Stringerless logs (9'+) for myself and i'm assuming other shapers, have often fallen into the 'too hard' basket.
That being said, they do offer a unique aesthetic and the extremely dense tow blank foam that lends itself well to logs shifting the weight from the outer shell to the core giving further momentum to maintain trim in small and weak surf.
Thus far stringerless logs have been limited to my Pig shape.
They excel in 1 - 3ft surf with a narrowed nose and widened tail which results in an easy paddle, pivot off the tail and still holds its own on the nose.
In the quiver for summer.

Although no longer in vogue since the resurgence of the mini-simmons, the fish
stills holds its own with a nice combination of curves and its
ability to tear down a high line at your local

The JD is quickly becoming the all rounder log for the boys at the longboard club. We have decided to offer these up with an area pin to more control on slightly bigger days and riding backhand in general.
The concave has been blended to give lift in the nose and to encourage waterflow through the board. This is a good starting point for anyone looking to get a bit more
I am a surfboard builder, making my small mark on a very large industry. I make all of my boards by hand from start to finish using traditional surfboard building techniques to draw clean lines and apply bold colours influenced by 1930' s to 1960's surf culture.
