Favorite shortboard I have ever owned. Perfect mix of a fish and a high performance quad. Board goes heaps fast and turns like a hot knife through butter. Not many people know how awesome this board is. Custom orders are the way to go!! - Will Allen

6'4" Channel Twin Prototype:
Matt made this style of prototype for Chris Del Moro last year and I immediately thought the board looked insane. So I asked Matt if I could get one shaped and he made me a 6”4 twin fin loaded with pure fun. This board surfed well in any size or condition. I even rode it in Hawaii. This board proves that Matt is not just a longboard shaper. He can shape any board for any condition. Let him know what board you are dreaming and thinking of because he’s got a board for you. - Will Allen

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.

Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft. 

When and where did you start surfing? Describe your first surfboard.

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
