Tom W’s “Flashpoint surfing Hart design

kneeboard in for a little surgery:)

Above is the damage shot of this kneeboards tail.

So I’ve rebuilt the tail and glassed it with multiple layers of 6oz top/bottom,

just like its original construction.

Love this shape…

Its 24 inches wide!

blows the theory of narrow boards for steep waves right out the water!

This¬†Kneeboard ¬†is designed for serious waves…

FCS fin plug install

Can you see the light?

An example of FCS fin plug installation guidelines being followed,

it amazes me how some new boards don’t have their fin plugs

installed correctly or symmetrically.

I was taught to follow the saying..

“Measure twice cut once”



 The result of surfing our local reefs,

Jurassic coastline power.

Ben from The Wessex Surf Club 

 brought it to me for surgery.

All completed with the stringer reinforced + new leash plug and a

glass job that is a third stronger than the original,

4+4oz top 4oz original glassing to the tail

now 6+6oz top 6oz bottom.

Also Ben’s a goofy foot hence the leash plug positioning with in turn

maintains the strength in the rear tail area.

Ben’s Fluid Juice Quad Fish Surfboard

with a fin slash to the tail.

Thinking of fins had you heard the one about:

If fish lived on land, which country would they live in? 


A fish swam into a wall and said, ‚ÄúDam!‚ÄĚ

Where do fish wash?…In a river basin

What day of the week do fish hate?…Frydays
