Say hello to the newest addition to the Grey Ghost fam. I call him Woodstock and he is 4'6". My brother bought the foam to make this board, for $2 at the rockaway swap meat. In its previous life it was a boring old 7'10 China "Funboard" with a thruster setup. It was snapped about 2' down from the nose so I didn't have much to work with. I worked out a template on some graph paper a while back and I figure this was an opportune time to give it a shot. Oddly enough I figured a way to cut the china thruster egg funboard down so that I had a perfect blank for this little guy. With minimal adjustment the rocker was exactly where I wanted it and all I had to do was put rail bands on it and turn them. I did this all by hand. No power tools. I'm going to foil my own fins for it and even glass it myself for old times sake. Stay tuned for the progress. Peace
I've been anxiously waiting for this board to be sea worthy ever since it took shape back in march. It finally arrived about two weeks ago and I got to ride it for literally 3 days. The 3rd day is when tragedy struck. It came in the form of a nervous barney that was sitting on his board on the inside. While I was surfing by, barney got nervous and thought that I was going to crash into him. In a panic he decided to dismount his board and push it in front of me. It was too close I couldn't do anything but jump off my board and hope for the best. When I got back to the beach I found my board laying in the sand with one of the leading fins dangling off. Luckily the fin wasn't damaged and neither was the board. I punched the fin off and paddled back out to try to cheer myself up and salvage my session. The rest of the session was pretty good and I let the board sit for a week until I started production. The fin is back on now and getting a fresh hot coat tomorrow. Your never safe. Beware of the ghost in the shorey. Unnecessary beef is more cows to feed. Peace.
YO YO. I'm still around. Sorry for the absence. This is off my typical topic but due to my back ground in graffiti and street bombin I want to share this video with yall'. Infamy is a flick about Graffiti in the present day America. You can see pretty much the whole thing on Youtube in different parts. Check it. Its pretty interesting.
