I will admit to not knowing Greenough started his life as a waterman standing up, but yes documented here https://www.insidesport.com.au/news/george-greenough-a-true-pioneer-of-surfing-422149 and http://www.weekendhippie.com/weekend-hippie-stories/2016/6/19/in-the-greenough-room-george-greenough

both nice articles and although Greenough was on his knees or prone by the time he gained worldwide recognition a huge influence on standup shortboard riding nevertheless.

I haven't listened to the podcast yet, so not dissing anyone in any way whatsoever, but the subject of kneeboarder's influence on surfing is interesting. Steve Lis kneeboarder, the seed for Reno Abilliera's "semi performance twin" (my words), which in turn the seed for Mark Richard's performance twin http://markrichardssurfboards.com/blog/2012/05/the-bumblebee-flies-in/

MR performance twin fin positions were the starting point for the front fins of Simon Anderson's Bells winning revolutionary thruster design as documented in Anderson's excellent biography "Thrust". I bought this book, a lovely "coffee table book" with nice pictures and an interesting and enthralling account of Anderson's career as pro surfer and surfboard shaper to date (although skipped the BASE drama which must have been painful).

I think he elaborated on that a little bit, possibly due to the convos on here about his hand shaping?


Yeah, I could feel a slight prickliness regarding that part. It was like he really wanted it known that he was core. Fair enough. If I was a genius, I'd get pissed with a bunch of internet nerds talking shit about me and it getting passed around as gospel.

Talking Handshaping a few over 10 - 15 years could piss shapers off who handshaped 1,000's for a real living supporting themselves and thier families if they had .

Not easy work , involves constant improvement , and expense .

Again a non issue in todays surfboard world .

Some of the machine cutters i've used have become very good board builders - never handshaping .

GWS would do well with his experience and he wouldn't even have to finish them dancing

Hey... Im just trying to get to the bottom of this... Im a seeker of truth! I got no beef with Greenough. From what i've heard and read he was a brilliant inventor and genius waterman who hugely influenced surfing. I just want to debate this issue in a reputable forum. Maybe even set the record straight.

Did George stand up or what??

The 2 links that Mr. J posted both say that George was NOT a stand up surfer... he was a knee boarder and matsurfer.

This is an excerpt from the article in the 1st link:
{He haunted the beautiful terrain and surfed the immaculate waves of Hollister Ranch, but was never a fan of stand-up surfing. The last time he stood on a board was 1961.}

This is an excerpt from the article in the 2nd link:
{By his early teens, Greenough (pronounced greeno) himself had already abandoned traditional surfing in place of kneeboarding and soft mat-riding, two sports few others were participating in at that time. "I really never liked the longboard, it had no flexibility or spontaneity," recalled Greenough from his home near Byron Bay, Australia.}

{George was the clubs only non-surfing member. He never stood up on his board, he never cut or even combed his hair, and always was a bit disheveled, but he was a very inventive guy, and certainly a great waterman. Arlen Knight, Santa Barbara}

Yup! I sure did. I rode the Italo Ferreira Pool Party model. Ask Timmy or Scott about it. They helped me out with the board!
