Scrub it kook
"We ain't on our way to Wembley,we ain't gonna win the league. No matter how much they let us down - Westham's still our team"...
that stringer is insane.. love your red dot logo on it too
The red dot decal was created, and put into service, in 1962. The decals used on this board were cut out in 1964, and put into storage. I pulled out two of them to put on this board. I'll be using more of them, if people like them. They're a blast to my past.
SHAPER SINCE 1958
Tour de force indeed.
Enjoy your posts Bill.
Modern surf history is young and you were close to it's beginning.
When are you going to write a book?
Thank you for asking about it, but I have no plans for a book. I have been asked about doing it, many times. Hard to know where to start. It HAS been an interesting journey, I'll give it that.
Bill, what fin did you end up going with? Box, or glass on? Beautiful board!!
The fin is my own design, crafted for me by Mr. Dave Town, mounted in a 10.5 inch FU box. Thick foiled, of course.
I'd love to check out the board. Please let me know how long it will be on display at Bird's. If I were younger, I'd love to surf it at Sunset, but those days are nothing but memories. Five back surgeries later, and being fused from L3-S1, I'm happy just to still be surfing.
I'll probably leave the board there until the end of next week. (Thursday or Friday) At a minimum. I hope you do have a chance to see it in person. If you have surfed Sunset, at size, this board will speak to you. The 10' 3'' board in my avatar is made with the same template, and I could ''hotdog'' that board, top to bottom in 20 foot Makaha point surf.
