Asymmetric twinzer with tidy Mondrian-esque art from Rob Royal, mad little asym bonzer from Tim Stafford I believe.

Young John in the UK has built himself a very tidy looking carbon tech spoon. That's the third kneelo craft I've seen of late which is a very good board trend to my mind. John's working on a wooden version and Chris in HI has a brace of the things in his quiver along with some south swell at present so I'm hoping for a ride report soon.......

MP's Mum

There's a really nice little interview by Michelle Lockwood with Michael Petersen's Mum over at Big Sky Wire, conducted on the 1st Anniversary of MP's passing.

Sultan of Speed Jnr.

In case you've not seen it over at the Deus Bali blog, Joel Fitzgerald has been spending a bit of time in the vicinity of Canggu, and shaped himself this very stylish looking single fin. Then he went out and surfed it like it was a quad. Genetics are staying true with that family.

Mark Thomson of Krypt Surfmats has swung a setup where if you order a mat from him, he'll ship it anywhere in the world free. Courier style, just a few days rather than the usual weeks of waiting for the postie to show up. Everybody should have a surfmat, so if you're in a place where such things aren't so easy to come by, get on this. The mat will improve your wave riding experience without fail, and that's testimony from a fully converted belly slider.

Lis-> Frye -> Kidman-> Whibley

Kidman finished Paul's fish, built with a template taken from his own Frye fish, and I think everyone involved, from the guy who's lost longboard provided the material for the the first fish on up to good old Wibz, can be very proud of this one. Simon Jones on the glassing again- he does some lovely work.
