    Both those Boards look like a 1950s style Pig. The 1960s Pig were more in the vain of what Nat young’s Magic Sam. Fin moved up the board and wide point not as far back. More of a Balanced Templet. I have been riding wide point back Longboards since the mid 1990s. Loved the Nat Young Surfboards that Takayama shaped in the mid 1990s with a two side bites.

    I ended up scoring the Phillips Pig yesterday, and echoing everyone else, Mark was super nice and easy to deal with. He's delivering the board to my brother's house this afternoon. Can't wait for these restrictions to be lifted to go pick it up!

    I'm up in San Francisco and the board is at my brother's place in San Diego. I've been laying low due to the COVID, but I'm hoping to get down there this summer to pick it up. When I do, I'll post pics!
