Uncharted Waters – The Personal History of Wayne Lynch from Patagonia on Vimeo.
There is a new surf movie about Wayne Lynch on tour called Uncharted Waters. It's playing at our local historic La Paloma theatre here in Encinitas on Friday. At the shop we have 2 '68 Evolution replicas for sale that Wayne shaped in the late 1990's. The transitional boards he rode in the Witzig films Evolution and Sea of Joy changed surfing forever although Wayne himself was extremely frustrated with the boards at the time.

The Surfy Surfy house version of the Mini-Simms are called the Spacebar, they are handshaped by our resident guru Mike Slingerland.
These two are customs for friends in Japan.
These deconstructionist resin tints are the opposite of the usual crisp cutlaps and snappy pinlines we usually post.
The the rub outs on these boards are so shiny they were really hard to photograph.
Great job Moonlight Glassing crew for the professional "shabby chic" glass jobs.

*Jon has pointed that it is his wife Rosa in the beekeeper suit in the first photo. Jon says Rosa does most of the bee handling but he is getting better at it. Apologies for the mix up Rosa.
