Liddle Inbetweener Model

Greetings, Shredderz! I myself am not a huge Liddle guy. I have yet to ride one, and riding some of Marc Andreini’s boards is the closest I’ve come to surfing a proper hull. I’m sure I’ll get around to it someday, so if you see me and I’m muttering to myself about minute…

Hoy Runnels for Joel Tudor & THC Surfboards

Greetings, Shredderz! If you read Shred Sledz, you know who Joel Tudor is, and he’s probably had some influence on what boards you ride. Whether it was being the sole longboarder to earn the grudging respect of the potato chip surfboard-obsessed surf media in the 90s or 2000s, or his continued championing of…

1977 Herbie Fletcher Surfboards Ad

Greetings, Shredderz! I can’t imagine many of you are wondering about my pet peeves, but here goes. If you’re the type of person that chops up a perfectly good surf magazine to sell each of the ads one by one on eBay, I think that’s lame as hell. And this is probably the…

“Two Extreme” Dextra Surfboards Ad

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got a Dextra Surfboards ad from the late 60s, I’m guessing. Dextra was one of the many so-called “pop out” manufacturers that were popular in the 60, referring to the fact these boards were mass produced in molds, versus traditional shaping methods. Based purely off of how many Dextra…

Dancin’ with Jack Coleman

Greetings, Shredderz! Surf filmmaker Jack Coleman is back with not one but two tidy little edits. “Doin the Dance” features some formidable female talent, and it clocks in at a tidy 2:56. At this point has Steph Gilmore done more for the white wetsuit than Kelly Slater? Coleman also dropped “Beautiful World” a…
