On! surfboard/ Kevin Hamor

Busy Holiday weekend behind us. Had a few customers pick up boards just in time for the thanksgiving weekend swell.
Kevin Hamor(pictured above)wrote in: Just wanted to let you know that I surfed my new board today and it worked insane! It was a little tough going back to a normal short board after 3 months of surfing the Rock Fish, but it went well. I attached a shot from the session

Rode my new board for the first time today in head-high at Bolsa.
I love it. Rode every wave I tried for and had no problem paddling and duck diving it.
It's maneuverable without being squirrelly. So much better than that tank I was riding!
Also, with that ample entry rocker, pearling was never a concern.
A job well done.

I really apreciate the response from customers. All to often I never hear from the customer until they need a new board. Usually by that time I can't remember what i shaped for them. Hope to have some more pics up soon.
Take care,Ed

Nice On! the eyes

Ant went down, but the crew did get some nice waves...

Not for the week stomach

We’ve always said that “someone” was going to get really hurt one day at One Palm…..

After an entire season of waiting, and countless trips to the island only to find 3 foot wave at the point, finally we turned the corner on Friday, Sept 11th, to find 6 foot perfection.

Me, Antman, Luke, Gene, and Ryan were all over it and Ant was the first to get one all the way. When he got back up to the line up, his eyes were popping out of his head with tales of the Sleepy Hollow section and its low tide cylinder with no water underneath. The next one I got, I went for broke too, and pulled into the dry jet engine sounding funnel down there. Forgot what that was like, as it’s been 14 months since anyone has been way down there flirting with foam ball death for 20 seconds + at a time.

When I got back to the top, Ant and I were psyching on our feat without injuries or broken boards. We both got a few more decent ones, but nothing else all the way…..yet.

A solid one came through and Ant was up….. off into the distance he went and out of sight. About 20 minutes later he came back up to the pack in Just Dreaming’s rubber duck. He held up his hand and the crew was just horrified. He’d gotten slammed down there…..same section that was previously named Mangina’s, after Kiwi Nick’s punctured 2nd anus a few years back.

Luckily there was a paramedic on one of the other boats that had the goods to irrigate and dress the wound. We tried to get a helicopter, but after an hour of trying (including Ant’s Dad trying from Oz and another guy trying to work things from Hong Kong ) we had to face the reality of a feral boat ride back to where an ambulance would be waiting about 3 & 1/2hours away. Another 4 hour ride to the hospital in Jakarta and plenty of morphine into the morning, Ant was headed to Singapore .

Ant has no feeling in his thumb, and not sure if it will come back. He is off work for a minimum of 2 months. Attached is the amazing work of plastic surgeon genius and 80 stitches, as well as $15,000. They expect that not all the flesh will set, as it was so long before surgery, and that skin graphing will be the answer if it doesn’t. I can already hear the jokes if Ant’s ass is graphed onto his hand….

Below are a few shots of the next few days, after we got back out there.

Mangina’s section is now called No Palm.

Surf Report Aloita Surf resort Mentawi Indonesia

Mate….’tis not the cover of 89 surfer….but…..this is 2009……!!!
30 years ive aspired to get this far…….,%202009.

A perfect example of backhand tube riding. Unidentified, seriously shacked on the weekend.

Huge late season swell pushed through, began about a week ago, initial fri taster then kicked in bigtime by Sun avo, we went nth on SAT….hope of rifles, but wind was serious SE. Nabbed a couple at ebay, then went back to bumpy Sipora.
Next day was firing though…..and the brunt of swell was the 2 days after, when we settled for the uncrowded (just two boats anchored there!) G4….was pretty darn good, solid 6ft funwalls with speed and a bit of grunt. Surfed the nipple, hookers was 8ft and cloudbreak esque, heavy end sectiony. Tikkus was all time if wasn’t for wind. 2 boats anchored and all over it for 2 days. Teles 6ft and piping, quite a stiff cross off wind on it, plus 7 boats. We got the best of it really. Scuzz on it whole time too. Ice was out of control……too windy, otherwise…….fark!

Now…..the remnants of this 4 day SSW pulse, have been obliterated by a severe N NW equatorial squall….which has ruined any attempt of picking up any swell scraps.

Howling nth winds…….20-30 knots, as hard as ive seen….(ive said that 3 times this year!), and relentless, 48 hrs and hasn’t eased. Heaps of rain too.

Half the staff left for holidays, got a Italian dive group here to suss out place, talking it up, looking positive, few stray punters, and the Russians on horizon. Looks like the sthn Indian is brewing up some more goodies to fling this way too.

What’s in stall for coming wet……and into 2010 ???

Whatever on offer, it’s sure sounding good!

Stay tuned.

Here's a couple more pics of Dave Garfinkle surfing Hurricane Bill in New York. I think Dave might give Crowbar Kenny or Steve Thomas a run for their money.

Dave Garfinkle's New york

Dave Sent me these pics of the surf at his local break during hurricane Bill. He sent captions with the pics, but I got confused and couldn't make a story out of it. Anyways... most of the pics are of him. Dave, who was the bald guy dropping in on you? Tell him we think he's a kook.

September is coming!

September is almost here and finally the waves have started cooperating with some consistent swell over the last week. It appears that the east coast has enjoyed some good surf from hurricane Bill. Hopefully I'll get some shots to post from it soon. I've decided to publicize Spencers claim that he will surf Mavericks this winter. All right then Spencer... The world knows your plan, no backing out now! I'm looking forward to mowing into some big blanks for him so that he is equipped and ready! If any one has some Important news, forward it on and I'll get you on the blog.

Shapers Blog

Fall is coming. Its time to restock your quiver. One never knows exactly what to expect as far as waves for the coming season. However, last year , fall was unreal. Don't wait until the waves are four to five foot and cranking to decide you neeed a step- up board. Order now and avoid the price hike. Its coming soon!!
