The Neal Purchase Jnr. Wolfhound fins are just perfect for those of you who favour the sort of boards that have been posted over the last few weeks, so in the name of doing things right, we're making them available in the US. The culmination of Purcho's many years of refining and developing what he wants in a single, you can't go wrong. There's still a few left in the beer tinted 7.5" or bottle tinted 8.5", and they run $110. Email info @ foamandfunction.com if you're interested......

Sidecut tri? Yes Please! Then another shot of the epic Smooth Glide that is in California and for sale, and a nice shaping image to give you idea of what's happening with those boards. Well done Ulladulla! Apologies for the lack of attention to this, a temporary thing while having been slammed busy the last few weeks. There's interesting stuff afoot though, a new venture and retail space where hopefully these boards will be available to view and fondle.....

Axel is the proverbial lucky bastard. Not only does he live in Anglet, a truly lovely town in the south of France with a wonderful Gascon/Basque history and a string of great little beachies with Biarittz and the Cote Basque to the south and Hossegor, Lacanau etc. to the north, but he just got this Mackie quad kneelo to ride at them. Factor in all those great boulangeries, the local cheese and Bordeaux just up the road and I am seriously jealous. Have fun Axel....

At the top: Fresh from the master himself in Ulladulla, a 7'10" x 21 3/4" x 3" Smooth Glide. Massively fun looking, bit of pinch in the rails but foam where it counts. It'll paddle easy and absolutely fly Comes with either Greenough or a Salty Merchants Matte Black flex fin. $1000
Below: 6'3" x 21" x 2 3/4" Stub. Again with some beautifully thought out foam distribution along with seriously knifey rails, an s-deck and a super foiled flex fin made by Mick. Not a beginner/intermediate board at all, but in the right hands this is going to be a bullet. Old exchange rate price too- $775

The channel bottom Parmenter single fins featured in the previous post are also the design featured in Andrew Kidman's 'Single' project. Dave Parmenter was documented shaping one of the boards for Steph Gilmore, who then rode it with incredible style and grace, all of which was filmed for the 'Spirit Of Akasha' project. Frame grabs and photos from the session were then collected into this excellent 84 page book along with essays from Andrew & Dave and an interview with Steph. Limited to 1000 copies, signed & numbered and only available direct, we're fortunate to have a few copies for sale at $55. Email info @ foamandfunction.com to order or query as always. Thanks for supporting the small press culture.

Yes indeed! The new batch of Parmenters has rolled off the racks at Waterman's Guild, and those involved have definitely excelled themselves. You can't have the two at the top as they're custom orders, but there's 2 6 channels and an MP disc up for grabs. Individual shots coming, but here's a teaser. Very happy with these guys indeed, and as usual email info at fomandfunction.com for more details.....
