Last Wave for my Single Fin

My 6'9'' Alexander Surfboards single fin was one of my favorite boards ever. It basically served as my big-wave board last year here in Indonesia, though I surfed it on plenty of smaller days too. I was pretty heart-broken when I snapped it a couple weeks ago, but atleast Mul from ESP got a pretty cool shot of my last wave. The board snapped while paddling back out; some guy stupidly ditched his board on top of me while trying to avoid a set, leaving me with 1 foot of board and a hazardous swim back to the beach.
Instead of getting a replica, I'm working with Jeff to take the best qualities of that board and update it with a more modern bottom (and a couple other tweaks). It's just finished getting shaped, so hopefully it will be getting glassed this next week!

He's there shooting pretty much everyday, and you're bound to end up with some great shots if your in the lineup. Conact him via e-mailfacebook, or call him at either +6281916727595 or +6285738677532.
