Clark foam superlight.
Shaped by B. Kna.... ?
Rode it scared shitless at big Jalama. Kooky drops up in Montara. Classic Rincon towards the end of it's life. Central Coast surfin' and this board was perfect for it. Great sessions. Frightening sessions. Smooooth sessions. Dinged and repaired. Waterlogged and dried. Been thru it all. She died about 10 years back I'd say. Up in the attic to live out her land life. Five years back, I dug out the finbox to use on one of my first homemade singles. Probably the same time when she got graffitied with a wierd face. And then back up in the attic the board stayed.
Took her down recently. Thought about recyclin' the old soul. Maybe I could peel the glass off, reshape her, glass her, and give her another life? Another chance to get wet! Feel the ocean again!
Anyone know who might be the shaper? All I can read is B. K (looks like a "Kno.." or a "Kna..."). The "custom glassing" was done by Fibrecraft Glassing which I can't find anything about either.
