My buddy Matt Harrigan fell out of surfing years ago to pursue his dreams of world domination. Now he’s back and all surf stoked again, so he ordered his first custom surfboard. Shaped by Gary Hanel (aka GH), this board was designed to clear sections in the long mushy walls of north San Diego county.
Dims: 6’2″ length, 15 1/2″ nose, 21 1/2″ width, 16″ tail and 2 7/8″ thick.
5/4 S-glass coke bottle green resin tint by Gary Stuber. Bamboo side fins by 101 Fin Co. “Sleepy Tiki” hotrod pinlines by Peter St Pierre. Glossed and polished for looks and longevity.
Matt named this board The Turbot, after a fish that the UK and Canada almost went to war over. Read The Turbot War on Wikipedia.
