Big Boy Test at Trestles

I didn’t wake up when Mitch called me at 5am yesterday but we managed to go today to Trestles. I actually finished making the board on the parking lot. I wasn’t happy the leash plug hole so I redrilled a hole, got it filled with resin, let it cure on the ride down and drilled the final leash hole on the lot. Since I have short arms, carrying the 23 inch wide board to Trestles was a mission. The thing catches waves so easily and it just glides. So stoked. David took all these pictures. What a legend.


Sickk bra.
