Utah, gimme two-
Custom 5'9 P-38 for Jonny Utah from Brian Hilbers/Fineline Surfboards.
Turns out that Bj and I are both nerds of the military aircraft kind.
(thems Bj fins too-super thin tippy flexy-see through thin!)
So with this fun-packed wave weapon being named after a fighter/
attack/support aircraft from the WWII era, we thought it would be
fun to try and make it look like the real thing.
Really cool to make this happen with Mr. Hilbers. Word is the glass
shop had a good time and were proud of this one. Muchos Gracias's
to Beej for the mind-bending shape and stoke of the P-38, and to
Waterman's Guild Board Beautifying Surfboard Factory for the
completely awesome lamination, color, and polish.
I've been on the demo P-38 for five months-usually ride a different
board almost every day-CAN NOT get off this thing.('til some 6'-10'
told me ta beat it yesterday) I knew the demo would someday leave,
so I got my own. But how do I put wax on such a beautiful board?
Swami's thursday morning. No one out!
Or everyone cleaned up? You decide.
