    Charles I was riding the 70 pound redwood Dragon board in small onshore surf, and lost the board. I swam after it and possibly because i'd been in training for the NZ Nationals arrived at the destination faster than expected. In other words I swam at full speed into the pintail. A small piece of resin had been chipped off leaving a sharp edge about 1/8" across, the board was rocking up and down in the swell as I hit it so scribed a nice big slice. The impact was pretty hard too but it didn't hurt. I drove myself to the doctor and luckily a top plastic surgeon was visiting the beach clinic so I got the best possible result. Thirty six stitches were used, that makes 46 to the head in total so far.

    I won a watch in NZ Surfing mag's 'Gash of the month'.

    That depends upon when we are talking about... it was a 14 year mission, during which we started making surfboards.

    We started making our own wax in 1998, using a recipe invented by my wife which has won several awards all over the world and is now well known as a standard organic board wax recipe.

    Reminiscent of what that SoCal surfer 'guru' doc Paskowitz did to his kids. The film about his 8 kids, and how screwed up they are as a result of da-da's wacked out views & how he ran their lives.

    "A megalomaniac father forces his family to live out his dream, even as that dream retreats further and further from reality.

    In the film, the children, now adults, recount their struggles to detach from their father and live some semblance of their own lives.

    Seventh son Salvador notes, my father said, ‘You can go swimming with sharks, but you’re not [expletive] going to school, that [expletive] is dangerous.”

    Navah, the sole daughter, now 39, laments the sexism of her father, which she and her mother both felt. She recalls that she never, ever had girls’ underwear, since clothing was recycled from child to child.

    And in some of the most painful footage, she talks about the psychological and sexual damage she suffered as the only girl sleeping with eight brothers in a tiny camper, with parents who noisily made love every night.

    “We were like small monkeys in a weird monkey cage,” she says.


    This thread is just another chunk of braggadocio from an arrogant, self-styled narcissist. With chucka-boo-boo's snout firmly entrencehd in gnome's tailpipe.

    This gnome-the-legend stuff is the Kiwi version of 'The Poisonwood Bible.'

    You can ask my children yourself if you want to exit your own toxic fantasy and enter reality.

    They are on my facebook friends list... and I'm not Paskowitz.

    My children were given the choice ( and still are) of schooling at home or at the regular insititution.

    Anyhow the book will certainly create a variety of opinions on what we did, I already know that.

    Gotcha. But what about the pin tails and astronaut suits?

    That's the 8'4" 'Phantom singlefin in balsa, glassed with 6oz . 8'4" by 21" from 1996, It could be done in paulownia. A great little board, a true double ender in every respect, rocker planshape and rails. It could have the fin on the other end and be exactly the same. Thickness was only 44mm, it could be scaled up a tad. There's another shot on there showing the fin, along with another board.

    roy, i've lurked on swaylocks for a LONG time, and also lurk on here too. I can't say I like most of your boards. However, this 8'4", is superb.
