Blue Blue Gil

Tuesday, March 05, 2013












6'2" Blue Gil shaped by Jon Wegener.
Snazzy ice blue resin tint by Gary Stuber at Moonlight Glassing.
The Blue Gil is a foam and fiberglass cheater Alaia with small nubby twin fins.
These things are super fun. I rode one for the first time at the Paipo Stoke Fest last September.
It's pretty amazing, easier to surf than you think (at least for me, frontside. Backside was a challenge). Fast, trimmy, groovy and it's fulfilling when it breaks loose into a controlled slide and then reconnects.
This is a stock board at Surfy Surfy, come check it out.
