Happy Modern Machine Monday! Here we have a really clean custom order. It’s a 6’8x22”x3” modern machine with a swallow tail! Complete with black tint and hot pink and lime green Larry Crow Pinlines. This board is classy with a hint of radical. For more info on the MM swallow feel free to send us an email or call us at the factory and let us help create that dream board. #modernmachine #egg #magic #twinfin #classicnoserider #gordonandsmithhistory #surf #surfing #handshaped #madeinusa #fish #surfboard #artoftrim #gordonandsmith #g&s #gordonandsmithsurfboards #sandiego #california #makingsurfersbetter #since1959

The quarter speed model was developed by Larry and Floyd with input from Mike Hynson and Skip Frye in 1963. It broke away from the traditional “pig” shape by moving the wide point to center, allowing the board to turn much easier from the trim position. Combined with the “user friendly 50/50 rails, this model with a “terrible name” made it a big seller for @gordonandsmith.

We hope you had a great weekend, today we have a really cool stock board, it’s called the “style pro” designed and shaped by @woodisaac. This model is our do it all model from 2-6ft. The softer tucked 60/40 rail blending to a slight tucked edge just before the fins to full tail edge. This rail combo makes for a very forgiving high in the water feeling. This board is very lively with classic attributes. it can turn on a dime or noseride the highline. it blends performance with traditional glide. Laminated right here @customsurfglass These have been really popular lately and we are excited with the feedback! Don’t wait, this board is available now. Please contact us here at the factory or send us an email for more questions. #stylepro #classicnoserider #gordonandsmithhistory #surf #surfing #handshaped #madeinusa #fish #surfboard #artoftrim #gordonandsmith #g&s #gordonandsmithsurfboards #sandiego #california #makingsurfersbetter #since1959

It’s been a couple of months but it’s really good to see our team rider/shaper @woodisaac back in the water again! Here he is riding his Isaac Wood noserider model. Dims are 10’x23.5x3. The IW model is one of our more tested designs. The extra width and added tail rocker makes for one of the best noseriders that we produce. These boards turn well and paddle with ease. But don’t be mistaken these boards have been specially designed for long long noserides. If you want to put in the time this model will elevate your noseriding game to the next level... Here is a little photo from last weekend. Photo by: @erin_cupcake_wood

Today we have another @hankwarnershapes Starfish, laminated in a sharkskin grey, and a cream colored opaque deck, with blue Larry Crow pin lines and matching logos! The “Starfish”pays homage to the retro fish of the 70's but with a positive wing and cambered rail for lift and easier turning, not just the "down-the-line" drive of the classic fish. Available with Fiberglass Keels or Future Fin Systems. Designed for waves knee to overhead. #starfish #egg #magic #modernmachine #twinfin #classicnoserider #gordonandsmithhistory #surf #surfing #handshaped #madeinusa #fish #surfboard #artoftrim #gordonandsmith #g&s #gordonandsmithsurfboards #sandiego #california #makingsurfersbetter #since1959

Here is a cool little modern machine swallow tail. The popularity of this model has grown and we have had a ton of questions lately. Much like the original “modern machine” the theory of “Rounder, Wider, and Thinner”, combined with elements of the Egg, made this a best seller in the mid 70’s. If you are looking for the best all-around board design for everyday surf that’s free-flowing and loose…this is the one! Performs in 80% of conditions. If you can't afford a whole quiver, this board is one to consider.
Features: Flat bottom to slight “Vee” in tail. 70/30 Egg type rails with hard low rails in the tail. Can be ordered as a Single fin, 2+1, Tri fin or Quad! Airbrush by @tablapintura and shaped by Chis, laminated right here @customsurfglass. #modernmachine #twinfin #classicnoserider #gordonandsmithhistory #surf #surfing #handshaped #madeinusa #fish #surfboard #artoftrim #gordonandsmith #g&s #gordonandsmithsurfboards #sandiego #california #makingsurfersbetter #since1959

It’s #Fryeday! Today we have a variety of eggs with a pic of Skip frying an egg! The egg is curved with an “egg shaped” outline, full round tail and catch free rails, the Egg is easy to surf yet it can perform at an extremely high level. The classic egg is one of surfing’s most versatile under-rated designs. Everyone should have one in their quiver.
Features: Flat bottom to “Vee” in tail or double concave depending on fin set up. Can be ridden as a Single fin, 2+1, Tri fin. Upon request, we can make it wider or more narrow as a "Speed Egg". Which Egg is your favorite? #egg #magic #modernmachine #twinfin #classicnoserider #gordonandsmithhistory #surf #surfing #handshaped #madeinusa #fish #surfboard #artoftrim #gordonandsmith #g&s #gordonandsmithsurfboards #sandiego #california #makingsurfersbetter #since1959

The Red Fin
In 1964-1965 started the trend for “signature models” every major surfboard label had a team for competition and specific boards were ridden and designed by the pro surfer himself. It was the start of the royalty system which paid a rate for each model sold and was then passed along to the team rider. During this time @surfer_magazine was doing surfer polls and were making superstars of the most popular surfers. Every move these pros made was being avidly followed by the surfings public. In 1965 according to Larry Gordon. The decision was to be made that when @mikehynsonsurfboards would return from filming The Endless Summer that he design a new board! This resulted in the RedFin! Which became an instant success. Within a couple of years everyone from Black Butch Van Artsdalen, Barry Kanaiaupuni, Billy Hamilton, Skip Frye and Neal Norris we’re riding them from San Diego to the North Shore of Hawaii. The Red Fin was and is one of @gordonandsmith surfboards best sellers and is still coveted by collectors today! Here is one of our beautiful Red Fin replicas shaped by @darbysurf.
