Frames



I have a selection of limited edition numbered prints available for sale at Adrift Surf Shop & The Glass Onion Society if you're keen to take a peek. They're both rad establishments & I'm stoked to be on board with them.

Ancient Curves



I just finished making this traditional 8'10" alaia from a single slab of cedar. It was a deep pleasure & therapy to work with such beautiful timber. I get goosebumps just thinking about getting these ancient curves running across a wave. Thanks to Paul & Sage Joske for the inspiration, & my little Noa for the shots.

Finding



There's an 8'10" alaia hidden somewhere in that old slab of cedar. I'm looking forward to finding it.

Gernika



Collecting footage for my next film a few months ago on market day in Gernika, with my firstborn, Noa. My great grandmother was killed here in 1937, when Franco's Nationalists deliberately chose the busy market day to bomb the quiet, rural village. For lots of reasons, revisiting Gernika with my little family was a poignant moment. Photo by my dear brother Xabi.

Hey Ho Let's Go Surfing

Here's a new short I produced for my friends at The Critical Slide Society:





Please feel free to share it on the interwebs with your friends. As always, thanks for watching.

Turning



Sage Joske, fine tuning the rails of a sleek log for Jack Lynch. This is always my favourite part of shaping, the final turning of the straight edges with a screen. All of a sudden, as if by magic, the lines disappear & are replaced by curves. It's as if the blank is instantly transformed into a surfboard before your eyes, & you start to imagine how water might wrap & hold & caress those curves. For me, it's a moment to savour.

Bonzer 5

UK filmmaker Lee Evans sent through this wonderful excerpt from his film 'Harmony Lane'. It really reminded me of how much I really need a Bonzer in my life.
