End of summer, one more board

The end of summer has arrived and fall is in the air. As usual, I didn't write on the blog over the summer, just been too busy enjoying myself. Besides trips to Canada and Singapore, I've surfed pretty well every day for the past 2 months. Tons of two session days as well. It hasn't been great wave-wise, but it's been fun enough with a few good days thrown in; can't complain when the water's warm and there's something to ride. Overall, another glorious Hokkaido summer.

I'm working on my last board of the season, trying to get it done and glassed while the air is still warm enough for the resin to cure. It's a six foot fishy outline, but without a deep swallow tail. I'm going to chop the tail and go for a wide squash tail. That way I can run it as a single fin, or set it up as a twin or quad. The 6' Simmons I made works well enough, had a real good time on it this morning, so I'm continuing with the short fat approach, just with a pulled in nose and more curvy outline this time. Here's a pic of where I'm at now. I hope to have it done in the next two weeks.
