    I know what you mean. I remember sometimes in the afternoon, I would go down to the harbor, and take my Boston Whaler out and ride the white caps all by myself just to get away for a while.

    Trust me... We wouldn't mind if you flew away for awhile!!:) And by "We" I mean Jeff Pupo and I. In case you don't know he's the other half of why these surfboards look phenomenal. He's the best sander, glosser, polisher in the business. My website has a separate page "Master P" glorifying him. Does "The Boss's"? Ohh that's right... You have one glorifying your Bing collection!!!

    There goes my blood pressure again (reaching for my George Michales album). Need a soother....

    Here he is "Master P".

    Hi Zeph,

    I read your profile on your website and I am impressed with your history. I also know that if Gene picked you to work with him that you must be very good at your craft. And I don’t care what music you listen to as long as it’s on your ipod. :cool:

    yeah zeph, i totally agree with you on that. except i think you should take a good look at your math.

    jeff's been with me since i opened the factory and he's the guy that makes it all come together. best sander, glosser polisher in the world, great craftsman. he's even shaping under his own label now.

    take note monkeyboy and slim, he shaped this one for gnar gnar by hand. glassed, sanded, glossed and polished it to.

    Whew.... Thanks Bing (ASS KISSING BEGINS IN 3...2...1...) I'm honored to know you've looked at it. If truth be known (Don't tell Gene) i've drooled a few times on the Bing collection page @ his website. I think we've all taken a page from the D.N. Noserider... (on my knees bowing) I'm not worthy!!

    About "The Math". I know.. It takes 3 to tango in Ventura... The "other half" was in reference to how many (we love "The Boss" (building boards purely for the love of the "Craft")) slaves you own. Don't get sad!! I didn't forget you!!

    Love and Kisses,

    Zeph

    weird yah know because I never said I agreed with what slim said but yet you lump me in with him....

    LIke I said before I dont care if there was a machine used in the shaping of my board as long as its what I want....

    I have bought custom boards in the past knowing full well that they were machine shaped then finished off by someone.....
