There are not many words needed to describe him; we all know one of our dearest friends, Ted. In this project, he tried (or he was forced to ride???) one of my logs (no, not officially mine but technically mine!), Skip Frye 9'6" fish tail single-fin glider.
He is the one who calls any log under 10ft. as a fun board or transition board... for him, the longer and more volume the better, and the flotation is critical! He rides very long and heavy boards which I cannot even carry around :) OK, let's destroy his stereotypical belief that longer and heavier boards are better for HIM or he needs that big boards. As I imagined, he complained about the length and the volume of the Frye when I handed it to him... but at least he tried something new!!! Now let's see how he rides it!
Mmmmm, he turns like Frye and glides like a pelican! WTF, he rides it so well and came back in with a big smile!!! Yes, Ted, you did it so well! I envy you!
Well, is it a type of board that you want to add to your surfboard museum??? I know it is almost impossible to buy it. Let's make one for us!
BTW, here is a video clip, Frye surfing in 1969.
