Greg Webber's deep double
Jutting his chin like an outlaw Greg Webber holds up his latest board design - a deep double concave with narrow, flexing fins up front and a snub keel at rear.
If the concept seems extreme keep in mind this is a toned down version of something Greg's been working on for a while. See the bottom photos which were taken in 2016, and keen observers will notice strands of the idea have surfaced in Greg's work over the past twenty years.
Inscribed down the stringer of the latest board is 'by Greg for Someone' with the shaper alluding to that someone being in the the Quiksilver Pro. He's shaped for Kelly before, yet KS is feet up in Hawaii. So who's the board for?
"That someone is anyone, really" said Greg when Swellnet pressed him for answers.
So it's a bit of guerilla marketing then?
"Yep. It's sitting in the [Quiksilver Pro] competitors tent getting looked at a fair bit."
Greg says he's after top level feedback before releasing it as a new design. "John John would be ideal! Now that he's out maybe he can have a little go."
And even though KS isn't here, Greg is making a version for Kelly so he can test out his foot.
