Kyle Naughton Ripping Tavarua

It is good to see that Laguna Republic is making it's way around the world. These shots were pulled off of Facebook. Kyle Naughton (U.C.S.B. Student and Laguna Beach native) is a great guy and a great surfer...I think these shots verify that he can rip with the best of them.

LR in the news and on the web.

An update to this blog is long overdue. Southern California has been blessed with a month of great waves and every surfer I know has had more than their fair share of waves.
There have been several mentions of LR in the news and on the web lately so I thought I would post links to those articles here; sustainablesurfboards this post covers a green board project that Laguna Republic has partnered with the Surfrider foundation on.
surfline this is a great article on laguna surfers with a great shout out to LR.
logalert - this post covers project Alaia. I REALLY enjoy working with wood as a medium. The original 'GREEN'.
Who Loves You? LR does.

LR Rider Sean Kimball Wins NSSA Jr. Championships

On Saturday April 18th, Sean Kimball rode the 6'3" LR Performance Tri-Fin (seen in post below) to Victory in the NSSA Jr. Championships. He came by the shaping bay right after his win with this Mega Trophy. 

The contest was held on the South side of the Huntington Beach Pier in smaller sized waves that require more of the riders skills and abilities to really rip. Sean rose to the occasion and gave the crowd and the judges a show of stylized performance surfing at it's best.

We at Laguna Republic want to extend a big 'CONGRATULATIONS' to Sean for his accomplishment. 

Some of you other Companies out there should take a hard look at this promising surfer for sponsorship opportunities.

project bonzer

Brian working on a Green Foam blank for the Surfrider Foundation. Brian teamed up with Chad Nelsen from Surfrider to shape a Bonzer using a recycled foam blank. Surfrider is hoping to use bamboo fins and maybe a pine tar based resin to make a environmentally friendly board.
