    My parents decided to give me a new board of my choosing for my birthday. They said to pick any one I wanted, don’t worry about cost. My choice was an easy one...my dad’s custom 9'6 Hansen he got in 1963 and still had hanging in his garage. He was thrilled to give it to me. I surfed on this board well before I finally got my own board that was short and looked liked what all my friends were riding in the 1988. Polished it today and threw on a new coat of wax. I know the Superlites, Powerflexes and Masters are considered to be Hansen’s best boards, but this one just stops me in my tracks. Clocks in at 24lbs, 2" balsa stringer with surprising refined rails for 63’. The fin is a work of art.[​IMG]

    You have an opportunity to test your father's sense of humor by telling him you traded it for two Wavestorms.

    Hope to get it over to OC at least once before the summer crowds overtake the north end. It’s not been in the water for at least 25 years.
