Spoon & Balsa Kneelos

Posted in: News, Surfboard by Richard Harvey on January 7, 2010 | No Comments

Been working on these two from before christmas and they will be finished ready to ship to the new owner Greg Walsh in Western Australia by the end of the week.

The Greenough style spoon, built to original specs will be sprayed red with a clear centre section and will have a 600 wet & dry finish.

The triple stringer balsa slab is going to be finish coated and polished.

More pics when completed.

Oh Magoo, you’ve done it again.

Surprised at the opening by an old classic shaped in the 70′s at The Burleigh Surf Co. In beautiful original condition, this one owner single fin has soft full box rails, hairline resin pinline with custom airbrush and a soft vee in the tail. It was shaped for John McGhee and is now part of his family’s collection.  The airbrush depicts Mr Magoo (being blind as a bat) with his Billabong cord shorts, layered thongs, looking for waves in the wrong direction. Of course with John’s passion being photography, the Nikon is hanging around Magoo’s neck. Left to right Richard, John and son Andrew.



Will be down at the Burleigh Single Fin comp along with some other single fin gems, on the 9th & 10th Jan 2010

The last six weeks sure went quickly, even though I was spending 12 hours a day and seven days a week getting it organised.

When all the boards were shifted and in their new racks and all the paintings had been hung, there still seemed to be so much space.

So it’s only the fine tuning of the new shop that has to be done over the next few days and a clean up at the old address and all is in readiness for the opening.

Surfboard orders have been steadily coming in so I will be back into the shaping bay this week and getting it all moving again.

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.
