How to get your cheesy chips home safe

Me and Mike from Mike West Surfboards love cheesy chips, maybe some garlic mayo with them or doner meet if there is more in the wallet than some pennies and a growing moth population.
Anyway, Mike asked me last summer to build him a drop through, nice and stable for some quick runs or to get home from the chippy in no time and loose any valuable heat from his food. This is what I made for him, sans graphics; as usual I was too lazy to take pics of the finished product. Might take some pics in a few weeks when I go and visit him for some boogie, surf, fiberglassing and of course cheesy chips!

Size is 39"x10"
WB 29" - 31.25"
0.5" of progressive concave.

Borneo Express

This pintail (42"x9") made it's way over the Atlantic towards Chicago where it met its new owner, Jeremy. From there it's off to Borneo, good luck to you two!

Top mount speed board

This is a deck I made for myself, it's 39" x10", WB adjustable from 29"-31 3/4". This model has a very mellow concave and is fabricated using three 4mm BB sheets which let it flex a bit. The summer should bring a second version with a killer concave and 1.5mm BB sheet construction that is a lot stronger and stiffer.

The swallowtail twins

Here are two sweet lil' rides! - Well, one is gone now.

28 1/4" x 8", WB 16", completely flat - old school baby! Choose from used 106/ new 129 (with orange/white, orange/orange khiros) Tracker Race Tracks slalom trucks for turny goodness or Fox II trucks for cheapness and black 78a 65mm Kryptos.
