fractured skull. While his head and his leg healed, his arm was wired together loosely and wasn't at full strength. He was suggested surfing as physical therapy, and began paddling one of Tom Blake's paddleboards. Due to his physical state, Simmons struggled with the heavy, 75-100 pound, redwood boards of the era. As it were, necessity is the mother of all creativity. Simmons had a degree in engineering from Cal Tech and worked as a mathematician for Douglas Aircraft. He began to apply the principals of hydrodynamic theory (which is very similar to aerodynamic theory) to his surfboard designs, and began experimenting with the new space age materials of the time, styrofoam and fiberglass. Simmons created some of the first "sandwich" construction surfboards, drastically reducing the weight and opening the door for the lightweight balsa longboard. Simmons experimented with other aspects of design that are now considered commonplace, such as concave, aspect ratios, board weight, rocker and nose kick, the twin fin, and more. Gordie Duane and Bob Simmons worked together on many of these boards, calling them "maxi-simms". Steve, having shaped for years with Gordie, crafted this beauty of a surfboard in similar fashion, adhering to the same principals that Bob Simmons used on his designs. EPS foam (styrofoam) and epoxy resin, spoon nose with plenty of kick, glassed on twin fins, and a wide, maneuverable tail. Steve's replica measures out at 10'6" x 25 1/2" x 3 3/4", and is on it's way to Japan for one very happy customer.

Master of Style

This five stringered beauty of a surfboard just came in yesterday and we're just droooolllliing over it. Stylemaster model, 9'6" x 23 1/2" x 3 1/8", five stringers, pin tail, volan glass and a gloss finish. It doesn't get any more classic than this.

It's International Surfing Day, and seeing as the waves suck and yet everyone is out in the lineup, we figured you could at least look at the hottest surfer alive.

Splittin' Seeds

We loved the Infinity Gold Label single fin so much we decided to make a bigger one, keeping at our recent mid length frenzy. 7'2" x 21 1/2" x 2 7/8" Gold Label Pumpkin Seed, downturned rails, single fin box, and a bitchin' split jade and blue opaque on the deck.

Aussie '68

Ruby was so amped on Steve's Aussie '68 vee bottom design, he decided to work with Steve on one for himself. These things are designed to be ridden much shorter than your typical longboard (upwards of a foot shorter), so he went 8'7" x 23" x 3 1/4", to cut the length a bit without sacrificing the volume the 8'10" in-shop demo has. Stay tuned…

Swing by the shop and check out the 8'10" demo. She's here for you to try, after all the Aussie '68 is a pretty radical and technical design, we wouldn't want anyone unsure about this thing. So come on down and give her a go, we promise you'll dig it.

Alright folks, two of our favorite bands, Douglas and the Furs and the Budrows, will be performing together at the Commonwealth in Fullteron tonight at 9pm. Both bands have been killing it as of late, with the Furs on a hot streak, this being the second show of their residency at the Commonwealth, and, as the video below shows, playing a surprise show on the garage rooftop of the Wiltern after Jack White's show last week. The Budrows have been layin' down their foot-stompin' cigar box blues all over Southern California, playing shows at The Redwood Bar in LA, Avalon Bar in Costa Mesa, along the Sunset Strip, and more. So come on out to the Commonwealth tonight and see two of the best up-and-coming artists around (and plus, it's free, so there's no excuse for "not havin' the cover charge").

Also, check out Jason Farthing's (of the Budrows) hand made cigar box guitars, which are his instrument of choice in all the Budrow's sets:

Jason Kenworthy, surf photographer extraordinaire (think Bruce Iron's flare barrel shot) and team photographer for the Nike team, has fallen in love folks...with the Tombstone. He's been putting some serious time in with our smallest sled and it's paid off in the form of some damn impressive surfing. He's been so stoked he's been passing it on to everyone around him, including Koa Smith (lastnamefirst.tv/). Here's Koa blowin' tail with a nice frontside punt. We've got a full run of these puppies from 4'10" to 5'6" to don't wait, cause we can promise they'll be gone soon.
