tiki's number 2!!

tiki sent me these via
Dear Mr. Black, Gday from Australia, and I say again a wonderful site.... Have just finished No. 2 pig for Clarke Mclintock , the first one which, was mine,was a pintail that was a reverse template off an original Velzy jacobs 1957 board. This one is a squaretail with a pointier nose which Clarke wanted and the only other longboard that he rides are 2 Glenn Ritchie SCOTT DILLONS from 1965 and 1966 with both of these being very heavy as they were both restored. He is generally a shortboarder and a big wave charger here but has a classic style with wonderful footwork mixed with powerful turns when riding longboards, he is only of a small physique and this board is 9' 8" x 23 1/4" x 3" , the fin is my own fully foiled and a 1" Powlonia stringer and red and white western red cedar noseblock and the rails ,as per Pig 60/40. She has been glassed with 3 layers of 6 ounce on the deck and 2 on the bottom with fin patch , it has weight but not dead there you go another PIG and I know there will be many more aloha to you all and SOIF TILL YA DROP                                                                                                                                                                       Cheers TIKI
