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.
Swami's footage from last night. I'm not exactly sure what emotion this video conjures the most; angst, awe, amp, disbelief, sheer hatred, or longingness? I mean this is just ridiculous, I think there's one wave where someone doesn't get completey Gene Hackmaned and the one's where people get burned the freaking culprits just proceed to shred as if it's there last ringer clip for the new Taylor Steele movie, complete disrespect and disregard for others. I wonder how many days in a row of pumping swami's it would take for these mongrels to share waves and for the crowd to thin to an adequate oxygen level. THREE YEARS STRAIGHT! Maybe. I have surfed out there so many times and been blatantly stuffed by the same four guys every time. The crusty bush lurkers who hang day in and day out on the rocks and in the bushes......Long Hair Larry, Ginger Troll Dave, Crab Stance Steve and Bronze Tan Terry all of whom ride boards with the GH lam on them, I don't think Gary would be very stoked on their antics, I know he wouldn't. Turd on those chumps. I bet over half of these dudes in this video got coal in there stocking's for their burns for turns jocko approach. But damn, I sure would love to get me one of those reelers!!! -Bloggins-
