    Wow. Congrats TC. Looks like a ton of fun. Nice bottom contours. Was the squaretail your desire or Sr. Olsen's suggestion?

    Where was the 1k ride if I may ask? Your location being "Hawaii"--7 main islands, Ni'ihau doesn't count--apparently has a good number of breaks. ;)

    For his gliders, the 10’7” have square tails while the 11’3” have pin tails. Because I normally surf Tak’s In The Pink, the square tail was cool with me. Carl is so nice to work with tho; he probably would have put a pin tail if I wanted it.

    As for the location, it was at White Plains Beach on Oahu’s South shore. We were on the outside break which about a 1/4 mile out. I managed to stay with the swell/wave through the next 2 or 3 breaks zig zagging my way to shore.

    Yes, White Plains Beach is the old Barbers Point Naval air station. Although the base was shut down, the feds kept & maintain the beach and its cabins.

    Surfed that a lot in the 70s. First time (recently) that I surfed SanO it reminded me of BP. BP was a great wave for learning.

    Mr. Phillips is certainly gifted. Not only are his boards beautifully crafted, they work so well.

    One has to appreciate the vertical position of the board given the non horizontal position of the ground.
