"Big Steve" Schirmacher with his 12' 2" Skip Frye and his 12' 0" Marc Andreini
Great templates on both of these superb boards, but quite different.
The Frye is a classic, Southern California glider, the Andreini; shaped for Santa Cruz and parts north.
10 years ago, this 12' Andreini spear wouldn't be called anything but a gun. Steve is no stranger to big surf, but says he gets tons of enjoyment, ripping on this and a few of his other similar gliders in medium sized San Diego surf and even on smaller days when a little extra board comes in handy.
L-R, Tim Elsner, Marc Andreini and Steve Schirmacher.
Last year Tim scored two 12'+ Clark Foam Blanks that Marc used to shape these for Tim and Steve.
