New me

Posted in: Fish, Harvey, model, News, Surfboard by Richard Harvey on August 8, 2012 | No Comments

Put a bit of weight on over the last few years, seems like as you get older the metabolism slows down, so the fat doesn’t get burnt off.

Went on a special program over 6 weeks and took off around 20 kgs. Now down to my recommended weight of 76 kgs.

Feeling like a million dollars even if I don’t have anywhere near that in the bank.

Looking forward to getting back on some smaller boards over summer.

Still have my nice noserider and a new 9’5″ double ender pintail single fin, as well as a 7’6 round pintail board I built for myself before the weight started to stack on which I haven’t ridden.

Now all we need is some waves. In the meantime some of the boards I have built in the last week or so.

The Big Skipper is an easy paddling longer fish, hand laminated timber veneer fins, blue tint top and bottom, mustard pinlines.

Very pretty board.

The Mini Simmons revolution is gathering steam. My latest creation is a carbon bottom with red tint and gold metal flake deck, paulownia timber and carbon keels. All polished and shiney.

1970′s Single Fin Channel Bottom Half Surfboard Model

Posted in: model, News, Surfboard by Richard Harvey on June 14, 2009 | No Comments


Been having a timber moment (lasted a few weeks) so I finished this half model that has been sitting in the gallery for a while.

This half model is made out of pine with cedar stringers and has a lower rocker with foiled thickness common in the mid seventies boards.
3 Channels (6 over a full board) and a wide base single fin (Brewer style template).
This model is about 16″ long.
Will be on show at the Wooden Surfboard Day at Currumbin coming up soon.
