Malcolm Rips

I hooked with Malcom Campbell and UK Bonzer tour instigator Guy Penwarden for an interview last night and a feature will be appearing on Drfit very soon. I got the Guys to talk more about themselves than surfboards to get another angle for the article, also talked about many other things including Taylor Knox's surfing feats on Bonzers and the amazing legacy of the Bonzer design as it reaches it's 40th anniversary.

In the mean time here is some vintage footage of Malcolm on a Bonzer and if you have ever watched much surfing from the seventies then you will know this is cutting edge surfing for that period of innovation.

Not forgetting a bit of Taylor as well.

The Functional Art of Paipo Glide

I'm stoked to have my first article published in The Surfers Path. The article that is in the current edition of the magazine is about Andy Bick and his Paipo Glide boards. Andy is a very creative individual who has followed his own path in making wooden prone ridden paipo boards. Rather than following the latest fad, he is inspired by history, sustainability and his search for speed and glide in the water.

See the latest TSP and Andy’s webpage for more.
