Josh Mar­tin’s Hot Curl

Be­fore leg­endary South­ern Cal­i­for­nia shaper Terry Mar­tin passed away in 2012, he made an early-‘50s style Hot Curl with his son Josh that was based off the very first surf­board he ever made. “The board doesn’t plane on the sur­face of the wa­ter like a reg­u­lar surf­board does,” says Josh. “When you see dol­phins rid­ing waves un­der the wa­ter, that’s the feel­ing that the Hot Curl gives. It’s like hav­ing a re­ally cool, clas­sic car: you only take it out on Sun­days to get the ex­pe­ri­ence of cruis­ing down Coast High­way that a new car can’t give you.”
