    Wow, a Joey Thomas website…my gosh, Joey and I go back to the 1970′s Santa Cruz days. Lots of good memories. LOL, right Joey?

    Good to see you’re still loving the ocean and making boards because that is part of what defined your life then and still does. Good going on the martial arts, too. Not surprising you would excel in that sport, too.

    God bless you, Joey, and I’m looking forward to visiting you in Santa Cruz!

    Hey! MY hair is still long! LOL

    Hey Joey !! I am your Mom and what a Joy it has been to have you in my life and Dori too. The next advice I can give you is never put an x husband on a web sight before your Mom ( Smile) Love,

    I just viewed your video on the Surfer’s Journal web site, and wanted to say how great it was to see how well you’ve done over the years. I’ve made contact with the Capo brothers, but have failed to find Pat. Gary thinks he might be in Arizona.
    I’m a retired school teacher now and have started to shape boards. I think back to the wasted years when I could have learned shaping from Gary, Pat, or you.
    Kind regards

    I have a Evolution Santa Cruz California 75 x 20 1/2 #3796. I was hoping you could tell me something about it. I never was much of a surfer but I love to watch the sport and I love this surfboard. It’s yellow with black pinstripes and it has a custom design in green with a Evolution Santa Cruz California surfer logo in black. It’s a really cool looking design. Could this be one of the boards you made? Cool website. Love the video. It always cool to see someone earn a living doing what they love. Best of luck to you. God bless

    Hi Joey,

    Back in the 60′s we shared a lot of waves at D&W. I remember them well. I just stumbled on your web site. I wanted to say hi and I’m happy you’re doing well.
