I am taking a hiatus from shaping during December. I need to reassess, reorganize (some would say organize period), and hopefully recharge for the next phase of the Bonzer Project. My concern is that I spend these coming years fully engaged with the dynamic elements required to produce my best work. Duncan and I have never taken the Bonzer Project lightly, with a ‘going through the motions’ mentality. I’ve been shaping 44 years and in order to remain fully energized it will require an adjustment in strategy. That will be this months task, as well as catching up on things left in the wake of my ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ M.O.
The Bonzer 5 will turn 30 this year, and still has some frontiers to cross. Its full potential has not nearly been realized. The fact remains that very few top level surfers and shapers have seriously experimented with it. Only time will tell if this will change. In the mean time I’ll remain behind the curtain and attempt to improve my shaping. The ‘work’ is what is important. For Duncan and I the Bonzer is an assignment for a lifetime, and we intend to play it out. Many thanks to all of you who have, and continue to enjoy the Bonzer Ride.
Peace and Love to all for the Holidays and beyond,
