Joel Tudor And Friends Test Local Boards On Local Waves | Shed Sessions: North County San Diego

“Everything rides,” says Bird Huffman of Bird’s Surf Shed. “You should expand your surfing horizons and capabilities.”

“Everything Rides” should maybe take over the “Ride Anything” moniker for our zeitgeist of board experimentation. Way cooler of a phrase. And hey, Bird gets it. One look at the smorgasbord of surfboards in the Shed tells you that.

Speaking of which, for this episode of Shed Sessions, Bird picked about as random an assortments of boards as you could imagine, most of which are from North County, San Diego shapers. A bonzer from Leucadia wizard Gary Hanel. A progressive late ’60s single fin log from Don Hansen. A squirty little 5’2″ fish from Sunset Surf Shop’s Ed Wright. Even tossed in a flex-tail thingie as a non-North County wildcard from Allan Gibbons, a legendary figure who ghost shaped for Al Merrick for a long time, just to throw an even odder board into the mix. We sent Joel Tudor, Derrick Disney, Jake Marshall, and Duran Barr out to put ’em through their paces.

Bird was right. Everything does ride.

Here’s the quiver for this episode:

Gary Hanel Bonzer 6’3″ x 19 1/2″ x 2 5/8″

Don Hansen “Hustler” 9’6″ x 22 3/4″ x 3 1/8″

Sunset Fish 5’2″ x 21″ x 2 3/4″

Alan Gibbons “Reflex”: 6’0″ x 19 1/2″ x 2 1/2″

  1. So cool. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My Spanish lit. Teacher is told me she was Don Hansen’s sister. She said she still has those 13 foot redwood boards in her house. Crazy

  3. The yellow fish board was prevalent around early 70's. I remember this guy from Florida won the Carlbad summer camp surf contest with one of those thick wide fish twin fins. This guy- Jeffrey Johnson, I think,  could cut big hanging bottom turns on the thing. I got 2nd, there were three of us total. Hah-hah.

  14. Great video. I lived in Cardiff when I was young and moved back there when I was old. I remember when Hansen's was in Cardiff, first shop for him. Birds Surf Shed is a natural surfing treasure. If you're in San Diego it's a must stop. He's a good dude too.. Now I'm back living in Thailand again and I get home sick when I see North County surf videos.
