Just got done with the "Surf Station Bitchin' Bar-B-Que".. What a blast, Cullen and Langhorne had the sales rep sample sales, and I brought a fresh batch of sickies up there. Timmy burnt some burgers and hot dogs to a crispy mess, but it was fun. I love meeting new people at the shop and talking surfboards. We sold a bunch of boards and everybody is stoked on the new twinnies. I've put together 3 of my favorite fish templates to come up with the new one for spring. The resin dies are looking fresh, and Stewart finally broke out with some Beautiful resin pinlines and gloss/polishes. I tell ya, he's freaking good!! I'm so stoked to have him. Well, the shaper cam is up and running. I have to come up with a way to give you guys some kind of schedule since I really only shape 3 or 4 random days a week. But we'll get it ironed out and I think it's super cool. Oh, I got fully t-boned on wednesday!! This guy looked down at his cell phone and totally ran the stop sign and just plowed me. I'm bummed, the S10 is totalled!! I got a huge Chevy 4 door 1500 rental, and I think I'm ruined now. I have to go full-sized. Nicole absolutely loves this truck. It takes too much gas for me, but I'm getting pretty attached to it. I feel like such a pimp in this new huge truck. Well, I gotta go get a little play time out of this Saturday with the family, so I'll write more soon...
I just installed my new digi onto the computer, so here's a picture of me and the little big man fishing behind the hizzy. There's a few bass in there (I've caught two so far). He loves to fish, but only goes in when he's tossed!! Well, I finally went surfing yesterday. It was pretty good, but it was freezing (52 degree water!!). I decided that I'd go get some booties and get out there. It was thoroughly embarassing. I've spent way too much time making 'em and not enough time riding 'em. I'm so out of shape. I didn't think I'd survive the paddle, less than 20 minutes from a 6 inch meatball combo!!! The extra 15 (or so) pounds of built in wetsuit didn't help either..But I got a couple with my feet in the sweet spot, enough for me to realize that I gotta TIGHTEN UP!! I'm driving to Palm Beach on Monday to see if the warmer water is gonna help me. I realized that EVERY time I surf is on a new stick!! You're probably thinking: "that must be nice" but I never get my feet in 'em. I definitely like the diamond tail. You gotta get one. I've had at least one going through in every batch this year. They sold the one at the Station this week on the first day! (Hope that guy lets it cure..) O.K. gotta get back to work, look out for the shapercam, maybe next week?! Be safe for the superbowl, I'm outta here, it's too crazy for me. Skipped out on Paris's party last night at Aleworks to watch ER (how lame is that!!) I'm going to Ft. Myers as soon as Stewart get's done sanding this batch to go fishing with the boys and watch the big game at my Sister's. Go Steelers!!! Oh yeah, stupid Patriots!!!! Go Eagles!!!!!
