I stumbled across the Electric Acid Surfboard test with Steph over at Stab and thought i'd share a clip of her absolutely ripping on the board I shaped with Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos. Take a look and enjoy.
Mark Richard is considered surfing royalty, not only for achieving 4 consecutive World Titles but for also pioneering a radical approach to wave riding made possible by his famous twin-fin designs. But there’s a backstory here…
I’d go to the factory, watch him (Jeff) shape and whenever someone came in and said hey the surfs really good, everyone would stop, whatever they were doing they would stop and just all go in mass and go surfing
I'm just really grateful that the twin fin has been taken out of the museum and given this whole new lease on life with so many young surfers and so many young shapers embracing them and doing new twin fin models.
My shaping career began at age 13, when I got an electric planer for Christmas. There was no such thing as Pro Surfing in those days, and if you surfed, the dream career was to work in the surfboard industry.
