Renaissance man Doom Doom Horan has been busy of late... lead guitarist for The Villanaires, all time surf guitar bandits, designer for The Astral Plane, all time tee bandits, and now photographer. Is there nothing the man can't do?

Sage has given us a breakdown of the fish models:
The Vibe is a traditional fish inspired by the early Californian fishes. It has a full plan shape, low rocker, wide swallow tail and wooden twin keels. The Vibe has inherent speed and flow allowing drawn out turns and beautiful trim lines.
The Verve was developed as a high performance fish which feels at home in more powerful waves, in and around the curl. It has a curvy planshape with rounded swallows which allows shorter turning arcs. The natural speed and flow of the fish designs however is maintained.
Verity. “the quality of being true”
The Verity stays true to and is inspired by the early Lis fishes. With a full outline, parallel plan shape through the tail, very low rocker, a wide swallow tail and long based wooden twin keels; the verity gives you a pure fish experience. Although a difficult board to master the Verity allows long drawn out turns in otherwise unchartered areas of the wave.
The Volta is a high performance fish with a pulled in plan shape through the nose and a parallel back plan shape through the tail. Available with wooden twin keels or a quad fin set up for a more high performance feel. The Volta has a lightning quick trim speed and allows longer drawn out turns.

UPDATE: it's official - Matt Cuddihy took out 1st place in the Open Mens at Malibu... on a Valla fish. Congratulations Matty, couldn't be happier for you mate.
Congrats too to Jackson Winter for placing 2nd in the Juniors
This just in from Matt's mum, Di:
..... thought I would give you an update on the contest. Matt has won his first heat and is through to the second round, Josh C has been knocked out, Jackson Winter came in second and is through to the semis. Crusty (Di's words, not mine Phil!!) Phil Jarratt also has been knocked out. The surf was almost non existant on Wednesday but must have picked up. The contest is 6 to 7 man heats with a 15 min heat not real good. Matt, Josh & Jackson are also surfing in the Open Men as well. You can check out the results on www.msaclassic.com
Like Mum, like son - Di has just come in from surfing Noosa 1st Point at the local comp where a sweet swell is coming through she reckons.
