Trippin’ forward into the past. The renaissance of the riding everything maxim just keeps getting better. The forms and fantasies, along with the historic styles – think Bertlemann and Buttons – in stark contrast to today’s more austere forms and utility of the high-pro shortboard – lend to a creativity sorely needed in today’s prosaic view.
Like an old friend found again, this six-foot, two-inch, single-fin breeds familiarity and joy. Inspired by a treasured, time-worn, sunburned and broken, ‘70s rider, it lives up to the creativity and impact of the time, along with a few modern twists; a melody-blending of eras. Like the original it’s a volume packed board, featuring a beak-nose and soft entry rocker for paddle ease and early wave entry, along with a flat, Brewer-like deck and full rail. The bottom, from nose to midway is flat, flowing into a double concave and spiral-vee off the tail. A groovy reenactment of a special board and a special time.
