    Favorite 60’s

    I have ridden my Morey Pope John Peck Penetrator , my G&S Midget Farrelly Stringerless, my Gordie Noserider and my Con Ugly. I guess my favorite was the Stringerless followed by the Penetrator. I enjoy riding my modern longboards much more. That being said, if someone has a 10' Surfboards...

    can anyone help me better understand (surf) nostalgia

    This is interesting. I grew up in Monmouth County (Little Silver) and my second surfboard was a Challenger Eastern received in May/June 1967. We probably surfed many of the same breaks there. This is what I remember as well and I have many of the same refections. Surfing now at First Street...

    Board(s) you're sitting on and can't / won't sell and why

    I am sitting here in the Dermatologoist’s office waiting for a procedure. I have 71 surfboards. I have been collecting them since 1971. I have 5 that are my current use boards and they cycle in and out. The others are ones that are interesting or unique or something. I very rarely sell these...

    Lasik and Surfing

    I have worn contacts surfing since 1971. Works for me. I understand that when I have cataract surgery it should correct my vision.

    Surfing shoes?

    I need to protect my feet/toes while surfing this summer when we are out of boots. I would prefer relatively light weight that stay on one's feet well. I know I can cut down old boots, but I would rather use something else. What do any of you use? Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

    Board you would consider trading/selling if the offer was right?

    I am considering selling my Greg Noll Stemwinder and perhaps my '66ish Weber pig shape (not the later Weber Pig).

    Longboard finds - not deals

    I'm guessing that the Challenger Eastern will be more valuable in New Jersey than here. I my guess is $750 would be a closer value. I could be the only Challenger Eastern fan in this area. My second board was shaped by Tinker, or that's what he told me. :) I used to hang at the shop back in...

    Robert 'REDMAN' Manville

    Red made me a number of WRVs over the years. They were all amazing boards, alas I sold them to get others. He was a great shaper!!!!

    Looking for information on a Weber Performer

    I got into Kiernan the last year it was in existence, I used to lust after the Webers, but I got a Challenger Eastern from Tinker West instead. You know Tom Eadon? He made me an amazing board for small and medium sized Hawai'i when I lived there. I sold it on the East Coast when I moved back...
