Chris Christenson  Asyms are so 2011....

Just my opinion...... been watching the @wsl contest at J Bay and I feel like most of the surfers rail lines are too short in the epic conditions they are currently getting. This photo of @curfuffle is my all time favorite surfing photo and it reminds me of long rail aesthetics. I prefer one quality turn vs the quantity for judging formats. Again, just my opinion....

I still occasionally use full door skin templates for router outline cut outs. This was a must when I use to hand shape 50 boards per week on shaping trips in Japan. I was always inspired by the numbers and quality that veteran travel shapers such as @rawsonsurfboards @tpattersonsurfboards @mcsurfboards @mayhemb3_mattbiolos and Rick Hammond could do sans shaping computers and social media. I'd love to see one of these new generation shapers be able to continue carrying that torch. Still waiting...

Back on the horse..... Thanks for loaning some tools and a shaping bay @shaperhouse #vidadevaquero

Just when I thought I've seen and experienced it all, and only two years after I lost my house to a fire, life sent another set wave at 30 others and I and it was no rehearsal. I had just laid the last shape of my day down upstairs at the @pukassurf factory in Spain and heard fire alarms thru the loud noises of operating shaping machines, various stereos, and noticed nobody was around. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw one of the girls from the office start screaming at me in Spanish from a distance and I just took that as run as I only had seconds to navigate out of the largest surfboard factory in Europe. Flames were running along the walls and floors rapidly igniting everything in their path as I was one of the last to get out. It was a miracle that all 30+ of us made it out of the factory just before 100% of the building was engulfed in flames. It took 25 minutes before the first fire crew arrived. All we could do is watch this fire from a distance take the whole factory down along with surrounding buildings. It was so sad to see the tears of the owners and staff who have put 40+ years of their heart and souls into this business, and to know the tough paddling they'll have to do to make it back in the channel. Fire is no joke, and I encourage everyone to take all fire preventions and drills seriously at your home, work place, and places of leisure. This was just my 3rd trip to work here and I already considered @pukassurf family and amongst the nicest people I've ever worked with. The @pukassurf crew is tough as nails and they'll be back in the lineup soon, stronger than ever...... Life is precious, and business is just only business.
