Surfy Surfy is stoked to announce that we are now working with second generation surfer/shaper Ryan Sakal. Son of old school shaper Ed Sakal from Huntington Beach, Ryan recently relocated to Cardiff-by-the-sea. 32 year old Ryan is a good surfer (he rips) with a humble demeanor and is a talented shaper. His clean and functional shapes caught my eye about a year ago.
Looky at what we gots down at Surfy Surfy. It’s the 1980’s Tom Curren model, the Red Beauty from Channel Islands. This is a replica of what Curren rode back in the day. Remember how Curren used to stoke you out? Yeah, us too!

This one is for all the friends of Surfy Surfy who dig the blog and like the new shop but still aren’t convinced to ride anything but 3 fins. The Taylor Knox model from Channel Islands is a Surfy Surfy approved. It features a modified deep double concave Bonzer bottom for speeding around sections and carving up the lip. The outline is sublimely perfect and the rails are crispy and delicious.
This board features the Lokbox fin system and includes Taylor’s personalized fin template.
Taylor Knox has been a good friend for over 20 years and we are stoked to stock his signature surfboard.
