    [​IMG] [​IMG] Road trip down to DE yesterday to pick this Beauty up. Great to meet Matt and get to talk for a little while. Really a top notch guy, and a top notch board!! (Recycled these pics from Matt, but will try to snap a few more). Enjoyed the time talking to Matt, and just getting to know a little about why he got into to shaping, and why he does it! Very enjoyable!! The board is Super Sweet, and these pics, although good, don't do it justice. Can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit, so my old bones can get it out there and ride it.
    Thank you again Matt for a really "Sweet" board!! and some Stoke transmission!!

    Stoked for you Todd. PM'd Matt moments after you for this board. Hope you enjoy it.
    Hope it's not too soon, but Dibs if you decide it isn't right for you. Haha!

    Haven't posted here lately but wanted to call some attention to Matt's amazing restoration skills. He took a completely baked 8'5" Challenger Eastern and after a few foam splices, an entirely new glass job and new fin, pretty much made it into a new board again. I am completely blown away by how nice of a job he did on this board, which by the way, is an excellent rider. Anyone on the east coast who has a board they think is beyond the point of return should really check with Matt before writing it off.

    This is by far one of the sexiest vintage boards I have laid my eyes on. Pictures do not do it justice that’s for sure. Well done!!
