Ryan Lovelace Shapetastic Voyage Coming to Cornwall

The one and only Ryan Lovelace will be doing a spot of shaping right here in West Cornwall this September (on the back end of his global Shapetastic Voyage).

So if a custom V-Bowls, Rabbit’s Foot, Piggyback or anything else by the Californian wizard takes your fancy, get in touch and we’ll sort something out.

He’ll only be here a few days (exact dates t.b.c.), so numbers will be limited. If the speed we sold out of his V-Bowls is anything to go by however, you’ll be wanting to get your order in sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment!

Some of his models…

A rippable, versatile mid-length displacement hull that takes inspiration from Wayne Lynch’s Evolution.

A radically asymmetric Alaia (finless surfboard) developed in tandem with Dan Malloy.

Rabbit’s Foot – a truly unique Alaia

A loose yet drivey performance twinnie best suited to decent waves in the 3-6 ft range. Can also be made as a quad for weaker waves. Utilises a simple bottom shape for smooth drive and flowing arcs. Surf it a couple inches shorter than your standard shortboard.

Lovelace Piggyback

Based on the original Greenough Spoon, this scooped out design takes flex and sensitivity to a whole other level…In the words of R.L.: “They ride lines you’ve only dreamed about with feelings that are impossible to grasp in words. Truly a unique ride and demanding craft that will test your dedication.”
