    Surfboards By Roger Hinds

    Ask any surfer about Roger Hinds & his boards and they'll either get really excited or respond "who's that?" Roger has been the guy behind the scenes of surfboard brands such as Bear, Lighting Bolt, Blue Hawaii & Dewey Weber to name a few as well as Country Surfboards Hawaii which he had licensed in the mid/late1970's & still has today. I first became familiar with Roger Hinds about five years ago when I attended a Board Room Show in Del Mar, California. Just one glance at Roger's work he had displayed caught my eye without knowing his deep history in surfboard shaping, design & manufacturing. Surfboards shaped and glassed by Roger Hinds are 100% top quality as he does every detail himself. Since my introduction to Roger over five years ago, my friends & I were always eager to get one under our feet one day. Luckily for us we were able to finally find out what all the buzz was about, Roger had shaped three different boards for our crew of Compadres to try out in a variety of different waves. Earlier this month Roger stopped by our HQ in San Clemente CA. and dropped off a 7'0 Aussie V-bottom, 6'0 Single Fin Shortboard & a 5'4 Keel Twin Fin Fish. With years of shaping experience on the North Shore of Oahu & all over the world Roger is currently shaping boards back in Orange County (Seal Beach) were he's from. Be sure to check out his website rogerhindssurfboards.com order one up, & you will not be disappointed!

    January's consistent rainfall left us with not only a good run of surf but awakened many little nooks & crannies with all sorts of not necessarily new waves to surf but rare ones. Last Friday saw some epic conditions as the storms had past, the sun had peaked out and the winds all switched offshore. Everywhere seemed to be epic that day but a few friends from our tribe scored a true rarity. Local photographer and longtime friend @samschafer tagged along & here's a few special moments that he captured. @sanonofresurfco


    The wet & rainy weather this year has brought us lots of swell, but erosion along with it. Lately due to the pumping surf, heavy rain & gale force winds has caused a lot of damage(some good, some bad) to the California coast line & here at Sano, surfers have been missing some epic moments in between storms due to the closure of the lot that allows access to San Onofre & parts of Trestles. Here's a few photos during some calm moments with no one around. Enjoy!
