This is an the board I shaped for my buddy Juan Jose a while back called the Quevz model (pronounced, ke'vez not kwe'vz). This board is currently being tested and tweaked but will soon be available as a Grey Ghost model. The Quevz model will also come with an option to have the personalized Quevz paint job on custom orders.

Strong Island Wednesdays!

Longer more girthy and slightly tweaked (basically completely different) version of the legendary collabo board for Rockville's Cesar.

7'6 Speed Fish for Nice guy Craig. Lookout for the new logo in the shorey.

5'6 for the ghost face himself. Juan Jose Heredia a.k.a. Quevz, a.k.a Malik Jazz, a.k.a. The Miami Kid

5'8 "Popsicle" for Pat "The Rat" Conlon, ill equipped with the tough guy rat bones/back to back "GG" anchor spray for the righteous ones. Stay Chisled! Bay Weeezy Locals
Airbrush work done by: "The Rat" himself

Today was a really amazing day. Ventured out to the Nature Shapes showroom where I just had my boards glassed by legendary Long Island surfer and craftsman Ed Fawess. Needless to say the work was tight! After that I headed out to Mastic Beach and met up with Mastic's most Mastastic resident, Lentini, the one and only Deebo (Homeboy is Lost On A Sandbar) and big boy frontiersman Tom who is a decorated fisherman and all around jack of all trades. We waded out at this beautiful little spot and just caught fish after fish for about 2 hours. We ended up with 20 or so blue fish that we later brought back to the Lentini household where we open fire cooked the fish and had frontiersman Tom showed us the ins and outs of filleting a fish and skinning it. I can equate today to a chest high glassy day of surfing. Totally epic. 

Today wouldn't be possible without the help and guidance of Deebo and Tom. Much appreciated!

Back on the wheel...

After a while of not glassing boards I find myself back behind the squeegee pushing resin around on this collaborative project between me and JonBless.  Hollow wooden casper lofted by Jonbless, foiled and refined by J.Clams. Keeping the fins true to Simmons design, double foil redwood fins crafted and refined by JonBless. I'm a sucker for a good collaboration.
