This is Our Virtual Surf Shack!

Shacks come and shacks go. We started in garages and we return to garages. Our old shack site was sold, (died) in 2007. We moved in with BJ (see below) in west Houston and after a nearly 5 year run that deal turned into a junk yard, including a the mean old junk yard dog etc. We moved back into a my peaceful garage in fall 2011 where the shaping room has always been (what ever house I had). Check out some recently made boards.

of Doc   "The Condor" - Doc   The first board I shaped and glassed when I was about 12 did not float for more than 10 minutes. The mess I made doing it in my dad's garage was legendary. Let's not count it, shall we? I watched more and started to learn from the da-kine guys in the late 60's and really made boards people would buy starting around 1970. A typical years production now ranges from 6' thrusters and fish to guns to 10' ultra light nose riders with everything else you can imagine.

 Glassing Room Standards by our standards

We're not interested in buying "classic" boards. Life is short. Ride 'em till they die! ... just don't bring 'em here. Get a new ride!
