Looking at the G&S Waterskate on the For Sale page. I'm sure that's the original prototype shaped by Tom Morey. As the rep I was getting ready to make the initial sales trip back east. We had a lot of prototypes but hadn't settled on a model to base our main promotion yet. Tom Morey had taken a break from perfecting the Boogie Board to come in and do some designing. He stopped by my Mission Beach pad one Sunday afternoon and asked if I had a key to the factory. I did, so over we went. There was a 12' lifeguard blank over in the corner and that's what he used to shape the first Waterskate. We put the shaped blank out on a scale in the front parking lot of the factory. Tom put a vinyl sticker on each rail. I shot the photo using my Pentax with a telephoto lens for a short depth of field to blur the background. That's the photo that's in the ad. I left on my sales trip with nothing but a photo. They sent me another prototype on the road. Of course the production boards were less radical. And the prototype they sent me didn't look like the board in the ad. After all we couldn't use a lifeguard blank for each board and we were blowing our own "Pacific Foam" at the time and weren't ready to make a new mold just for the Waterskate. Seeing the photo of the board after all these years sure brought back some memories.
