...I made this board for a customer that wanted a board for a short Nicaragua trip. A long trip from here I must say. This board is the max that I consider of what a HP shortboard should be (regarding function and aesthetics). The board is very light due to the premium density foam only found in Surfblanks Brazil and 4oz lamination; (still is going strong) It has gloss on the deck and on the bottom logotype; bottom has speed finish, so no gloss there = less weight. -I made all the steps in all the boards for nearly 30 years now included silk screening, fins, color work, sanding, etc...and to be a secretary...
