A-Side Displacement

Ross & Alex at A-Side are great designers and good friends whose studio is nestled above a little surfshop in the middle of Falmouth in Cornwall. I worked with them on the first edition of September, as well a new book that's due to hit the streets this summer. Stay tuned for details on that. The guys have a fetish for stubby little surfboards, and Ross has this lazy, crooked legged but flowing style. Alex is obsessed with MP, and has been known to hand-jive his way through the pocket nicely. Does he surf like MP? Well, he's got those long, MP-like arms, at least. The boys came back from California recently with a strangely foiled displacement hull. Interesting. It's all about the rail, baby.
