The current Surfer's Journal (Vol. 17 No. 2) has an excellent article on Michel Junod.
A master’s surfing stands out. You can spot them paddling, or the way they carry their board. “Master” is not an age category so much as a level of accomplishment, and Michel Junod is one in two disciplines: longboarding and surfboard shaping. On both the boards he makes and the waves he rides his lines are clean, pared down to the most efficient and pleasing expression.
