When your imported Californian Mandala gets it’s first ding

and you want it to disappear.

Enjoy Simon 🙂




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 🙂

Rich’s Mctavish fireball longboard


with two main dings, the rail ding from The infamous Bournemouth Pier Crowds and the second from a surf spot in California and lots of other little dings from Byron bay. Its been said each ding tells its own story:)


(Fin punctured the rail)

Forgot to take close ups – Its fair to  say repairs will always show though I try to hide them as much as possible, the extra fibreglass and resin required to produce a strong, lasting repair will by its nature have move material than the surrounding “original” construction – hence the slightly darker colour.

Enjoy Rich 🙂
