This is the new board that Paul has been working on in his warm and cosy garage . If you check his blog you will see the whole building process . Nice job , but way too cold for me.

Now these are fun things to make and surf. What to do with all those small scraps of wood and hone your shaping skill at the same time. A great project for the kids on holiday or while you are building something else as well.

Gary Murphy in California , well known for his Brownfish boards has spent the last 12 months just building and shaping handplanes. He makes a range of designs and they are beautifully finished.
Jason Hall a photographer with the support of Go Pro cameras has sent one of Garys' hand planes off around the world for a tour of surf spots globally. Well it is in Sydney now and then will be on it's way to the Gold Coast for The Alley Fish Fry which I also organise ,the first weekend in March.I am sure it will be wet most of the day as many people try it out and we capture a little film of the days activities in and out of the water.

I am not sure what age Joe is these days but he has been doing it for ever and still going strong.He has built many a classic board . His craftsmanship is second to none.Will have some more shots as it comes together.
