Last night in Venice SWELL hosted a party with 400 of our closest friends to unveil the best surfboard inthe world. Really, how else would you get an unbiased winner than giving a top WSL surfer 10 unlabeled boards and cutting him loose in Western Australian ramps? Well, the winner was DHD Surfboards and Daren Handley was over the moon as he as handed a framed cover of his Stab in the Dark Covershot.
In typical Stab Mag style the party was littered with eager coeds and a cinco de mayo open bar that set the place on fire. Photos by Matty Wong
The Stab in the Dark mini-documentary drops on Stabmag.com at 10:30am Thursday, Pacific time. It’s 15-ish minutes long and features one of the world’s most technically perfect surfers pushing himself on bespoke (but blind date) surfboards in Western Australia over 10 days. You won’t wanna miss it. We’ll also be dropping a short profile series on the shapers in the coming weeks. Stay tuned. (more…)Thank you for visiting the Swell blog.
