The 2013 Wanda Fish Fry is done for another year. What a day!
"On first light it looked to be a beautiful day. Then the southerly blew. We were on location a little early to set up. Pitched the tent and got some boards. Then council asked us move as the clubbies had booked the grass for an event, on que it bucketed down. Still being the faith filled guy that I am , we moved to the grassy knoll across the road took shelter in the tent with Stephen from Mako boards, Adam from tree house shapes and Robbie Marshall (self labeled) it looked dismal. 40minutes later a few more shapers arrived and so did the sun!!! It was perfect timing! We were on!
This year ended up being the biggest so far, with 12 shapers and collectors bringing a total of 86 boards. Fishes, logs, finless, mini Simmons and 70s singles which seemed to be the popular choice of board this year Even had a little hand crafted goods area with hand planes by Lupo Di Mare and board bags by Gonzo Lizard. The whole day went really well, positive feed back throughout the day.
I want to thank everyone that came and was involved in making the day fun and interesting. You know who you are. But a special thanks goes to my wife for supporting my crazy dreams, George G. for filming and Richard from 3rd Shade surfboards for coming straight from a 24hour flight with kids from the U.K and pushing through the jet lag."
