Here's the latest addition to my fleet.

100% hand crafted, fins and all, the workmanship, quality, finish and attention to detail is first class.

It's a stretched version of this:

which I've had for just over two years, and has provided me with countless hours of absolute joy.

Huge thank you to MP for all the work he put into both boards.

Sold 5 boards and ordered two new ones. The Ray Finlay and this Josh Keogh beauty. Gave a test this morning, although it was only just OH. Goes like a dream. A masterpiece.

IB and others - do you know if Josh Keogh's taking orders for boards at the moment?
Thought he might have been flooded with orders post Harry Bryant movie but wanted to treat myself a 50th present...

Seeds. Hi mate.

Haven’t put my feet on it yet.

Thursday was looking the goods, 4ft, got near the coast and it’s all lumpy and bumpy from the previous days wind. I give it a miss, go back to my deck construction . Low and behold, after lunch , swell picks up to 4-5ft, benign conditions take over the coast and there was not a puff of wind, total oil slick conditions.

Those who persisted were well rewarded with crew surfing right up until dark in sublime conditions.

Now we enter 10 days of misery. Thems, the breaks. AW
