After much deliberating and loving shaping Rich has recently completed a mini-quiver of three boards for our good friends at Amplitude Boardsports. These will be the first ever 'stock' boards produced by Thirdshade as all boards up to now have either been custom jobs for friends or made purely for pleasure.
In the end he went for a retro keel fish, a high performance quad fish and a round tail quad. He will no doubt have more to say on the matter another time (and maybe some more pics) but right now he is busy holed up shaping again and doing a few board repairs for the boys.
In the meantime catch the interview he did with Martin at Amplitude for a bit of an insight into some of the inspiration and ethos behind Thirdshade.
