Based off one of those as a general guide. Some tweaks in terms of dims, volume and rocker.

Want a crowd controller on days that are a bit solid, I'm not getting any fitter and hate watching waves go by that i couldn't get into or couldn't outpace the crowd.

I like the board but want it to be a rounded pin.

I had that under my arm just yesterday channels. Its about time you picked it up, I'm pretty sure I saw it around before I went to Bali (maybe unglassed, can't remember) and that was 3 weeks ago.

Nice board!

Had plenty of boards from him iver the years in various shapes and sizes.

Have been friends with him for 20+ years, great craftsman, great family. Would rather spend my money with him than a shaper with a mass produced model, could have got one over here but trust Ross enough to let him go for it.

You could have got one of those fish to match the curtains...or the rug.
Nice looking board.

I liked the shape, Ross and I were discussing a custom for me, yours was the best shape, just needed to put some more volume in it for me!

I find it almost impossible to tell how good a board is from a photo. The distortion is always so deceiving. Like Channels board looks great in the first shot of the deck but looks weirdly elongated and stretched out in the underside shot that shows the channels.

Don't think i could ever buy a board based on photos of it.
