new green machine from Tom Neilson




D$ has my new stick at his house. It's not exactly the color I wanted but B. will be doing art work on it anyway.

Dimensions: 6'4" x 15.5 x 15.5 x 2.5 (approximately) It will provide enough float when I'm paddling in a 6x4 hooded suit with 7mm mitts and boots.

This board is fully handmade from EPS/Epoxy with a 6x6x6 oz. glass job. It should last a hella of a long time too. Hopefully I'll get to ride it while we're down in Florida for the holidays. Otherwise, I'll post some updates about it when I get back to the Maritimes and get it out on a good day on one of the points. By the time I get back the water should be close to freezing....scary.

On another note, my brother and I will be slaughtering Christmas on the 22nd -one his wild pigs named a few months ago in anticipation of the occasion. My brother can roast a pig like it was his calling. Looking forward to some bolas criollas (kinda like botche ball) with my Dad too and some good old Florida hell raisin. Hell yeah!
