Here's the latest addition to our fine stable of surfcraft- a range of Wayne Lynch Designs as shaped by Oceanside's Tim Griffin. Tim and Wayne have a history of working together, so it seemed a natural fit for Lynchy to tap the equally low key Griffin to handle shaping his designs here in the US. This means not only that Lynch's classicly informed yet progressive shapes are within reach, but they're available as a hand shaped board rather than a popout or worse. Lynch has worked quietly away from his base in Southern Victoria, largely ignoring both the limelight of being one of the pioneers of shortboarding and the temptation to reproduce his 'retro' models, as in demand as they would be. He's been more inclined to take the subtleties of rail, foil and bottom shape he's developed over years of working to refine shortboards, and incorporate them into older platforms. Lynch builds an epic hybrid step-up thruster, and as befits a man who knows his way around a serious gun, the boards for sale here are from a new range of modern single fins. Tim Griffin, the man who has actually mowed these shapes out, is a fine choice to take on the weight of shaping boards under Lynch's name. He's been working in N. San Diego county for a number of years,below the radar as a matter of choice while building a solid base of happy customers and only now putting his boards out in front of a wider public.

6'7"x 19 3/8" x 2 3/4" blue/light blue tint round pin- $725

As always, if there's nothing here quite right please contact us at info@foamandfunction and we'll gladly organise any sort of custom you want from Tim. We hope to have some of Tim's own widowmakers and 2 + 1 shapes here soon as well as the Lynch shortboard hybrids.
