Wow roach that thing looks interesting, tell me more!
In the very early spring/late winter of '67, Eddy Lister rode for Rible's shop and had a 422, we traded off at the L jetty.
I had a few waves and on the last one, ran up to the nose and had the fin pop out and spin out, no leashes yet and bone freezing water, I didn't want to swim
As I was trying to land on the board, my hands in 1/4" gloves slipped off the rail and I splatted down hard on my left eye brow and was F'n knocked out.
The weird part is, when your out cold, the brain still knows what is going on, but the rest of the body is on vacation. Luckily the icy water revived me before I could try to breath like a fish. That was the last time I ever traded off boards with Eddy Lister
Hey Roach, is that the board you were just talking about? Man, that looks sweet. Love the wide point back, fin placement. Nice!
5'8 fish and 7'something egg.
It is a colab between Kirk Putnam and Brian Hilbers I believe - here is a link to KP's blog if you click the to picture it will take you to the home page and there is more info. http://kpsroundup.blogspot.com/2010/09/90-phd-hot-generation-test.html
My favorite ride this summer, a pintail DCC:
I love that DCC pin. Sweet board. Here's one that got away; a 10' Pearson Arrow "Leo Nordine" custom by Bob. A classic board that really worked on every level: turned well (because of the tail kick and the Guy Takayama fin) and yet really was a supreme noserider. Bladed 50/50 rails throughout, 10'x20"x24"x17"x3.125".
Let it get away because a friend really wanted it. And I had my eye on a 10'6" Mitch Taylor (yes, a Becker ) and I basically got the practically new Taylor for the price of the Pearson which I'd used for a year (but had kept in damn near perfect shape). I still regret letting the Pearson get away, but I've still got the Taylor and love it.
No regrets. Except a little.
The 10'6" Mitch Taylor Model I got after selling the Pearson. Basically the same dimensions as the Pearson, except for the longer length and the 3.5" thickness which made paddling much more pleasureable.
