Blue Diamond

Busy day on Saturday. I got Mark's fish glossed, I finished shaping James' Fish, shaped the diamond tail and glassed the bottom in a superb shade of blue. Really excited about this board.  *update* Blue diamond tail has been hotcoated top and bottom.

Diamonds are forever

New shape. Loving the template. This one is 7 foot. Will have 6oz and a glassed in single raked fin.

Something that is truly missed with modern surfboards are pinlines. The art of laying a line of resin by hand is one that deserves the utmost respect. I had the distinct pleasure of working alongside pinline extraodinaire Larry Crow in San Diego. He taught me how but I still have a long way to go. All DHENRY pinlines are laid by hand (not always perfectly straight).

California Log

This is my log. Under the faithful care of my good friend Andrew Burns (he takes wicked photos) in San Diego. Check out the 1inch stringer. Nice. You can find more of Andrew's photos here
Here is Clarke Forrest, a staunch DHENRY supporter.

Burr Elm Keel Fins

Mark made these most amazing keel fins for his fish. Foiled ply in the tradtional way with Burr Elm veneer. Sexiest fins you will ever see right here at DHENRY.

A busy day in the shop

I got my board rough sanded. The 10oz glass turned out really nice with olive green and baby blue pigments. Next week it will receive some red pinlines. I also got a fish shaped for Mark and glassed it upside down with opaque grey/blue top and a black bottom with grey/blue swirls. Looks like space.

For Melba

Got crazy with some cherry blossom decals and coloured resin. Nice.

Super Mega Fin Wood

My aptly named stash of Super Mega Fin Wood has once again brought forth a Super Mega Fin. This time its a big ole hatchet.

Magic Red Fish

Welcome to my blog. Perhaps you will read my ramblings or perhaps you will just look at the pictures, either way I welcome you to discuss sliding and gliding with me. This little red slider knocked my socks off. One of those magic sticks. Inspired by those old San Diego foam mowers who were kind enough to let me watch. This is my  recipe, years in the making, like Colonel Sanders only faster. Built for Sunset Cliffs as intended by its forefathers. Cheers boys.
