merry xmas

it has been quiet for a long time on this page. so it was in the shaping bay. my studies and the second girl (recently born) keep us busy. the studies will be finished by end of february. i am looking forward to this moment and hope to post asap updates of new boards.

our dear sgc member toby will take off to an adventure in a couple of days. he'll regularly post news about his trip around the world. the boards are already packed, yeah! check out his blog while he's on the way to paradise...


it seems that mr. fisher isn't used to handle a beer and a baby. haha, i can do that better!! 

merry xmas!

beat the crowd, surf in the afternoon

this might be not a valid slogan for the ocean or crowded surfspots. but that type behavior works at bremgarten when everbody else needs to work on a friday afternoon at 2pm :-) i enjoyed a quick session with the ant II and 6 other surfers.

a good way to start the weekend!

hendaye 2013, done

the waves were not the best during the week in hendaye. therefore we spent most of the sessions in bidart. still a great week with the growing (sgc) family. the house was HUGE and at a stunning location. food across the border in spain tasted great, so did the wine/cidre. barbecues in the backyard were big fun too.

beside my 6'6'' shortboard i brang the new ant II (5'9'') model which was a great choice for this week. it paddles really easy into the waves and turns nicely even in mushy conditions. it still makes me stoke to surf my own boards in the atlantic ocean!

to be continued in 2014!

this morning we visited deus at canggu to have a look at their boards and bikes. great work and absolute perfection! the banana pancakes at their cafe were a nice "supplement". life is soooo bagus!

plug party

finally i moved my ass in the shaping bay again. worked on the ant board and did set the plugs (leash & go pro). once the resin will be delivered next week i can do the gloss coat on the bottom.

toby will come over the next days. he recently purchased two al merrick sticks for his trip around the world. obviously, the guys at the airport on his way back from portugal handled the boards not very well. looking forward to do the ding repairs.

pimp my bookshelf

our dear friend and member of SGC jesus converted his diaries into a book. what a great surprise to receive a copy of the book this weekend. although it is written in spanish i really enjoyed the spanish gift. it is well illustrated with pictures from jesus' adventures to the sea which we all have been a part of.

MUCHAS GRACIAS AMIGO! looking forward to be part of your stories in the future and further share the stoke.

ci surfboards are always an inspiration. kelly and dane just got their quiver for the quik pro in australia.

ant - reloaded

i'm currently working on a progression of the ant shape which worked very well in the river last season. i left the outline as it was and slightly adapted the bottom contours. the rocker entry is still flat but changes to a moderate single concave at the tail area. i reduced the overall volume and especially the thickness in the tail area. i'm very happy with the routing work i've done, the cleanest result ever achieved.

looking for a new summer board? it might be yours! :-)

dimensions of ant v2:
5'9'' x 22 1/16'' x 2 5/8''

2000+ visitors

if the stats of blogger.com don't lie, the landlocked surfboards blog already had 2000+ visitors.

thanks to all the visitors!


that's the spirit, kamchatka!

i was reading about this adventure far from the crowds in a surf magazine when i was traveling on a rainy and cold day to work. truly a great adventure to an unknown area in russia! check the video link below. you gonna love it!

the size of waves would really suit to my surf level, the cold water, language and expensive travel cost probably not... :-)
