Apologies for the mushy pace of posts, but that's summer for you. (Especially when there's a bit of swell) There's work getting done though, and Joe has been playing with a few new variations on the designs that will hopefully be ready for a grand unveiling at the upcoming Swift Movement 'Goin' Off' blowout party, tenatively scheduled for Sept 10 and 11 at the Barnyard in lovely downtown San Diego. More on that as we get it dialed in and our boy Phil works his graphics magic. We still have t-shirts too, so if you want to proudly state your appreciation for progressive surfboard design (in easy wearing cotton, several colors), we're ready to help.

Photo lifted from Cher Pendarvis- thanks!
A recent Saturday night saw the Surfing Heritage Foundation in San Clemente hosting an event for a new film on shaping they've been involved in, and Joe Bauguess happily provided them with a really nice example of what shaping is all about in this modern era. He was displayed there with sn interesting range of boards for sure, Ekstrom, Pendo and Meyerhoffer were all represented, to say nothing of the collection the foundation has going on. All going well there will be a film with Joe actually in it and shaping doing the rounds by the end of the year.

This time it's the Brennan's from the chilly North East. They rock a serious selection of home made wood along with some post modern planning hulls, and ride the hell out of them. Extra points for the Casper coffin. SoCal friends come to Ebb & Flow, the new Andy Davis store in Cardiff at 111 Chesterfield Rd (across from Patagonia) which is having an opening party complete with RK showing some newly minted Hydrodynamica footage.
