Sunset Semi-Gun

6'10'' TO 8'6"

Sometimes you've got to step it up and this is the board for those occasions.  A good semi-gun outline has that perennial sex appeal and also seems to hold the promise of memorable, adrenaline charged rides. I was taught how to make big wave boards by one of the best, Cort Gion.  He was North Shore underground late 70's to early 90's and this was his favorite kind of board to shape and ride.  I like to bring those old values into my sunset board, retaining volume and foil in the shape, reflective of that era. These days the rocker and bottoms are updated and the outline is a bit less pinny, making subtle but important changes to this classic.  It makes a great thruster, widowmaker 2+1 or best, simply as a single fin. 


This model is available in your choice of:

•    Tint
•    Opaque
•    Semi-opaque
•    Swirl
•    Clear


Bryan uses Burford Blanks exclusively, Silmar Polyester resin, and top quality fibreglass including Volan and “S” cloth. This construction allows for a board which can last 20+ years if looked after properly. This is the recommended build, although EPS/Epoxy builds are possible if flotation is your primary concern.


  • $160 per foot, any resin colours/design included. I can not accommodate for external/customer supplied artwork or airbrushing designs. $300 deposit gets your board underway. Balance due upon completion. Discount available on total for cash sales.

  • $150 for single box or glassed in fin, multiple fin setups vary in cost. All fins handmade by Bryan. All fins besides centre long boxes are glassed on. No fcs boxes..fuck them..
