Tardy..................

We have been very busy the last couple of months moving house. We haven't moved far but the energy it takes is amazing and it all happened in a blurr. Posting on here has been put on the back burner. We are now settled in and enjoying just tidying the place up and making plans for what to do with the house in the New Year. Even though the move was hectic I managed some good sessions at my local beach, the new board I made is fun and I have been thinking about what to make next, maybe a 5' 10" twin keel or an arctail quad, I can't decide.

Eggy Goodness.............................part two...................


One week later and the egg is glassed, sanded, pinlined, plug and box fitted and ready to gloss coat.
I happened to pick the hottest week of the year with garage temperatures of 33+, making timings critical.
This has been such a buzz, just wished I had got back into it years ago.
I based the Seahorse Designs logo on the periodic table chart which came to me while watching Breaking Bad.......and kindly tweeked by Sam in Edinburgh (honorable mention)

Already planning the next one but have to move house first, yet more stress........

Eggy Goodness..............

So, after a few weeks getting everything together I have come up with this.

6'6" x 21 1/2 x 2 3/4. Lots of foam and it will end up as a single fin.

Really pleased with the result.



Now on to the glassing, more decisions. Plain, colour, logos???????

Mandala Surfboards.......................

I really really covet Mandala surfboards.
I follow Many on Instagram and like every post, without fail.
If only I could afford one of his gorgeous creations.

Recently, I heard that my local surfshop, Adrenaline would be receiving a shipment from California. They are hard to find in Europe and seldom come up secondhand. I contacted Many and got a full list of the dream machines heading this way. They arrived last week via a circuitous route round the world.

Seven perfect pieces of art, four in the racks and three carefully hung on the wall. All there to tempt me with their perfect lines and perfect glassing. A 5' 10" single with a stunning high gloss burgundy tint keeps smiling at me and suggests it would be ideal for me. Sadly, at 1,180€, it must remain a dream. Both the price and the size are not ideal for me I think.

Maybe it would be cheaper to fly over to CA and buy a couple........................now there's an idea.
