Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in California in the 70s? This colourful clip of Alex Knost is about as close as any of us will ever get: women, waves and longboards. Life is simple here, just as it was then. It’s as though you don’t need much to be happy. Al is a polarising figure but regardless of your opinion, he sure knows how to read (and ride) a wave.  This is what California Summer means to Alex Knost.

 

Loving the usage of the Cheater 5 s 🙂

This Fanatic Hawk is a quality bit of kit –

very impressed with its construction the surfboard industry could learn a thing or two from windsurf technology.

This board required the nose tip and top area rebuilding.

I added a layer of 4oz over the whole area to maintain it’s strength.

This board was breaking down over the fin plug area –

very common if you can boost and land airs.

Rebuilt with layers of glass to local reinforcement.

All faired into the tail and tail pad re stuck.

Note these particular are of PRO weight glassing hence the trade off of performance vs durability.

If you want to fly go light 🙂

 Tail corner crushed.

Plus 2 FCS style FIN PLUGS needed replacing due to the impact from snapping both front fins.
