Cord – Board Raffle for Centrepoint
TWIN FIN MENTALITY
“The first time I made and surfed a Humbucker was for this film.” Cord Surfboards shaper Markie Lascelles is talking about his latest project ‘Twin’ Dir. Roger Sharp, which premiered at LS/FF on Friday 2nd December at The Genesis. “I just had an idea of a twinny I wanted to make that was short but went in good waves. I had been playing around with a lot of different twins at the time so it was kinda a mix up of all of them plus a few new features.”
“I took it out on a big windy day at this spot, paddled into my first wave, and went straight over the falls. I was a little nervous at the point to say the least ha. Then luckily the next wave that came my way was a beauty and we just grew from there. Now it’s my favourite board in solid waves!”
RAFFLE FOR CENTREPOINT
Markie is our shaper from home. He has board making in his DNA and now heads up Cord Surfboards. It got us thinking about the notion of home and what it means for those facing the prospect of winter without somewhere to go. That’s why this year, through the board raffle, we raised £500 of essential funds for Centrepoint – a charity that helps young people who are facing homelessness.
Thanks again to everyone who donated. This beautiful board now has a new home in Wales. If you would like one for yourself drop Markie a line.
