Velzy: The 422
In 1966, the act of noseriding was the reason for the season. As a partnership, Hap Jacobs and Dale Velzy entered the fray with their own apparatus; the 422. This reverse-rocker tip time machine features a deep concave that extends almost ¾ the length of the board. Moreover, a unique rail bump and step-tail increases maneuverability in and out of steep sections. Albeit, the 422 would be considered unusual by the passerby, its influence is visible in many noseriders of the modern logging era. You’re cordially invited to cross-step on the wild side with the 422.
