Mick Adams new custom "Puffer 5" model. It's 5'8", 201/4" wide & 23/8" thick. The bottom is single to double concave & the stock tail is a rounded square.

My 6’6″ step up “Super Twin”

My 6'6" step up "Super Twin". It's 19" wide & 25/8" thick. This board is about 6 years old & I only ride it occasionally when the surf is really good. There are no wings at the tail like a standard Super Twin. It has a 111/4" wide nose. The outline is really pulled in at the tail with it measuring 133/4" up 1' & a 41/4" wide swallow. Bottom is single to double concave. I did the color design on the foam myself using a 2" wide paint brush & water based fluro paints. Fin set up is twins up front & a small stabilizer fin in the tail using my FCS MR TX fins. @fcs_surf @quiksilver My 6’6″ step up “Super Twin”. It’s 19″ wide & 25/8″ thick.

Just finished shaping Mick Adam’s new “Lone Ranger” model yesterday

Just finished shaping Mick Adam's new "Lone Ranger" model yesterday. It's 5'10" 191/2" wide & 23/8" thick. This model fits right in between 2 of my most popular models. The "Flying Fish" which is a semi fish & the "Bushranger" which is a high performance thruster. My idea was to design a quiver killer finding a happy medium between the two taking the best aspects of each & combining them into this new model. Bottom is single to double concave & the stock tail shape is a rounded square. A swallow or a round tail are custom options. @pop_diddy @slimes_surf_skate @jmrad Just finished shaping Mick Adam’s new “Lone Ranger” model yesterday. It’s 5’10” 191/2″ wide & 23/8″ thick.

A custom 1974 Retro “STING”

A custom 1974 Retro "STING" for Daniel. It's 6'2" long, 201/2" wide & 27/8" thick. This one is sprayed on both sides. Yellow center , red fade over the yellow & then a black fade over the two colors for a "burnt" look. That's my son Kyle's Siberian Husky "Zali" wandering into the photo on the left. She is usually outside but it was a really windy day & strong wind gusts & noises seem to frighten her so she likes being inside if the weather is bad. A custom 1974 Retro “STING” for Daniel.

The tail of my 6’8″ Bushranger model

The tail of my 6'8" Bushranger model. This is the board from my post a few days ago. 12" up the tail is 14" wide. The swallow is 41/2" wide with a 11/4" deep curved cut. I posted a photo of the tail as I was shaping it about a month ago showing a curved swallow cut & a straight cut drawn on the blank. General feedback was the curve looked sweeter so I went with the curve. On boards of this length for good 6' plus surf I usually ride thrusters but I went with 5 sets of FCS 2 plugs so I can experiment with it as a quad. @fcs_surf markrichardssurfboards.com The tail of my 6’8″ Bushranger model.

Mick Adam outside Slimes Surf & Skate in Newcastle

Mick Adam outside Slimes Surf & Skate in Newcastle. He's holding Andrew Meek's custom "Puffer 5". It's 6'8", 22" wide & 23/4" thick. Stock tail is a rounded square. The bottom is single to double concave & it comes with 5 sets of FCS 2 plugs. Andrew picked the colors & the design is based on the spray I did myself on my own Puffer 5. Mono did the spray on this one & his interpretation turned out way better than my effort. When I posted the photo of mine I got every comment from good spray to you cant be serious !!!! @learntosurfnewcastle @fcs_surf @pop_diddy @slimes_surf_skate Mick Adam outside Slimes Surf & Skate in Newcastle.
