Point Concept

Posted by Beamer

So I recently picked up my new surf van and headed on a road trip to Santa Barbara for a few days to build a new board with friend Ryan Lovelace of Point Concept.

The project: 4’11” (21″ wide, 2.25″ thick) Velosim shaped, glassed, and surfed within 24 hours.

Ryan’s a total prodigy. An absolutely phenomenal shaper who has perfected his craft at the ripe age of 24. His hulls have changed how I look at surfing, and my new my new board has changed my style forever.

The outcome:

If any of you are considering a new sled, or never ridden a displacement hull before, look no further.

We took it for a spin at the local favorite the next morning. This board screams. Thank you Ryan. And most importantly, thank you Herbie.


Everybody go check out his boards, follow his blog, and get out in the water.

Keep track of surfing adventures on my blog semi-radical.

If I had more plugs, I’d put them here.

That is one sweet looking board! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in that shape before…looks like an old skateboard deck.
