Howzit going?
I recently acquired this gorgeous Jacobs 422. Rides absolutely insane, 100% the best log I own. It weighs about 25-30lbs. It is without a doubt a remake I am just curious if anyone has any info on who shaped it? I understand that Matt Calvani has the rights on them, but I also thought that he signs majority of the boards he makes e.g. I rode a remake of a Rick noserider he shaped and his name was difficult to miss! There are no identifying markers (serial number/signature). Curious if anyone has experience with these.

I originally posted this in the buy/sell/trade thread and was told to try over here! Thanks in advance for any information.

Cheers,
Mike

Curious what makes you say it's a remake. Hap only recently laid down the planer.
Great point, it could be done by hap, but I had heard he usually signs them and on the ones he made his name is included on the Jacobs lam. But there are no names or serial number on this.

trivia fact; 422 was the address of Hap's shop in Hermosa Beach for most the whole '60s.
422 Pacific Coast Hwy., Hermosa Beach (before zip codes)

My guess...either Matt Calvani or Jose Barahona. What size ? I have two 422s, both rounded pins 9'8 & 9'2, both great rides! NJRider...any insight?
It’s a 9’8” I absolutely love it, I have ridden quite a few good noseriders both new and vintage and this one is my favorite by far!

Trivia fact; 422 was a model that Dale shaped for Hap to repay a debt.

What I can barely see in the photos leads me to believe that has all the markings of a Calvani Bing. When Hap got the label back from Wayne he did the progressive 2+1 versions while Matt took them back to a more modern version of the original ‘60’s single fin.

It's a Calvani, I was the original owner. Jamie K and I both ordered 422s at the same time, maybe 10-12 years ago? I sold it to a kid who did ding repair with Jamie, who sold it to Mike from Surf Cafe.

The dot was originally yellow, the kid who bought it didn't like the color and changed it. Fun board, one of those I wish I never sold.

It's the step sister to Dale's Banjo model.
