welcome and great first post.
i rode that exact board for a few weeks between the zflex and the alva 10" and toft 10" when they came out.

i always loved that deck,
easily seduced by the wood craft and the water ski connection.
i grew up water skiing alot.......
then woodies as a carpenter [& architect] later

yes i did the tape the same too.
send it to me that one got away....
i'll trasde some cool stuff for that....keith

oops top of the rug bitches.........jahahahaha

I am looking for a better set of RR4s for it!Comments are welcome.

The topside just as Gregg Weaver did it.


The bottomside:


Sticker close-up.

Oh yes, this is post number 1, although I have lurked for 3+ years.

tony, those foam/glass hitchcock boards aren't protos they were hand-made by skitch but were advertised alongside regular hobie models at the time. quite a few came to the uk.

 I had no clue that Skitch even made trucks and wheels...
 I like the "Chassis By Maharajah" concept.

  That would be like sub- sub- contracting??

Great article.  It's sad to read how bad choices in his life have left him with liver failure.  Innovative guy for sure!

Hey Steve,

Thanks for the wheels, they are a sweet set-awesome.

Cheers for the info on the board, stoked that a few of them made it to the UK, perhaps Shiner has some in his loft. Chris told me that this one was a proto that Mike Weed gave to him pre-production.

Here is a pic of the Hitchcock trucks.



Cheers,

Tony

Jamieson and Hitchcock did a demo in an indoor mall here in 76-77.  Both rode those foam and glass beauties.  Had a 7' quarterpipe and did some freestyle.  I was a stoked grom.
