High performance aerial shreddery is all very impressive. But whatever happened to style and flow? What happened to soul, man? Santa Barbara shaper Ryan Lovelace has a surf craft called v.Bowls, a modern shape based off of the widepoint-back stylings of Wayne Lynch in the late 60′s. Here fellow friend Trevor Gordan arches his 7'10 into a few runners.
