Rick Holt Returns


Rick Holt, legendary South Coast Shaper during the 80’s, is hoping to make an Ocean Beach visit in the near future. Rick was able to pry himself away from his Nico’s salsa addiction and took his “Fine Foil” label over to Kauai where he has been refining his shaping techniques ever since. He worked with Brewer for many years and recently has been working with Titus Kinimaka. For those of you out there who remember Rick’s killer shapes and are interested in possibly picking up a 2015 “South Coast Fine Foil” to add to your collection, please give us a shout out! Rick is trying to plan his trip and is hoping to shape some boards during his visit to O.B. Please feel free to contact Fabiano, Rob, Steve or E.T. if you have any interest or questions.

Checking in with Jonah Pierce

It has been a while since we have heard from Jonah, but with school, work and surfing as much as possible, we totally understand why!

“The past few weeks I have been taking advantage of the consistent waves to shoot with a local photographer, named Ben Sitten. We are working on a video that will hopefully be finished soon. It’s really tricky getting water shots because the section, the photographer, and the surfer all have to be in the same spot. To get a good water shot it is really important to be extremely close to the camera; in the shot below the tail of my board was just half a foot from bens camera, but it still appears to be a few feet away. We have also been shooting in some more illusive areas around San Diego, like the cave shot below, which give a glimpse of the beauty this city has to offer. I’m anxious for some more swell to come so we can get some good clips at blacks, or something a
little more critical. Fingers crossed for this weekend!” –Jonah
