so today i was up in Boston Metrowest area for a craigslist transaction, & decided to stop by Dave's place in Ayer for a chat. after my business in Westford was completed, drove 15 minutes over to his place & was greeted by him, his wife plus their chill dog in front of 3 open garage bays w/many foam fiberglass treasures inside. we rapped for a good hour or so on various subjects including boards, good (& bad) vintage restorations & whatnot. 'twas a singularly pleasant highlight breaking up an otherwise mundane multi-hour trip off Cape to buy tools of the trade. i even had my Mac in the car, so was able to show him the full surfboard ownership portfolio gallery. dude has some nice stuff - heavy on the G&S strain f/'67-8 including several Skips, even more Midget Farrellys & those HotCurls. of course, must also mention the myriad Finelines along w/other random gems including a beautiful blood red Lance/Gene collab v-bottom & that gorgeous blue sled f/Matt G. totally stoked to meet Dave & shoot the breeze for a bit - cool person w/many legit sticks. thanks for taking the time, sir!
