He said it was a little "beefy".....

Just got this one from my friend Chris C. Taken a few weeks ago in late April, SW Nicaragua.  Side note: Chris is 6'4"....

They're a little older and weathered but they still have so much to offer.
Hope you weren't thinking I meant the other kinds of "Cougars"....  :)

Crispy Critters.....

Roach picked up a little package early this morning at PHL. There was 20' of glide stuffed inside all that cardboard and duct tape. 10' for him and 10' for me. :)
Many Mahalos Grant and Roach!

Sunday Morning Sliders....

Finally found a few fun little waves wrapping in along Beach Ave. These howling ENE winds have not been our friend this past week.

"Extra Crispy" is heading my way......

Since the demise of my YYZ in less than 3 yrs, I have no further interest in adding modern longboards to my quiver. Figure I'll stick with boards that have already withstood the test of time and are still slideworthy. This one will be leaving Long Beach, CA and heading cross country to Lower Cape May County, NJ in the next week or so. My friend bubbed this one "extra crispy" when he got it and that moniker will stay with it under my ownership. Eager to get it wet a lot this summer.
