Dear friends of Surfy Surfy,
This is my 884th post. When I started Surfy Surfy in 2005 I was only aware of a handful of surf themed blogs. I currently have over 70 cool surf blogs linked, and it seems like everyday a new one gets started up. The Surf Blogger Nation is strong.
(If you are a surf blogger and I don’t have you linked please e-mail me at email@example.com so I can get you in there. The blog list is alphabetical).
I’m looking forward to keeping Surfy Surfy going in 2008. Here are some items of note:
*My Surfing Magazine Blog is still on hiatus due to the overwhelming attack of spam on the comments section. I’m not sure what the future of that blog is. I kind of freaked out the surfing establishment with some of those post so I don’t know if they really want to keep me around, ha-ha.
*I am working on a cool web project with Rob from 70percent.org that I just know all of you will dig. Stay tuned for updates.
*Since Surfy Surfy is pretty much about the surfboards made at my family surfboard farm, Moonlight Glassing I will continue to run with that theme. Come to Surfy Surfy for your quality daily surfboard pornography.
*Many of you have been kind and trusting enough to bring us your shaped blanks for glassing. Thank you so much for your business! My New Year’s resolution is to be better about posting photos of YOUR boards because that is what it is all about.
*If you have any cool photos of the boards we glassed for you feel free to e-mail them to me for posting. Action surf shots of our boards are always cool to see too.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Dims–I never know the dimensions of the boards I post. I try to remember to take a photo of the dims written on the stringer but sometimes they are covered up by the colorwork. Some dims are top secret.
*I will continue to post the occasional stock board we have for sale out of our showroom but Surfy Surfy will remain largely noncommercial. A special thanks to everyone who has bought a showroom board from us, it really helps ensure the future of the factory in these tumultuous times.
*I will from time to time post about shipments of new boards going out to various surf shops we work with.
*I am also the moderator of the Surfer Mag Dot Com Design Forum. If you like to discuss surfboards online check it out here.
*The main emphasis of Surfy Surfy will continue to be Campbell Brothers Bonzer surfboards because they look cool, ride insane and are a lot of hard work to build so it’s rewarding for me to post photos of the them all finished up.
*I will continue to post photos of surfboards by all the other talented shapers we work with and keep you updated on our testing of the exciting new surfboard resin, Resin-X.
*I didn’t start adding labels to post until a few months ago. A lot of older post still don’t have labels but I’m working on it. Please tell me you are clicking on the labels so I haven’t wasted a 100 hours of my life.
*All my photos are taken with a digital waterproof Optio Pentax that was graciously donated to me by the official sponsor of Surfy Surfy, Wayne Payne after he learned my previous camera had been lost/stolen. (Oddly enough, this is now the official Kelly Slater camera).
