Re: Neal Purchase Jnr Quartet

Yeah what Batoes said. If you drive off the front foot a lot it can be a bit weird to get used to but once you do, a cracking board.

Re: post your modern day sickness

Ok, so the final word on the NPJ - the man just called me himself and we had a good 15 minute chat. The board is 100% handshaped , the lines are from a fly screen gauze he uses to finish the rails off. Neal doesnt always fine sand the rails as he believes the slight grooves allow the resin to sink ...

Re: post your modern day sickness

As I said before, both boards are beautiful and like you say the R&D into both is massive. Including the hand foiled fins for the 2&1... I was mainly a bit weirded out at first as per my initial post about the lines running up the rails in the foam... Haven't seem those before and made me wonder wtf...

Re: post your modern day sickness

About 3 emails, 2 phone calls to whittle it down... Taken some similarities to one of his models but ultimately I felt he was going to make me something based in our discussion. Here is some interesting info on him from sunhouse surf shop http://sunhousesurf.com/post/90650966527/hand-shapes-by-neal-...

Nah, 2&1 - no probs with the board... Just those lines got my attention. Haven't seen them before.

Re: post your modern day sickness

feels like that... but will wait for Neal to get back to me before getting too carried away. Wouldnt want to make incorrect assumptions on his work, he has been a cool guy to deal with.

Re: post your modern day sickness

thing is though, its not a big manufacturer, its Neal Purchase Jnr - thought I was paying a premium for a handshape... and supporting proper board shaping in the process.
