EZSC: Nick Maimone
by Ryan M | Nov 05, 2015
EZSC's newest member, Nick Maimone is a young shaper, but after only a few years Nick's been carving out a name of his own under the wing of some of the best shapers in the world, such as Marc Andreini.
This new short by Paul Ferraris is a testimony to Nick's talents as a shaper. Surf Club member, Kyle Kennelly, collaborates with Nick on this project taking Nick's contemporary spin on the classic 1967 panel vee-bottom of surfing's Hot Generation. His New Moon longboard is an all around log shape influenced by mid to late sixties Australian designs similar to Nat Young's Magic Sam from 1966. Rolled bottom and pinched rails, this particular board has more of a pivot/noseride fin on it. The Sam is the board ridden by Schuyler Beecroft and is more similar to Young's '66 version, it has a rolled bottom with thin foil and a very forward placed Greenough flex style fin glassed on. Very turn and trim savvy log. The Hull ridden by Oakland based photographer and artist, Sean Howe, is your archetypical with its widepoint forward accompanied by a big flex fin. Rolled bottom thin foil and down rail/hard edge in the tail and a forward fin placement.
