Name: Shanna Grafeld Age: 30 Home break: St. Augustine Florida (formerly South shore O’ahu and Long Island NY back in the day) Years riding: 15 Board size: 40″ Favorite thing about Congo Boards: The boards are made with quality materials in the US Dream surf trip: Indo with good friends and good vibes Favorite Quote: “The ultimate test of your greatness is how you treat every human being” Current board: Custom congo Favo. move: Getting barreled! Board Specs:
I really like the dimensions of the board I’m riding right now because one of the biggest challenges as a lighter rider has been using boards that have way too much float for me. I really like these dimensions : Nose (11.5in), Nose-Wide point (14.25in), Wide point (20.5in-measured from widest point on each rail), Tail (18in), with a single stringer, nose grips, crescent tail, and 55/45 rails, 40″

Congo Introduces its 5 ft Soft-top ” The Fin ” and its 6 and 7 foot Soft-tops ” The Whale”. We start with an M-core Center and laminate it between 2- 3/4 inch pieces of plywood that encompasses the stringer. The 2 pieces of M-core are straddled on each side of the stringer. The Stringers bow makes the contour of the board when it is ripped out of the plywood. (see pics) The M-core is then shaved down and molded into shape. Each board is hand made one by one in Oceanside California. Boards come standard with a twin fin but one can opt for an FCS Twin and Quad variations.
A group of mostly Florida bodyboarders and a few North East coast guys took a trip to Nicaragua. I feel this video depicts the nonstop, pumping surf we scored! Music by Closure in Moscow. Filmed and Edited by Kerry Schrage
