Another Bolt. This one was made under licemse by MTB in Florida in the very late 70's, early 80 I guess. Even though it s been shaped by Donald Takayama, we can t compare it to a pure Hawaiian Bolt but the color, Bolt pinline and the shape makes it very special to me.

It had some dings. They are being repaired and I should be able to surf it soon.

Jackson Surfboards, a Sydney iconic manufacturer of some great boards is on the market after 41 years. So I managed to pick up a score 7'10" mini mal for the classic 3' waves found around our Northern Beaches in Sydney.

Just magic, nearly 16 yrs old, been ridden 3x not a scratch on it. Took it out today, sheer delight in small, rolling waves.

Jackson will be sorely missed, I hope somebody buys it!

My new baby. 9'4" Takayama. The Pintail pig retro classic longboard.! Have been told it was Tudor's board when he was in France competing in the Biarritz surf festival 15 years ago or so
I just love the pig shape, wide hips, pointed nose. Cant wait (tomorow) to try it. Shaped by master Donald rip Takayama.

Sheer magic Fred. I was looking at a Takyama Scorpion a few months back, the 7' version of that. Has to be one of the best boards to ride ever. In fact, if you come out here right now, we have perfect longboard riding conditions at the moment. I have never seen it so good for a while, 1-2' waves just rolling in.

Good times.

Thats true Dan !
Just had a nice session at home. Very different feeling from a traditional "non pig" longboard. More glide and cool attitude to surf it well. Can t wait to try again. But first gotta go work ;-)

Nice board, Fred!   But why does your Alva Bi-logo in the background have the front Lazer truck mounted backwards? [crazy]
