Almost 25 years after Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard began hammering pitons, Fletcher, Yvon’s son, started Point Blanks (now FCD Surfboards) in a shack next door to the original Iron Works. Like father like son: Fletcher and Point Blanks proceeded to lay-up and destroy hundreds of fiberglass/ foam panels until they found a better, stronger and lighter way to build boards. And, with a group of freethinking surfers and shapers, designed higher-performance boards using the new technology.

    Wish they had those things back in 1979…i broke my arm doing that on the same hill. Of course we were on short & fat Sims pool boards. We never thought far enough ahead to think about actually stopping! Good to see some things never change, they just get smarter as they go about it.
