I can understand why Andy can keep coming up with new stuff.

There’s nothing in the world like getting barreled.

Some longboarding can cure what ails you.

Perspective is an important thing to have in life. Without it, we wouldn’t be individuals.

New Skateboard Deck
September 10, 2009

Thought about making another surfboard. Ended up making a skateboard deck. This is the second time I’ve made a deck with fiberglass. The last time I made one was about four years ago. The skills and techniques I gained from building surfboards definitely sped up the process. I’m extremely happy with the result.
