    Mid December, Plenty of Swell

    Christmas came early for us here on the west coast this December. After a lack of swell through November we opened up our gifts this year a few weeks early with consistent swell up and down the coast, some days were a little more special than others. Here's a few peeks of what a few of our compadres scored...

    December 5, 2015. The Longboard Collector Club at Doheny

    Always offering a wide variety of boards to pick through, surf swaps are something we always look forward to! Especailly the big one each December here in our backyard at Doheny.   

    Proto-types of some of the first removable fins.

    The one thing that separates this swap from the rest is the induction of the 'International Surfboard Builders Hall of Fame' and the highlights of this year's inductees included legends such as Jeff Ho & Pat Morgan 

    Jeff Ho started his business Zephyr Productions in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles in 1971. Jeff was locally known for his experimental surfboard designs and resin work. During that time he had formed a legandary shop team of talented surfers and skateboarders better known as the Z Boys and innovative team that changed surfing and skatebaording forever. 

    Pat Morgan Surfboards gained regotinition in the Australia surf scene in 1972 for his contribution of the seven inch keel fin. These twin fin keels were designed to gain speed along the big walls of Bells Beach. He opened shop in Torquay, Australia soon after and has obtained the dream of making a living of shaping boards ever since.

    Pat flew all the way up from Australia to take part in the ceremony.
