.....A few years ago ChrisP gave Stingray a very cool 80's quad...the board needed some work.....


This year ChrisP gave Stingray a very cool 70's twin...the board needs some work....this thread is all about Swaylock's Stoke...Sharing the Stoke! We're going to fix up this board and loan it out .....go ride it....the 80's quad is up in San Fran right now.....it's all about riding boards..sharing rides...getting stoked!!!!!!

Hi Ray , the second photo ...


 


....got me thinking [ which can be DANGEROUS ! :) ]


 zray.jpg


A combination of the two boards ?


[ by the way ...are they channels , where the yellow spray is , on the quad ? ]


 


  a "winged swallow quad " ,


 


 .... with a back F.U.   fin box , for the single fin option , too...


 


  that would be an updated version of the Crozier kneelo that I had , back in ? 1976/77 ?  [which I stood up on , don't worry ...]


 


these are only my thoughts , for a board for me in the future , perhaps ?


 


 Something like that could be a fun summer small wave board , if I made it the 'right' dimensions for me


 


back to you , though ...


 


I reckon this board will be great , and come up a treat , looking at how good the quad looks [do you have 'before' shots of the quad , by any chance ?  ]


 


  cheers !
