Always thank you for seeing YES YES SURF blog.
California surfing trip 2018 Day 7.
The picture below shows the rescue by gas deficiency.
The place where the gas is missing is freeway.
I often saw a car that is stopped on the freeway, but it does not mean that they are indeed in the same situation.
On the freeway, as there is no parking or refueling station that can be rested like in Japan, we should have checked the gasoline meter in detail.
It is difficult to carelessly catch up with the unfamiliar distance freeway and the busyness while traveling.
My friend Tomoko was subscribing to AAA (Triple A), so I got a chance.
Thank you! Triple A. Thank you! Tomoko.
Thank you very much for helping me.
By the way, I had a schedule due to unexpected happening from the morning, but Alrik who had taken the apo greeted us with a smile.
Alrik Yuill is a collaborator of AXXE CLASSIC WETSUITS.
He is also a shaper and an artist doing surfboard shape with his own brand "SPACETIME SURF BOARDS".
His atelier and factory seems as if it were the department of the art department.
Drawing picture and sculpture, object, paint, resin, paint, board, furniture, clothing, etc ...
His artwork is also used in trophies of surfing competitions.
He also showed me the shape room.
For a long time, Alrik has brushed his arm with a surfboard factory.
I have also shown many boards shaping with his own "SPACETIME SURF BOARS" now.
First board when he was a child.
His shape board is very unique.
Many EPS materials are used, and many stringerless boards are used.
Asymmetrical boards and fins are located very far in the front, as well as concaves that have never been seen.
Using the knowledge and skills of traditional surfboard shapes that he has learned and cultivated since he was young, I will build a
board with EPS, which is a future material, and expand it to an unknown world we have never experienced yet A lot.
That's why "SPACE TIME SURF BOARDS".
So, just by looking at the board for the hand, I do not know what kind of surfing can be experienced.
So I decided to go to the beach and surf it on the Arlik board.
Pin tail board that you can enjoy even with twin stabi. Let's ride with twin fins.
Fish tail board which can also enjoy even twin stabi. Both are EPS forms and not stringers.
His surfing is beautiful and stylish with a generous line.
The waves were shore break and aggressive, but as expected.
It looks like a good wave, but it is a powerful shore break, almost like a damper.
He will find a break in the wave, and draw the locus freely and beautifully freely at the dug up face.
I also joined the sea and let me take a test ride.
"Speed is amazing".
Board control is easy, the board accelerates gently.
I am very glad that I could surf together with anything else.
Thank you very much for your precious time. Alrik.
