B: Happy Birthday Mick! What did you do?
M: Beach with the boys and some beers…pretty simple but never disappoints.
B: You are working on a new model, can you give us any details?
M: Matt Calvani and I have gone back to the think-tank to come up with another board. Where my current model is more an all-around noserider with and emphasis on turning and speed, the new one will be more noseride oriented. We have combined a bunch of boards, taking design elements I have enjoyed from a few of the current Bing noseriders and mixing it with some influences from Cooperfish and Con Surfboards. It is a lively noserider that allows a lot of tweaking and control from the nose. Been having a blast on the thing lately, and think people will enjoy it.
B: You and Soren Heil have been working on a new short film. How is it coming along? What should we expect? When will it be done? ( froth )
M: It has been quite the process, filming over the past year. It focuses on my current “mobile” living situation, and how its affected my life. should be out shortly.
B: Can you suggest the best fins to use with the Mr. Rodgers Model?
M: It’s hard to mess with the Greenough 4a, just a great all-around fin. I usually prefer a bit a flex in my fins, you get more drive and projections in turns, and I feel you get more control/steerability from the nose.
B: Any new travels in the near future?
M: There is a potential Mex adventure down the road…but until then looking to do an mission up north along the California coast. Take my time and make a couple pit stops on way. Should be a hoot…

This winter was hard. Was it for you? Did you get good waves? Did you have big, life-shifting moments? Even if you were in Southern California it was really wintery. The weight of the cold months weighed on me like the snow itself. The deep, heavy puddles didn’t empty until just recently.
