In the shaping bay with Vincent

"Our twin fin, the Gainsboard, was one of the first surfboard concepts I worked on in 2015. Since then, I have been trying to tweak small things on the bottom contour, rails or the rocker to maximize the performance of the design. Working in the shaping bay is both really fun and physically exhausting but the possibility of surfing a board that I have shaped keeps me excited. I also have the feeling that a shaping bay and the act of shaping itself is the first step to the technical understanding of a surfboard. With experience, I already know more or less how the surfboard will behave. "Mind-surfing" as they say ! Personally, it's more like a sweet mix between a...

La Minute Vee Bottom 2°2°

We wanted to pay tribute here to the golden era of surfing, late 60's / early 70's. At that time, the shaping approach was improving a lot in term of board length, surf style and technique. The concept of the Vee Bottom was born during that era, when Bob McTavish invented this kind of bottom contour... But as surfboards were evolving real quick, this concept was quickly forgotten as people were finding, in the evolution of shaping, some new ways of riding a wave. This board is 7'2, it could be longer, could be shorter. Really playfull and fast due to its low rocker, we love the way it turns and makes the wave. It just feels like being in communion with...

La Minute Karma

Because diversity is bringing more fun and intererest in surfing, it has been a long time we wanted to share this concept of planning hull in action. With this approach of shape, we really wanted to feel the natural flow line of a wave, to be in tune with the wave. Belly bottom, s deck, pretty flat rocker, fin far forward, the design of a displacement hull has to stick to what those legends shapers were doing back in the 70's as Liddle / Andreini or lately Kirk Putman and Tristan Mausse. As we love surfing, we also wanted to bring to this concept a not too ambitious approach but more a natural board which will work also in our...

La Minute planche de surf 2°2°

Here is our Planche de surf, kind of an Egg / Stubby that we enjoy every time we are surfing with...  This was filmed before the lockdown end of October, when we were still able to drive around les Landes to find empty surf spots. Hoping the music is not too melancholic for you guys, but it is kind of the mood we're in these days... Tough period, and even if we are still feeling lucky and grateful to live around the cost line, the lack of liberty & freedom makes us feel bad about the period. Music is one of best way to share emotions and we also wanted to pay tribute to Erik Satie, who was an influential...
