You all know Mark Thomson as a controversial speed blur on a mat, but he's also a hell of a shaper and quite a free thinking one at that. He does a lot with carbon fiber which is fine by me. This here is twin tip drongo with a reverse nose, and it's only a peek at what Mark's got going on in the shed.

Mackie 6'3" S-deck Stub For Sale

Yes, yes and yes indeed. Brand new Mackie collected from the courier not an hour or so ago. 6'3" x 21.5" x 2.75" S-deck single fin with a volan deck patch, $850. Quite a lovely thing, you could carve your turkey with those rails and probably shave with the hand foiled flex fin. Outstanding, young Michael Mackie is an absolute craftsman. Happy Thanksgiving indeed. Email info @ foamandfunction.com for more info.
(Excuse the photos as it's a holiday and I've been at the Buffalo Grass Vodka.)

A nice few minutes of pre-Holiday shenanigans via Kevin of December Snowskates and his friends at Boyd Hill. This looks fun, especially if you get one of those outfits.

A Few More....

More Mackie stuff, it's just that there's been a wealth of images coming from that quarter and he got in touch yesterday to let me know there's a new board nearly done and soon to be on it's way up here. For a change, it's not a twin. Pictures soon, this one is going to be a beauty.

Simon & MIck by Andrew

Simon Anderson and Mick Mackie got together for a session, Mick with his new flextail boards which apparently impressed Simon. Pretty serious crew to surf with, thanks to Kidman for the photos. He's been keeping his site fresh with new photos, well worth checking out here. If you haven't scored a copy of 'Lost In The Ether' then now's the time to do it- there's not a lot left.

If you're in the vicinity of Wilmington NC this weekend, don't forget that Mick Waters' 'Little Black Wheels' will be playing at 7.15pm on Saturday at the Soapbox. If you aren't in NC you can still get a signed copy of the movie from us, $25 shipping included. Email info @ foamandfunction.com to order or ask questions.

To the north of us, it's starting to kick in seriously. Photos via Nils in France.

And to the south of us, it's over but went out with a bit of a bang dumping snow and sending a decent late season swell that lit up a few spots. These photos via Mick Mackie. Here in the middle, it's cold and raining. Always bodes well for a few solid NW's coming in...

More Video

From RT this time. He says full screen and toggle to 720 which certainly works. The wave around 3.15 is fantastic, and there's a lot of good waves here.
