Alley Fish Fry 2013, Currumbine, Australia

"It all started with the fish when the innovative shapers and board builders out there decided to revisit the past for some inspiration."

Una pietra miliare nella surf culture mondiale:
The Alley Fish Fry 2013 da Gold Coast, Australia

 Torna la "creatura" della mente di Grant Newby, con il nuovo appuntamento di Febbraio a Currumbine, QLD, Australia.

L'evento dedicato alle tavole retro-style, fish, simmons, finless, hull e via dicendo. Un ritrovo tra amici, un'esperienza unica e l'opportunità di conoscere e scambiare idee sull'evoluzione delle linee d'acqua più in voga al momento. Keep up the retro-movement!

Descrivendo l'evento, Grant scrive:

"... In doing so they brought back some lost skills such as resin tints and hand foiled fins.The Fish Fry has been a place for these fine craftsmen to showcase their skills. We have seen some amazing boards as shapers have pushed the boundaries over the last few years. As this new look at the fish has evolved to its many forms, it has influenced other shapes and designs along the way.This has spawned a renewed interest in other board forms by this same group and a wider following.Notably the Mini Simmons, Hulls, old school Logs and Pigs. It is pleasing to note that there are an increasing number of people building their own boards as well.All of this is to be applauded and celebrated as a positive for surfing.So it is only natural that these shapers and board builders continue to share their skills with us and include these other shapes at the Fish Fry.It has truly become a melting pot of ideas for like minded people."
