Went down to Shaper studios today in the south of San Diego and finished my board as i'll be leaving california in a week ... fast and intense work .. i shaped from head to toe in a day , its a mignature of a longboard future fixe singlefin double V concave tail to mid 6'Oat its highest point... I am addicted to shapeing i think .

Pretty edited short videos and seeing myself on the BIG screen in that Shed full of Hundreds of boards sourounding everybody was definetly and honour .
Been Working a creative exchange with mister master shaper Mani caro from Mandala surfboards .. He makes amazing kind of fishes , single fins with another vision of surfing that stick with longboarding . He landed me a board the other day for me to try and paint on it . Give it back when i leave caliland ... I am very happy about that collab .
The current South swell and off shore light winds in the mornings are the ones to catch if you wake up early ... Some of the days i am spending here are glassy all day but not as often as when i come in Fall . Spring in California is mixed up with lucky days and some windy ones but i have fun surfing on every conditions there ... Even a very windy Sano is still Good .
Here are some shots from Jack Belli . On one Morning surf with Mr Troy Elmore.
