Not sure if one of these has already been started, but here we go, here's some sweet Kanoa Surf gear:

Tri Beam with Kanoa Rollouts:





Kanoa 9" Pig with extrack mags and single conical gyros (just how Lonnie Hiramoto rode had it set up).





Kanoa Koper:

That's Sweet!

I really wish I still had my Darrell Miller board, been trying to score anything Kanoa for years and still nothing.

Got lucky & scored this today. A Howard Hood Kanoa Pig. This is after I cleaned it up a little:

And this is how it came to me. With Thunder trucks (I think - someone please verify: one has a battle axe on it, the other, a sword?). And Sure-Grip roller skate wheels. Oh well, it's the deck that counts. Never even seen one of these except in old skate mags:

Now I really wish I had some Rollouts to go with it...

That board is beautiful, what does the top look like.

Early Thunders had the swords, axes, etc.. on the baseplates.

It was the same situation for me when I got my Pig and Tri-beam, I had never seen one in the flesh either.

Well done,

Tony

Thanks for the info, guys. I really appreciate it.

And thanks for the kudos, Tony. When I saw yours on Art of Skateboarding, I was pretty stoked that I was getting one similar. I had no idea at first what to offer the kid who had it (I turned it up via an ad I placed on craigslist). He had no idea what he had - but I like to offer people a decent price for stuff.

I'll try and post pix of the top later - but I can tell you it's pretty decent. There's a piece of that gnarly clear grip in the middle (so you can see the "pig" logo) and the front and back pieces are that same texture tape but in black.

Awesome Resto project, mwwstone!  Maybe TonyHallam can send you a nice clear shot of the graphics.  I came close to getting one once but was too slow, sh#t!

Thanks PR - sent Tone and email already - he has the only other 'intact' one that I know about. Got any pics of the one that got away from you?
Anyone else got any pics of other ones?
