Jason’s new red single fin

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on July 24, 2009


The Glide, one of summer’s new models, this single fin has triple stringers with classic sparkling red tint. “This board has made my day” was Jason’s only comment, as he collected his birthday present, he was lost for words.

Alaia and Handboard

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on



The Alaia phenomenon has exploded with a wide variety of shapes now being ridden. Today I shaped a 5′ Alaia based on a fish snowboard. Beautiful lines and interesting design that is going to be ridden by James who normally rides a surf mat. Also shaped him a 13 1/2″ hand plane with cutout grip. My logo is burned into the wood. These two have yet to be oiled with a mixture of Linseed oil and turpentine which makes the grain go golden.

An old picture postcard of Burleigh taken from up on the hill and over looking the developing township.

POOL SKATERS 1975 CALIFORNIA

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on



While going through my photographic archives I came across about a hundred black & white negatives of a pool skate session in California.

Lonnie Toft and Richard Vanderwick were just two guys in a very talented bunch that hit the empty pools around Ventura.
Sequence shots and the crew. Check out the four truck board in the foreground of the group shot. I remember seeing Lonnie get right up on one wheel on the coping with that monster.
Lots of scanning to be done but more coming shortly. Once this is done the book will start.
Longboard Cutback – Floral Series

Posted in: News, Uncategorized by Richard Harvey on July 1, 2009


Billy Hamilton’s beautiful cutback on a classic 10′ triple stringer inspired the latest piece of artwork in my floral series.

It will be sent off to the framers in the next couple of days, and then be on show at the gallery.
