We’d like to introduce all of you to The Coaster, the latest addition to our range and a surfboard that we’ve been struggling to keep under wraps these past few months because we’ve been so excited to talk about it. The first Coaster that we built over the course of spring was also the first surfboard that we’ve made entirely using English poplar, a light, straight grained and strong timber. As soon as we got it back from the laminators (where it was glassed matt, with a gloss stripe wrapping around the inset wood veneer logo) we headed down the hill to the beach to see how she went. We handed our latest creation over to our friend Marcus Healan who paddled out in some lovely early summer waves and proceeded to style his way across the waist high peelers. We sat on the cliffs above watching in earnest, and trained a couple of cameras on him so that we could pull together this short, which was directed by Mat from Hailer, edited by Al at Tiny Dog and features the wonderful music of Frootful (fronted by local musician Nick Radford).
Enjoy, share, and go surf.
