Neal Purchase Junior Surfboards!




Finally it's happening with getting some of Neal Purchase Jnr.'s boards up to the US! There's a last minute being put together at this moment- Neal's in the shaping bay and mowing away happily before he decamps to France for a shaping stint there, and as the dual stringer Duo in the above photo shows, things are looking good. Email info @ foamandfunction.com if you're interested.....

6'2" Parmenter Channeled MPegg For Sale


Mad awesome! 6'2"x20.75"x2.5", MPegg outline with 6 channels and a widow maker fin setup! What's not visible in a simple photo, especially my chimp-with-an-instamatic style photos, are how good Dave Parmenter is at the whole surfboard shaping business. The foil is amazing, the wide point is forward and just standing there it looks fast, there seems to be a bit more rocker than the standard MPegg and there's a bit of a beak nose rather than the more rounded old school MP style. Epic board, beautiful Waterman's Guild tint work and i's here and available for a very reasonable $800 because it was a custom, but the customer decided that it's not sky blue, or at least not the sky blue he envisioned. If you want this or info about it of Parmenter fins email info @ foamandfunction.com.

sorry, it's sold.....

(Important custom board note- either give your glasser a colour chip if you want something specific, or go with what their fume addled colour mind comes up with. I'm spoiled with Waterman's Guild as they do insanely high quality work which counts more than colour for me- I usually just say 'red' or 'yellow' or whatever and let it happen)

На данный момент уже снят эпизод 2 весна в Сочи и мы ищем финансовой поддержки нашего эксклюзивного проекта!


Apologies for the lag in posts of late, but travel and sketchy wi-fi connections will do that. It's on a gain, and there's some great stuff here- new Mackies, new Parmenter fins, new Parmenter boards and  the full range of Kidman's 'Spirit Of Akasha' product is setting here ready to be sold as soon as pricing is sorted out- CD's and vinyl of both the 'Morning Of The Earth' and Spirit Of Akasha' soundtracks as well as DVDs, and the really good new Windy Hills CDs. Stoked! In the meantime, here's some surf travel goodness- the far corner of Russia (which makes me feel so weak for grumbling about having to endure a bit of traffic to surf crappy closeouts) and a nice shot of one of the last Mackie flextails, courtesy of Wibz who's at the other end of the globe. It's all out there....
