Vision of me shaping using 80 Grit sandpaper on the rails

Vision of me shaping using 80 Grit sandpaper on the rails. I use it to blend the top rail into the deck & to clean up the full length of the rail on a computer cut pre shape. When I’m shaping I like working on the rails with the Blank on this 45 degree angle in the stands. I use the Planer, Sureform, Sandpaper & Screen in this position. The board is a Bushranger Rounded Square Thruster model. The song playing in my shaping room is one of Pearl Jams live versions of the Mother Love Bone song “Crown Of Thorns”. @pearljam @surfboardempire @slimesboardstore @burfordblanks @montanapoolservice @mikemccreadypj @quiksilver #markrichardsshaping #markrichardsshapes #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger3 #mrbushranger3model #mrbushrangerroundedsquare #mrbushrangerroundedsquaremodel

How is this wave ?

How is this wave ? …. it looks a little like a cold version of an Hawaiian wave on the North Shore. It’s Newcastle from last Saturdays amazing swell. @timdickson is bailing out caught by this wave while attempting to paddle out. Tim did 3 circuits of the beach trying to get out & he probably was caught by & or duck dived about 60 + wave’s during the 3 long paddles. Easily 20 + wave’s on each circuit. For perspective his board is a 6’6″ long. It’s a MR Bushranger Rond Pin Step up Model. It was glassed to last in 6oz which in hindsight was a good call. The second photo is of Tim on the day, he pulled up into this wave and got a crazy barrel, Photo @samglohe Tim manages @slimesboardstore in King Street, Newcastle & this model is in stock & can also be custom ordered. •First Photo by Greg Meyer @coastalphotography_aust @pop_diddy @kakek_slime @surfview @surfboardempire @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @hannnahf_j @timryan1959 @sun_glass_glassing #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushrangerroundpingum #mrbushrangerroundpingunmodel #mrbushrangerroundpinmodel #mrbushrangerroundpin #mrbushrangerroundpinstepup #mrbushrangerroundpinstepupmodel

Vision of @timdicksons epic wave in Newcastle yesterday

Vision of @timdicksons epic wave in Newcastle yesterday. Everyone was losing in on the barrel part of the ride. But for me the most impressive part was the take off. Very late & he momentarily starts to lose it as the gale force offshore wind gets under the board & starts to lift it. He negotiates this & then instinctively sets the rail & knifes into the barrel. It was his second surf on his new custom 6”6″ MR. Bushranger Round. Pin Step Up model. 191/4″ wide & 25/8″ thick. Tim manages @slimesboardstore in Newcastle & the brief with the custom order was that he wanted a 6’6″ mini gun that would paddle like a 7’0″ to ride on the occasional epic big days we get in Newcastle. When the surf is this size it’s nearly impossible to paddle out. It involves a sketchy rock jump followed by 5-10 minutes of strong paddling & duck diving getting smashed & dragged by the current hoping that you reach a certain section of the beach just as you get a lull. Tim had had done 3 circuits of the paddle & got hammered every time. He eventually got out when @sanbah_surf owner @rhys_smithers appeared with his Ski & gave him a ride out. I shaped it from a @burfordblanks computer cut on @fitzycooly APS Shape 3D machine. It was sprayed by @dlovepaint & glassed by @sun_glass_glassing Vision by @jacksonlana Barrel Spit Photo @rcbart @kakek_slime @pop_diddy @surfboardempire @mysurftv @surfview @mrtoddblinky @darrenburford66 @fcs_surf @riklove72 @markrichardssurfboardsapparel @timryan1959 #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrbushranger #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushrangerroundpingum #mrbushrangerroundpingunmodel #mrbushrangerroundpinmodel #mrbushrangerroundpin #mrbushrangerroundpinstepup #mrbushrangerroundpinstepupmodel
