    Phil Taylor Custom

    Just wanted to post up pics of the beautiful board Phil shaped for me.




    I can't wait to try it ou this weekend. Phil makes some damn attractive boards, so hit him up if you are looking for a good deal on a custom.

    Phil is the man. Ripping surfer too. I went to school with him when he was just getting into shaping his own boards, and they rode great even then.

    It is a performance egg design, made to handle waist mush to head high clean. This board 'aint made for trimming, like David the Gnome's boards. However, since I am just stuck learning how to be a sheep like the rest of the industry, I am sure it will work.

    Phil is a really nice guy. I hope he doesn't mind me saying this, but he actually split the shipping cost with me. As a thank you for being so kind and generous, I am trying to get his boards into my buddy's surf shop.

    We could start a "Needs more rocker" meme with the colorful wetsuit and helmet picture. That will be the official response to all new surfboard design posts.

    Beautiful board too btw.

    Yeah I agree, Phil's boards look incredible. I was very close to getting a board made from him at the begining of this year but other life costs (thanks sandy you b%tch.) derailed those plans.

    The art on the boards look great too.

    Nice board! Don't forget to give us a ride report...

    Thanks. I will report after tomorrow, if we actually get waist high glassy waves. I went out last night in the knee to waist mush, but was afraid to take the beautiful new board.

    That's a sweet board! Now, i may have to order one jsut like that. If you don't mind me asking how big are you? I'm 6 foot 250ish pounds and obviously need a barge or something close to that to float me. I can surf in the intermediate category. I'm no Kelly Slater but i'm not a total kook either.
