    Beautiful aren't they! Looks like most are going to Japan. Probably just a fad anyway, Like those edge board thingamajigs. ;)

    Aloha,
    There is a version 1 and 2, maybe a third.
    They are beautiful.
    Interested in a ride report.
    Have not heard anything about the ride and glide?

    Patiently waiting for any version in any length and any color at any time. I love me some Gene koolaid and Lance is just added sweetness.

    Yup. Gene is a true believer in the v bottom. I’ve had three from him over the past 15 years or so. These have been ridden and refined by Gene over many many years. Not a fad or a gimmick. He told me what the deal was a while ago. Pretty sure is Lance’s nose. Maybe his rails? I may have mentoned it earlier in this thread. Regarding Lance, what’s wrong with him staying stoked and trying new things? Just because he may or may not have a long history with the design in no way invalidates his enthusiasm for a project with his buddy of many years. Not everyone gets stuck riding / designing a single shape for decades.

    I turn 50 next year. Hoping for one of these for my birthday present to myself.
