Last year at the Boardroom Surfboard Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, we ambushed John and got him to say a few words about one of his models named The Traveller. This board looks like a ton of fun to ride and hopefully one day we’ll get the chance to jump on one some day!

“This is a 6’3” Traveler and it’s a rounded off squaretail. It’s a straight in the tail and curvy up front template. The nose has really strong double concave up to the side bites. I usually ride this with a smaller stiffer late 70’s inspired single fin and it’s good for knee high to overhead offshore days and the site bites allow you to push a little bit harder and ride it like a modern more progressive type of board. The straight tail rocker gives you a lot of down the line speed. So it works really good at point breaks as well as hollow beach breaks.”
