Darwin Island

8/04/10

We don't actually have any involvement with this film other than the fact that a very beautiful young lady is riding an SB in it. By the way, the waves in this teaser are ridiculous. Looks so fun. The girl comes on around 48 seconds in.

Bass US Open Quiver

8/03/10

Just met up with Bass last night in Newport and dropped off 3 freshies for him to try and ride in the US Open. This batch was a little different than his last few batches because they were shaped with Huntington Style slop in mind.

Far Left Board: 6'1" x 18 1/2" x 2 1/4" SeaGull 2 - Round Squash

Bass has gotten a lot bigger over the last year, so Steve decided to get him on something quite a bit bigger than what he is used to. This is a full 1/4" wider than what he has been riding and 1/16" thicker. This will most likely be his go to board for punchier surf.

Middle Board: 6'1" x 18 1/2" x 2 3/16" SeaGull 2 - Round Squash

This is a little closer to what Bass has been riding for the last year except it is a 1/4" wider and the newer version of the SeaGull. Steve has been working on a updated SeaGull model for quite awhile now and this is the result. A little bit deeper single concave, slightly flatter entry rocker, same pulled in nose template and tapered rail.

Far Right Board: 5'10" x 19" x 2 3/8-" Piggy - Wide Squash

The Piggy model has been one of our best selling models in Japan for a few years and is just now becoming very popular in the USA. It is basically a Pic with flatter entry rocker, wider nose and tail, and a slightly boxier rail. Geared towards smaller, mushier waves. This will be Bass' go to board if it is a classic Huntington swell for this year's US Open.

All Bass' boards have Future Fins and have the following glass job: 4 - 4 3/4 Oz Deck, 4 Oz Bottom. Top and Bottom layers S-Cloth
