In 1975, at age 18, Dan Moore migrated from the small waves of Florida to Hawaii’s big wave Mecca, encountering “near-death experiences almost daily”. He invested the next 30+ years into huge winter surf and, in 2004, towed into and rode the biggest wave in history: a 68-foot behemoth at Jaws, on Maui.

Surf News, 11 May, 2012 : - - When it comes to enhancing the ride, the board builders' quiver of tools has never been bigger.

Board builders keep tweaking traditional surfboard shapes, re-inventing new out-of-the-box shapes, designing smashing graphics, engineering with material nuances, and exploring dynamic new material combinations. The old standards have been tossed; surfboards will never be as simple as they once were.

Mason Ho uses his magic contest board (the red Driver model by ...Lost) in shallow reef riddled Rockpile and other assorted Hawaii locations. Shoulder season on Oahu takes some creativity to find waves and Mason's got plenty of that. Video by Rory Pringle @ conceptblue.
