My friend Nick Blair shapes beautiful surfboards. Aside from being permanently stuck under the feet of top WCT stylist Dean Morrison I keep seeing his joistik logo in magazine spreads and adverts being ridden by a whole host of the worlds top surfers throwing buckets of spray all over the world. It's good to see that the good will out, and that out of the cut-throat competitive world of surfboard design is emerging a shaper with international pedigree and an eye for perfection. On ya Nicko.
I shot a study of him mowing foam a few years back whilst I was living on the Goldie, and since then he's gone from strength to strength, and it couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke.
There's a shipment UK bound in time for Crimbo, so check the website http://www.joistiksurfboards.com/ and get on board.
