It all started with the fish when the innovative shapers and board builders out there decided to revisit the past for some inspiration. In doing so they brought back some lost skills such as resin tints and hand foiled fins.The Fish Fry has been a place for these fine craftsmen to showcase their skills. We have seen some amazing boards as shapers have pushed the boundaries over the last few years. As this new look at the fish has evolved to its many forms, it has influenced other shapes and designs along the way.This has spawned a renewed interest in other board forms by this same group and a wider following.Notably the Mini Simmons, Hulls, old school Logs and Pigs. It is pleasing to note that there are an increasing number of people building their own boards as well.All of this is to be applauded and celebrated as a positive for surfing.So it is only natural that these shapers and board builders continue to share their skills with us and include these other shapes at the Fish Fry.It has truly become a melting pot of ideas for like minded people.

Merry Christmas

Christmas morning here on the Gold Coast 5.30am. Wet ,Wet, Wet and rain all night, Santa will have a soggy slay for sure. All we want is sun and waves for Christmas as usual , but they have both been in short supply.I hope where ever you are that you have a safe and happy Christmas and some waves in the New Year.Looking forward to a great 5th Fish Fry in March with some interesting guys coming out from the States and new faces keen to be part of the day. Also have some young guns lined up as speakers at the Surf Museum the night before.

Merry Christmas from Grant , Jackie and Nat.
