And to think..........my wife pitched a fit this afternoon when I told her that I had a couple decks coming this week. I reminded her that if she was EMPLOYED, she wouldn't be here when the mail lady brings them and it wouldn't be a problem!

Gabe, please share a little information.....PLEASE!!!

Pat , here is the 411 on these grails from left to right:  1) Original 1978 MINT Dogtown Bigfoot .    2) Original 1986 Santa Monica Airlines (SMA) # 1 of 100 "Indian Feathers" Deck . They came in white ,off white and a cream/yellowish color . Artist is Chris Buchinski and these are practically extinct ! Deck has scratches / storage marks and a crack near the nose . I was told the graphics on the deck say something to the affect of (in Hopi Indian Language) "Love and peace not hate and war" .  3) 1987 MINT Zephyr deck in orange and black graphic colors . Jeff Ho told me that only 6 of these were made and I have 2 of them .   4) Santa Monica Airlines (SMA) "Street Heat" Deck from 1983 . Has Scratches and storage marks . KILLER graphic by Scott Anderson of a skeleton piloting a W.W.1 airplane with highly detailed machine guns !   5) Candy apple Red dipped 1985 Dogtown "Stonefish" Deck .   6) 1987 Mint Zephyr deck with red and white graphics .

This one is a rare-ass board. I haven't seen another since 70's. Unique to Western Canada unless someone took one somewhere abroad. Wee Willi sexy wells.

Yeah, but they are nice and clean, with sharp edges! Probably park ridden only! Probably some great history and memories!

 How about this for a freak of skating?  Check the board on the left.  This was a board run of about 200.  They were called Heavysticks.  I met the guy that built these in Vail Colorado.  He was building these in the mid '70's so that he and his Bro's could run the Vail Pass!  He has stories of passing semi trucks coming down the pass.  And they did it standing up.
The board is 4 1/2 inches wide, and 28 inches long.  He would cut insets where the trucks would go so that he could add lead weights.  He also added front and rear bumbers, so the would not splinter if you wiped out, and to save ankles from a loose board.  They would run Trackers, and usually Kryptos.  Here I have Trackers and Gyros, as well as a set of the original weights.
He is a ski repair guy.  It was the same for them up in the mountains as it was for the surfers on the beach.  When there was snow, they would ski.  No snow, they would skate.  I think being a ski guy, is why the board is shaped as it is.  He designed them, and still plays around with them from time to time.  I also have one of his proto types, which he used ski glass to form wings for a wider standing area.  Way cool.
