9-0 Nova in action....

I love to see my boards in action! This is Kirt on his 9-0 Nova single-fin at Church's during the 2/1/15 swell. Kirt is always one of the best surfers in the water at Church's and he always rides Thomas Patrick Surfboards.  I usually do the Novas as 2+1, but that's what a "custom" board is all about. Your board, your way.

The dimensions are 9'0" 18-1/2" x 22-3/4" x 15" 3-1/4". I built this board almost 3 yrs ago and its good to see it being put through it's paces. You can see it when it was brand new here. So Cal has had good waves in abundance this winter, and good waves deserve good boards. Order your custom board today!

The last TBG3s...

These are the last two TBG3s. The one on the left is for a 300lb rider, while the one on the right is for a 170lb rider. The biggest difference in these last two G3s is the switch from a well-defined tail concave to a blended double concave tail with slight V. While I prefer quad fins, both customers chose the twin fin set-up.

I start work on the new TBG4 next week. This board will be 3" longer (at 48"), than my old TB3. The extra length will necessitate changes in the outline, the foil and fin position.
