10’1″ Mexican Gun

I built this board out of Parota and Pino.  I made it for Ian to hang on his wall.  It was  a fun build.  It definitely made me want to build another one this size and shape and try and surf it.  I think the amount of paddle speed you could generate  would be amazing.

Mexico II

Posted in Wooden Surfboards on January 29th, 2012 by admin

Doing things in Mexico is always an adventure.  Making wooden surfboards down here is always an adventure. Finding wood, going somewhere to get it surfaced and milled (I am standing in a pile of wood shavings up to my knees in the picture).  The people you meet are always  interesting.  Starting a 6’8″ fishy thing for Terry and finishing a 7’6″ mini mal for Allison.  Just finished a 6’5″ swallow tail quad for Allison.  I have been surfing it and loving the four fins.  Fast and loose but still really responsive.  The 6’5″ and the 7’11″  have been a great combo for the waves in Sayulita this winter.

New Egg and SUP

Posted in Wooden Surfboards on November 29th, 2010 by admin

Fall coming into winter has been busy at Lambrecht Surfboards.  These two boards are reserved for me and my wife.  Spent a week in Tofino,  we had good sized surf  and the Egg was magic.  Easy to duck dive, super loose and fast!!!!!  It was nice to be able to try a bunch of different fin setups.  2+1 seemed to work the best in all conditions. The Egg was built out of a  cedar bench saved from a dumpster.  Built out rails and still have to glass the 11′ SUP.  Just got an order for a 9′ long board and a 6’10″ classic  single fin pintail.  Really excited to have a go at the pintail.  Oh yeah we just got 30cm and have been skiing for a couple weeks.  Tough life.   .

Slow Food Cycle

Posted in Wooden Surfboards on August 18th, 2010 by admin

This last weekend we had Slow Food Cycle

in Pemberton.  Slow Food Cycle is an event everyone should experience at least once.  Through the course of 25 km up the Pemberton valley (via bike) you are able to visit  different farms, sample local food and learn the history of the valley.  All of this is achieved while being outdoors, riding your bike and interacting with your neighbors and friends new and old.  Through the help of the Pemberton Arts Council, I had the opportunity to display some of my boards at Rootdown Organics in the Pemberton Meadows. Sarah, Gavin and Simone have a farm that provides local organic produce to restaurants and farmers markets. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue or hosts.  I had a 5’11″ egg, a 6’6″ round pin, a 8′ log and a 6’4″ swallow tail frame  to hang on their barn. It all looked and went great I was super stoked!

Gonzalez Project II

Now that I had a place to shape Peter’s board (Dingbatz), my next step was to find a place to mill the wood strips for the deck and bottom of  Peter’s board.  The first wood shop I went to had one guy watching the place and he said everyone was on siesta for two months.  The next was owned by Ibis Pena my spanish was just a little bit better than his english. I guess carpenters all speak the same kind of language. Wood is different in all parts of the world, but the machines and tools used to cut and shape it are pretty universal.  I showed Ibis one of my finished boards and explained what I needed done and he said no problem.   When he put a 10″ sawblade on his shaper and started to clamp down a fence I asked “Esta es bien no?” he said “No problem”.   I doubted  him at first but after we ran the first piece of wood through I was already thinking of how I could make a setup like this in my shop.  So far building this board in Mexico without my shop and tools has taught me to improvise with what I have and find a liberating confidence  in my skills as a board builder.
