Ellis Ericson has been in the Deus Bali Custom Bay designing a quiver of gems. While he’s not working on new designs he’s been seen destroying the coastline with his beautiful girl bronzing shoreline. When asked why he chose to shape what he did he responded with:

“I’m heavily influenced by the transitional period in surfing , specifically 69, 70, 71…A lot of radical and innovative board design were being produced in that small amount of time, and i like looking back on that period and having a crack myself – the boards I’m shaping at Deus have a traditional tracker outline ( high wide point , pulled in pin tail , pinched 50/50 rails , bit of a belly and slight vee out the tail ) and i have found these types of board to work really well in clean conditions and tube-ride exceptionally well, so that was the only really basic logic behind me shaping this type of board over here….I kinda shaped that board to tap into the source and feel the juice.”

He’s a thinker!
