Chapel Porth looking heavy in the corner.

Flat rock.

Looking south, now that's a lot of whitewater...

greenough 4a 7
Green, purple, yellow!

I've been itching to try out this new Greenough 4a 7" that I got from Finshack.

Got a chance today in some clean chest high waves - instantly felt good, really smooth underfoot, easy to draw out turns yet nice and snappy on quick directional change. I'm a happy chappy!

FluidJuice signature
Another work of art from the hand of Adrian Phillips.

Adrian Phillips is one of the nicest guys you could meet, he's also one of the best surfboard shapers in the country. Combining a huge wealth of experience and knowledge with a grommet's enthusiasm he continually produces top-quality boards for his Fluid Juice label. He very kindly took a break from the shaping bay to answer a few questions...

Where did you grow up?
South coast of Cornwall.

When did you start surfing and what got you interested in it?
12 yrs old and my school had a surf club.

I know you trained as an electrician, so what prompted you to start shaping surfboards?
I started repairing my own and my friends boards and it was a natural progression.

Did you learn or apprentice with anyone as a shaper?
Back then you just had to have a go and learn from everywhere you could. Shaping methods were closely guarded secrets.

Can you tell us a bit about the origins of Fluid Juice?
Initially I just shaped my own boards and then friends starting asking for boards and the circle got wider and wider.
