Dennis Pang, Jay Adams and Buzzy Kerbox

“I sat down with Dennis Pang at his home and we talked story. There were so many great moments shared but thought that this story gives great insight to what made him the SHAPER he is today.” – Doug Walker

Dennis Pang

“I had the opportunity to sit down with Jay Adams on the north shore while in between skating. I am so honored to have filmed this story. Jay not only inspired so many of us but will ALWAYS be remembered.” – Doug Walker

Jay Adams

“Ran into Buzzy last year at the Pipemaster’s and we decided to meet for a sit-down to share the collection. I had also made him some prints and one of them created a great conversation of him advancing into the Smirnoff Pro-Am as well as a conversation of Mark Richards and a great life following his passion and contributing to our sport.” – Doug Walker

Thank You Xanadu

Our new 6’8″ x 21.64″ x 3″ Xanadu surfboard he calls the Hot Dog (we had to beg him not to put a hot dog logo on the board)


He told us to get a fin around 7″ and this is what we found – the Kassia Meador by Captain Fin Co.

Quote Of The Day

“Well, I must admit that when we ended-up with both competitors of the men’s final on Mayhems, I was rooting for Kolohe. That said, when the judges awarded Alejo the victory, it was of course rewarding, but also the most bitter-sweet win of my shaping career. Thanks and my congrats to Alejo and huge proud props to my main man Kolohe Andino for stepping-up on the biggest stage in surfing and showing the world the future of the sport. I am so elated and proud of Carissa. We set out to win the title back this year and things have been going as close to as planned as could be expected. To be here on the beach while she wins the event and regains the ratings lead was special.” – Matt “Mayhem” Biolos
