This month is my one year anniversary. One year since I came back to surfing after a 23-year hiatus. One year since I began my first ever home-made surfboard. One year since I discovered the internet as a source for boardbuilding info. (OK, my profile says I'm about 6 weeks short of one year on Swaylocks, but I found the wood board builders forum first, and Swaylocks shortly after).
In my past year, I've built 5 surfboards, repaired one that was broken in half (thanks lockedin for donating that one to my research), met and paddled out with several Swaylocks bro's, and kinda sorta got my sea-legs back, which is an accomplishment at age 55 and living in Bakersfield the armpit of the state LOL!
To commemorate my first year, I'm gonna inaugurate my first annual board swap - if anyone is interested. Give me some idea of the shape you want, and I'll build you a Huck Board (wood will feature largely, of course), in exchange for a custom board you build for me. I'm not too particular, I can tell you whatever you need to know about my surfing, and you decide what you think'll be best for me.
If anyone is interested, pm me, and we can discuss it. If it works out, I will begin your new Huck original. These things take some time, so who knows when it'll be paddle-ready. But I'm up for the challenge, if anyone else is! Oh yeah, and I do want some surfing pics of the board in action!
