Check out the Nov/Dec issue of Smorgasboarder magazine where I drop a little insight and info into current Gun design and manufacturing.
I always got so excited when someone would ask me to make them a 6’10 or 7’6 gun, and I still do. But with the big wave shift moving from tow-in back to paddle-in, I cant believe how many boards I’ve shaped in the 9’0 to 11’6 range this past year. It’s hard work, but i’m loving it. It’s great to have the opportunity to work with some of the top big wave surfers in the world and work on the designs they’re wanting to ride. Bring on the Big Wave World Tour #BWWT.
