Is he still making boards Yuke?
Yeah, but he moved out of his factory in South Tweed when the landlord doubled the rent late last year ... he's in Burleigh somewhere now.

Makes a nice board.

I was surfing with the shaper of SWS (Stone Wild Surfboards) last week, down on the Coffs coast, he's not shaping much nowadays, but knew Mick Roche and has shapes with some of the best in the business.

Would love to try one of these, sized right.

I know they go good on your backhand.

For reference this is a Nigel Beckham twin.

A 6’9 I owned. Fast as fuck and super wild top to bottom. Liked hollow waves, burgers not so much.

Resin swirl I think.
Not the best one.
Maybe not a bad size board for Steve though.
