Boarder Patrol

My flagging stoke was given a quick pick-me-up the other day when I got this email from Erik Hakon Olson: "I dropped your blank off at Moonlight glass today. Stoked!

"The shape came out great. Given your input of wanting something on the "high performance" end of the spectrum (I take "high performance" to mean able to go more vertical on the wave), I went for a shape that features a pulled in nose but kept a somewhat fuller rear end (although not as full as a classic fish shape). I've been hearing about a Pavel design called the creekfish. I havn't actually seen one but apparently it does a similiar type of thing and the few people that have given input on them swear by them. So I'm hoping this goes great for you!

"Unfortunately I never was able to get to Home Depot for the color chip you specified. If you have one on hand, I need you to pop that in the mail to Moonlight. They're expecting that we'll send one in to them."

So here she is in all her glory:

I did a quick search on the Pavel Creekfish and found this testimonial: "If you want the latest design evolution from Toby...request a Creek fish...He made me one and it is the best board I have ever had in 35+ years of surfing."

Here's a quick shot of the color chip. I'm going with the top color: Shoreline Green. Might have to call the board "Shrub" in honor of the color.

Ready for lift-off to the Moon Base.

Somehow I sense a theme amongst my toys.

Dude! That shrub is shweet! The outlines on our two boards basking at moonlight aren't that different. By my estimation, that puts yours four weeks behind mine. Wow, yours got caught up quick.

Dude the shrub! Careful or ol' Voltron will be jealous (although he was recently pacified by rt hand point waves). Stoked to see it at some point. Paychecks and bros new rides are giving me the itch to consider another new one.

Just noticed that the KG below is in the same color scheme as your bike. Are you gay? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Not gay...coordinated. Moonlight said they'd have mine in a couple of weeks. Not sure what the hold up is on yours.

How'd the board work at Misty's, Nashky? You didn't smash it into a rock like Slim, did ya?

Bee T Dubs, just joking Chummers. Haven't heard when it'll be done.

Chum, us Californians stick together and Oregon comes second. Just like how you treat us up there! Kiddin'.

Stokin' board. Good length.

Good. I just about blew an artery in my forehead. Need my board before spring conditions fade away!

G, worked great. I always heard you liked full rear ends by the way.
