    Nev's Blog

    Turns out Nev has a blog over at

    http://nevhyman.posterous.com

    Worth keeping an eye on as there's some sneaky info on there.

    "SubMoon arising

    Taylor cruised by the Currumbin showroom to check on the prototypes for the new SubMoon Funshapes.

    These boards are going to be insane...Super cool, different and very functional outline, foil and rocker and at, 7'6", 8'2", 8'7", 8'11" and 9'5" they are going get any old dog or sweet puppy excited. In the meantime if anyone is gunna nose how dey goes it will be Taylor...Should have some photos in a few weeks, so I will keep you socialmedia'd...

    He also checked the TJ Everyday v.2 proto which we have altered the rails and rocker buy adding more tail curve to improve the nose ride, and making the rail more 60/40 in profile for...Geez I dunnoo, ask Taylor... You Logger Blogers are going to love Taylor's adjustments to this baby."

    "Here he is checking this crazy new material we are testing that can best be described as...

    ...damm..have been instructed not to let the cat out of the bag...

    Such a bore cause I can tell you no more...Sooorrreeeeee!!!!"


    Fun little story about Skype meetings with the R&D team too. Keep it up Nev!

    Just a thought... Getting tired of paying to travel boards. I'll tell you one thing though, I remember being in my local surf shop and saw the first Sweet Potato and everyone in the shop, myself included said, " I will NOT be getting or be seen riding one of those. I have one and couldn't be happier. One thing I've learned in life Never say never.

    Yeah It has been tried in the past with not too positive results. First the pricetag will be quite high and secondly I believe the flex patterns will be altered quite substantially. This is something that came about a couple of years ago

    Come on Nev, update the blog! There must be some LSD and Tomo gossip, not to mention new FW R&D and prototypes to spill the beans on.

    Wonder what that new material is. I live in the Pacific Northwest and a local company (Lib Tech) has started pumping out "waterboards" which are made of this basalt based stuff that is super durable but light. Cool materials, but so-so shapes. That kind of construction married to shapes by Nev and Dan Mann would be impressive. That having been said, I love my FST El Fuego!
