This Board is For Pulling Into 20 Ft. Barrels

You may have seen this in our Fall Surf Catalog. Its a time lapse video of Fletch shaping a 9’2″ gun for Kohl.

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.

  1. Nice. Is this the Nelscott board?

    Brendon -
    He surfed a couple of different boards at Nelscott. He was surfing a 10’6″ that we made him. Then he switched to this board that you see in the time lapse but it was a little small for Nelscott that day (crazy right?!), so he rode a third board for his final wave.
    Check back on Monday for more board footage from Nelscott – you’ll want to see this clip!
