O Wrong Hole on the yellow and black twinnie:
“Gnech shaped that sucker! It’s a 5 foot one inch slab of death. It was sitting on his shaping bay floor for ages like 2 years ago and one day I managed to force him into putting fins in it. It goes like shit, I love it. 5 foot 1 inch… you know small, fun, stupid like me, except I’m not small.
Have you seen the price of fins lately? They cost a fortune, so two is cheaper than three, right?
Ageing pros like Derek Hynd can’t even afford fins anymore, so he’s ripping without fins, like, less is more
. But I’m not really a minimalist – apart from minimal working for the man.
I like black boards and brown boards, I like boards people look at and go ‘What a piece of shit,’ they’re the ones I try and steal.
A black deck is easy to change your wax in summer, perfect. Plus it doesn’t reflect sun like a white board so I don’t get burned under my chin bitchassssssss…”
