We got the call the call from WSL a week before the event asking if Timmy Patterson could bring Matt Archbold up to surf Kelly Slater's surf ranch in Josh Kerr's expression session on Saturday night Sept 8th. Of coarse Archy was up for the task. We loaded up the entire crew now that we had our two main guys in the event and made the trek up north to Leemore Ca to the Kelly Slater Surf Ranch Pro. When we got there we were blown away with the technology that was laid before us.
The Matt Archbold model is back and available now. The Matt Archbold Built For Speed has been a Timmy Patterson original design dating back into the 1980's. Archy and his iconic high speed surfing has always gone hand in hand with Timmy Patterson surfboard design. Together they both developed one of the best surfboard models of all time. Matt Archbold has been one of the few in high performance surfing to rock the double and triple wing swallow tails from small wave grovelers
