These photos are of my buddy Bisse who I made the board for in the post just prior to this one. These photos are from 1982. Pre the birth of yours truly! Another layer in his onion of radness. check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Long Tip Keel. I shaped, painted and made the fins for this board. It was all done for a friend of mine by the name of Bisse. He's a wacky guy from Sweden with and extraordinary personality. I wanted to do something extra special for him so I gave it a little more then usual. I even made the call to do one black future fin box and one white one (the peg leg). I had a lot different feelings and emotions while shaping this board. I feel that this is one of the most honest boards I've ever done. By honest I mean I did exactly what I felt like doing. No holding back. From shape to brush stroke and it was all a surprise. Bisse didn't know what to expect and when he arrived in NY I just put it in his hands. I was relieved when the grin on his face stretched from ear to ear. It was an exciting day for the both of us.
