This is what Chris Vail looks like these days. If you don’t know who Vail is I’ll break it down. He’s a singer/songwriter hailing from the beaches of Oxnard. Vail also plays Bass in the hit band “Japanese Motors” Whom he’ll be touring with late this month. You can check the tour schedule here: 

Chris Vail, not only master of bass is quite a stylish surfer, one deserving of his own surfboard model.

Letendre Brand is working with Vail and Young Costa Mesa shaper Tanner Lee Prairie in developing this surfboard model entitled the “VAIL TAIL” due to the large scoop in the deck of the tail. We recently finished designing the logo for this model and the first prototype is in the shop being glassed as we speak. Here’s a sneek peek. Look out for this signature plank in Spring 2009.


Get out there and get a pair. My last pair of these shoes lasted me 4 years before they got stolen out the back a my whip. These rock kickers are comfortable, long lasting and stylish. Go USA!
