5’5″ Bee’s Knees

Shaper/bee keeper  Jon Wegener (brother of famous groovy surf dude Tom Wegener) is adapting well to living the Leucadia lifestyle; farming, making interesting surfboards and surfing the mushiest waves in all of San Diego county.

Single foil marine ply keels make this thing sweet as honey.

*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. 

Blue Blue Gil

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.

The Wegener Blue Gil

Jon Wegener let me borrow this groovy little machine, it’s called the Blue Gil. It’s a kind of a surfboard/alaia hybrid.
 I rode it first at Glen Sakamoto’s Paipo Stoke Fest thingy last month and got intrigued.
 Rode it is this morning in small glassy surf. It’s a trip, paddling and take off are easier than I anticipated. The super hard edge really holds and it hooks into trim lickety split. I felt a little lost after that, wasn’t sure what to do so I just went straight down the line and occasionally got slidey slidey sideways.
 I tried to conjure up visions of Derek Hynd finless at J-Bay while attempting to squeeze into Leucadia micro-barrels.
Feeling pretty stoked after the experience, thanks Jon!

Here are a couple of videos of Jon riding his:

Jon and his wife and daughter live up the hill from Surfy Surfy and we’ve been watching him shred his shapes for awhile now. Plus, Surfy Surfy has a fondness for Hobbit shaper/surfers.
