    @garagefull: Wow, great work. You guys sure are handy. I will have to step up my game!

    @Veterano: Yeah, that's kind of what I figured. If I am super stoked by the ride and really wanted to do some fine tuning in the fin department, I figure I can always consider getting a Vaquero, which is probably more refined in all the right areas anyway.

    I've got my fingers crossed for a session on it this week, mid-week probably. Although, the tides may not be agreeable so we'll see.

    They were some funky boards built in the transition era. But if you get a good one, it might open the door to new experiences. A buddy bought a transition Petrillo, just for fun and because he had a Petrillo as a kid. When he showed it to me, I said "that's a hull". He rode it a few times and liked it, so I loaned him one of my modern hulls. He got hooked and bought a modern Liddle, which he probably rides more than anything else he owns. The old Petrillo doesn't get much use, but it served as the key to getting into hull riding. Consider yourself warned!

    Btw, all me boards prefer to stay wet, and I prefer to keep them happy- any jammers ever wanna play with some trannies, let me know. They're meant to be used heavily, not preseved.

    Look just as good on a wall broken, so what's the point

    I always say; "Wall hanger? Hang it on a 6' foot wall, see how it goes."
