  • This is @landon_boettger tapping off some sanded bands.   What might seem boring and repetitive actually has a purpose.  Following the curves of @superwolf and Larry Crow forces you to learn what a proper tape off looks like. Doing this day in and day out creates muscle memory which you can see the direct results in his own boards he builds as they get better and better.

  • This Photo has been bouncing around a bit as Steve Lis party of my own fault I posted it a year or two ago saying it was. But turns out it’s a guy they called Fritter. I reached out to Rex Huffman to get the story and here’s the response I got.  Pretty classic stuff form a classic guy you can’t make this stuff up.  









A guy we called Fritter! No one ever knew his real name or spoke to him!! He took some serious beatings in the day!!

Trust me this guy is in this position by shear accident!! 


Stevie surfed the Rock maybe a total of 2 times and would never have gotten in this deadly position!!

Losing that kneecap gimped me on rights because of pressure on the inside knee on turns! Younger I went either way for years bu that is rare.

Fang confirmation on photo! Fritter!
Death position. I am pretty sure he was gone for awhile after this unfortunate situation!
He was never allowed near the point position or launch zone so this occurred on the inside double up day where the wave caught him! He did not catch the wave!
Back then we all new to take off straight and plant and hope the fin and inside rail caught! This was an incredibly difficult maneuver back then- twin fin spin out boards- no leash- heavy wetsuits- guys like me screaming at you to take off or ” launch” or paddle in. Water bullying at its height!
Few surfers surfed the Rock back then- only guys like O Rourke- and a few others caught on from us how to drop in and catch vs get launched!
Remember- Jeff - this was 40 years ago!!
We were kook kneeboarders but also Astronauts of this heaving barely ridden challenge!!
Stitches and broken boards were daily during good swells!
Rail grab surfing not yet evolved or pig dog but I witnessed it coming into the arena!
I wish you could have surfed or witnessed the story and evolution back then!! It was incredible. I am lucky to have been a part regardless of injuries and the future agony!!
TheRock was our Pipeline back then!!!

  • Here’s a detail I’ve intentionally left of the Internet for the last few years.  The biggest gripe about the chime is the amount of extra foam in the nose, creating more swing weight.  Well this slight nose concave reduces that. Thus helping the board perform in more critical sections of the waves.  This theory has been tested and proven by @joeljitsu @jojoroper and and few others through the years.

  • Making new friends on the Dusy Ershim trail last weekend.  I helped winch this guy back on all fours after they pulled out a clothes  line as a tow strap.  If he hadn’t of caught the tree on the corner of his hood he would of gone another 25-30 yrds down the ravine.  In the end though these guys saved our ass cause we weren’t prepared for the snow and the 31 miles without any service or backup.  I

Bio

Jeff McCallum is a tough guy to describe – at least with any brevity. Vocationally, he’s one of the surf industry’s most creative shapers. He’s brought to life instant classics like the Spoon, the Quagg, the Slick Rick and the Hollow Point. The following for his handiwork stretches from Japan to France and back to SoCal. And Jeff’s shaping San Diego facility closely resembles an airplane hangar – which is only fitting considering the high speed product it houses. But that’s just the top level. When he isn’t working on new designs with Joel Tudor or sipping Bordeaux amid a board-building binge (alliteration in the house), Jeff can be found hooping with regularity and kicking it with his English Mastiff, Kimbo. Jeff McCallum’s personality and talents are as unique as the boards that he shapes – not like that description really does him much justice.
