We got to the final of the #Stabinthedark presented by @stab. We did the boards at the start of the year @euroglass . I watched some footage of @lfioravanti ripping 8ft Coxos🇵🇹on a model we have been working on and thought that one will do! (I will try and locate that footage). I was kind of hoping Indo would be like that. I guessed the surfer might of been @jordysmith88, not many top pros that big who surf that good so I was hoping it was him. Leo's board was 5'11 1/2 x 18 3/4 x 2 5/16, so to take it up to 6'2 1/2 x 19 1/4 x 2 9/16 required some time redesigning. You can't let the computer do that kind of jump in size as 9 out of 10 it won't end up how you want. There has only been a handful of surfers test that board this year and none nowhere close to as big as Jordy. So it really was a Stab In The Dark, but fun to watch Jordy this morning on the Stab Mag site.
Most shapers who do a lot of boards can get a good board to the best of the best, the hard part is matching the models you have to the style of the surfer as everybody surfs different. The blank was a @burfordblanks ultra light with 4x4oz glass and a tail patch.

Thinking of re-releasing the #Flare 🔥 but with a round tail. As you can see, it had quite a bit of #concave. Just getting @lfioravanti a test model in his size to give his version of feedback. He’s good for that😜our boy. @euroglass #2018

I love when ‘know-it-all’s’ tell you about surfboard design.. Well, I AM a Know-it-all, and I know NOTHING. 5’11 1/2 x 18 3/4 x 2 5/16 something model for someone 🤔🧀

The most westerly point of continental Europe, #CaboDaRoca #Portugal 🇵🇹 I took this pic on a rough winter day over Christmas with not much to do but look around and no one around. I love raw landscapes and this place carried a presence. Sailing, discovery, a world before what it is now. I really like Portugal.
@ed.woolner purchased his #NewBarcelona through @boardshopuk 👍🏻. Designed to do exactly this, extract every little bit of whatever is on offer in poor conditions to maximize fun. Thanks for the pics Ed. 📷 @siemmettphotography

More of a #stunned walk today than a #stunning walk on the beach. #Plastic has the chance to #kill everyone on this #planet 🌍 This is just one part of a beach in #Southwest #France. Imagine if it was suddenly dumped on the streets of a city🤔 #lollipop sticks!!! Far out #chuppachups get real!! #plastictoys #bottletops Follow @theplasticproject @theplasticproject @theplasticproject if you want to be aware😳
Probably the best place for waves in Europe at the moment.. #Rome. With the best surfer in Europe, @lfioravanti tearing his true home break, Banzai😜🇮🇹 The Roman on a Roman tearing Rome🍕🍝5’11”x 18 3/4 x 2 5/16 @euroglass 📷 @pierocapannini
#Portugal is unreal. It’s raw and it’s cool. This is #Nazare, one of surfings big wave mega spots. Tomorrow will be massive and many a tow crew from around the world will be having a crack. These pics are all taken from the lighthouse that overlooks the break and the town. I forgot to ‘feel up’ that huge green @schaperhawaii gun of @mcnamara_s !!

Some might say, absolutely ridiculous! But to @noa_dupouy these boards are serious equipment.
6’6”x 16 7/8 x 2 1/8, 6’0”x 16 7/16 x 2 1/16 CB1-HI, 5’9”x 16 3/8 x 2 CB1, 5’4”x 16 3/8 x 2 CB1-R.
For Hawaii man🍍🏝🌺 @euroglass
Gliding through the lip with speed and control is one of surfings pleasures if you do it right. This is @stanleynormansurfer 😎 doing just that. 5’1” x 16 3/4 x 2 #Roman 📷 @jasondreyerimages

Had a lot of fun working with @lfioravanti this year. He’s an absolute champ and I love him. A lot of things didn’t go his way 1st year on tour but he had some moments of brilliance and his surfing is definitely world class. We will change our attack slightly for 2018 but for sure Leo being Leo will keep it fun for him and his huge amount of fans that follow him. Thanks for 2017 Leo. @euroglass 2018 we’ve already started and the #46 will be tearing into it☀️ #theRoman

@bradleynorris on a tow board we’ve worked on. Yes, the consequences of design are high. Injuries, career, someone’s life.. 📷 @kimfeast_
Always have a good time with the crew at Cobra working on some tech stuff. Thanks Kym, Riccardo, Bruce, Nan and the rest for making it happen👍🏻🙏🏻
I don’t care how anybody goes at #Pipeline except @lfioravanti, hope you smash it Leo!🇮🇹🌴🎄🍍🍾🏆 And I’m sick of seeing that shark 🦈 bump that guys head. 📷 @cidoubleyou
When it comes to guns, everybody’s a know it all😒But I listen to @thomasportet our French salesman @euroglass as he knows what he’s talking about. This is Thomas and I arguing over what we do next year for the #Grunt Gun stock model. #widenose #narrownose ??😝
There are no rules in shaping surfboards. You do it however the hell you want🤷🏻‍♂️ Pulling screen is all in the angle of the hands👐🏼 pic by my mate @vincentkardasik @euroglass 🍳🥓

@koasmith likes the #Roman model. 5’11 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/4. This one is a 6’0” the same but with a round tail. Don’t know what the round tail did but it flew🦅
Sometimes @lfioravanti and I work on some really good stuff. This is a 6’6” version. You’ll see😯👍🏻 @euroglass
