The KAT and the DOG

Awesome today ! at the bay waves were indifferent but sun was out and Simon "THE KAT" Firley turns up!.those unfamiliar with the kat should know that he rips on any board with pure style and innovation,he is also a very gifted shaper with his K-BAY label.Simon has been dissolusioned with surfing and has'nt surfed for over a year,so he opens his account with a skeg first takeoff and styles it through the session then out for a kat-knap and off to the bench on his hand shaped fish for the evening.The mellowest guy in the water,surfing needs more karachters like "THE KAT"


The lineup at the pier not much to work with but everybody had fun and thats wot its all about?

JOE HART showing a massive pair by taking off deep behind the peak on this beast!

Mason Snugged up and heading out closely followed by a Hippy/Straight combo!


I love the way Gary surfs , i think he'd go good on a BONZER he's got a lovely style and certainly lashes out whenever he gets a chance makes the slop look phun!

I've had about 6 enquiries for these awesome boards for the june shaping trip which we've had to decline. Malcolm is not up for making any more and that is that. So sorry to dissapoint those that have showed an interest. Only one of these boards has been ridden so far by my nephew OLI, which i saw and they seem to fly!,im waiting to get a go when my twisted ankle has healed and will give a full report asap.cheers guy.
