Saw the post below while searching for my Dad's old boards that are out there.
Just an update. My Dad passed in Feb 2020. The OP in the archive link above asked the question about what was going on....long shot to give him an answer if he's still following. Yes, I am in Wilmington, still surf but do not shape.
Thanks to Swaylocks for maintaining the Archive. It was good to read about my Dad.
