Albe'S Board

hi simon,

here are a few fotos of the little fish you sent me down a while back.....i think it arrived by road warrior around january this year.....i remember because it was full tilt school holidays. the board sat in the surf shop for a few days before i got my hands on it.....apparently the owner wasn't in too much of a hurry to let it fly......after seeing it i can understand why......i felt like i needed gloves on just to pick it up.....it was so buffed out and the artwork by shane martin on the bottom was insane.......anyhow i didn't ride the little beast for about a month......waited for the holidays to pass. rasta dropped by on his way south and checked it over and couldn't believe that i hadn't ridden it........he had a couple of fishes in the car......anyhow the day arrived.....as they all do.....wasn't a perfect surf but hey tell me a surf that isn't perfect.....i was amazed how easy it paddled......that was the first reaction and then when i jagged a small one with a bit of a wall it just rocketed down the line......i couldn't believe how loose it felt....anyhow i've pretty much brought that little one to the front of the que.......certainly i ride it a lot......i've been an outer island freak for a few lifetimes - mitchel just has the gift......anyhow the little fish is definitely part of the quiver. it's the only non outer island board i own.....thanks ever for the fun.......and the beautiful work......it's too good.

love, albe
