Chris Christenson is coming to Pukas

Christenson Surfboards at Pukas Surf

In 1992, Chris Christenson’s shaping career began with a six-year apprenticeship to shaping legend, Dick Brewer, perfecting the skill of shaping boards under Brewer, and the influence of his then neighbour, Skip Frye. His board designs reflect these influences with a combination of classic lines and progressive creativity. Walk through his factory and you will see an eclectic range of boards under construction..longboard next to a gun, a glider next to mid length..single fins..keel fins and thrusters.

For a short time Chris Christenson will be shaping boards at the Pukas factory in Northern Spain so if you have always lusted over one of surfboards now is the time to get a custom order in..  Here’s just a few of the models available…

Chris is at the Pukas factory shaping boards between the 15th June and 25th June, so if you want to get your hands on one of these, have any queries, or quite simply fancy a good old fashioned chat about anything at all, drop us a line on +44(0)1736 757025 or talk to one of our board freaks via email at info@downthelinesurf.co.uk

£150 Off All Firewire Vanguards

A Retrospective Appraisal

The Firewire Vanguard, a game changer.

The Vanguard is a diamond nosed modern planing hull (MPH) designed, pioneered and refined by Daniel”Tomo”Thomson. The distinctive ultra parallel (straighter) lines running nose to tail allow the board to be ridden smaller and narrower than previously considered functional. The parallel outline reduces drag, increases planing lift giving more speed.  The rectangular nature of the board makes it stable and the narrow central wide point will allow for fast rail to rail transitions. Add multiple concave bottom contours for added lift through flat sections of  a wave and the end result is a design that is fast, responsive and easy to control.

But don’t just take our word for it, why not come in and try our demo board and experience  the difference.  Over the last few years the Vanguard has been superseded by the Nano, Evo and Vader, but it remains the foundation and blueprint for all those later models.
