    Why so triggered Colin?

    My talking about Lance Collins on this thread has nothing personal to do with you or a misspelling from an iPhone interaction. It speaks more to the absurdity of the platform we all hold so dear to us.

    Seriously? Who cares?

    Boards are boards regardless of who thought about them, or what was thought about them, or who shaped them, or who talked about them online, or what laminate is on them.

    Yep. All I was psyched about was seeing Gene and Lance making boards together.

    A fair thing to be psyched on.

    None of my comments are intended to be particularly supportive or nefarious. They are just an objective genuine inquiry.

    Now there is talk of playing pocket pool in public.

    I'm calling BS. If it was a genuine inquiry it would have been asked directly to those who have all of your answers (Gene and/or Lance).

    I can’t wait to pick mine up! Out of all the boards I’ve owned genes have been the nicest in quality and durability. He’s also always been very good to me and always kept in touch. I love checking in on his insta!

    The fact that both Lance and Gene are sharing their expertise and knowledge and have chosen to enlist the craftsmanship and enthusiasm of Adam Davenport in collaboration, speaks volumes for the the stoke and brotherhood of surfing...

    Come on miscreant let’s hear about how super stoked you are. We are all curious if you could get jazzed about cool collaborations and express support. Or maybe just start a thread about whether V Bottom surfboards justify ones existence.......or maybe a poll...or a spreadsheet with trending data.

    For the record, SG...I recently procured a high-end, hand-crafted 9'6 board bag from "Into Blue & Green".

    Artisan craft.

    Ran me near $300...but I was told Laird ran his fingers along the stitching & snickered with girlish delight.

    I thought I heard him murmur "...I've seen tighter cinches in Kalama's mom's something-something..."

    I understand she staunchly disapproved of c-sections...

    Not to mention, Machado would later text me asking me why my name is suddenly coming up over fireside jokes on the north shore.

    I now stare at this bag...and whisper to myself..."what a great collab."
