Funny - logo reminded me of the Naish one.
The SA SUP(s) are for Demo at the Simon Anderson Shop in Manly. Noticed that one was hanging out side with a big red SUP Demo sign on it this morning on my way to work, think it was an 11' board.
There's also a 10-0 SA in Wicks at Collaroy and the logo is derived from the Anderson Clan family Emblem and moto 'Stand Sure' albeit with a Oz twist
And for those interested a bit more detail from the man himself:
The Water Buffalo 11’ x 30” x 4 3/8” Round Tail
6 ½” nose rocker and 4” tail rocker flat bottom to double concave vee, single fin at 8 ½ up and side fins at 15” up from the tail. The Water Buffalo is my personal all round board and recommended for surfers 85 – 110 kilos in waves 1 – 5 feet. It has enough bulk to be a good still water paddler plus is stable in the surf while waiting around for waves and will catch waves smoothly when they arrive. For an 11’ board she performs well on the wave face with feel good cutbacks and power bottom turns.
