All the single ladies....

Ben is 6'4" , single and a Taurus. His new stick is 6'6".
He decided to use the popularity of the if6was9 blog to show the ladies his intellectual side.
He likes walks in the park, Putsborough beach and his favourite colour is lemon yellow.

New boards!!

Been busy with custom orders but now have a few stock boards available to you lucky people!

Not hull nor egg. 6'6" x 21 x 2 3/8, smooth rolled entry with double concave through a vee, light 4oz glass, 2+1 fin set up, refined smoothed out performance.

Previously a mini simmons sceptic, this little board blew my mind, make this summer a fun one. This ones not for sale but they are available for custom order.
5'8"x 22 x 2 3/4

The carbon blade. For the discerning logger who wants a board to get radical on. Not for 1ft Saunton. Hipped outline, pinched rails and increased tail rocker.
9'4 x 22 3/4 x 2 7/8

A log by definition. 9'6" x 23" x 3". Pigment top and bottom with vintage fabric tail wrap.

This little piggy went to market. 9'10" x 23" x 3 1/8" pig D fin. Triple cedar stringers, volane glass and fabric deck and fin. Trim machine or if its flat you could use it as a picnic table.


Paul Blacker has been shaping in North Devon for..... a lot of years....
Perfectionist craftsman, check out his boards at or call in at see him at his factory (make sure you have plenty of time as he likes to chat) ha ha. Cheers Paul
