Board Preview: Stamps Arrow II - Coming to a Race near you!
I asked Stamps to tell me how this board is different from the original Arrow. I was assuming the response would be something like describing a new hairdo: "Took a little bit off the top, pulled it in here, thinned it out there- voila, a new you!"
Wrong. The legitimate "design" guys will take you deep. I won't go into it here- some of it might be better kept under wraps (and you don't ever want to piss off the guy who makes your boards). Truthfully, I didn't understand most of the discussion.
How sweet does this thing look though? If you want to get a look at this one I'm certain it'll be at the Hobie/Hennessey's Waterman Challenge at Doheny May 31st. Go check it out.
And... If you got the urge to burn some fuel get your a## up to Jim Brewer's shindig in SB this weekend. He'll be featuring Gerry Lopez's new stand ups. Best part: Leds may even have something surfable. This North may just have enough angle to sneak in there. Go get it!
