    In ’09 I was a maintenance man at a trailer park and one day as I was flying around in my golf cart something caught my eye. There under a car port on a picnic table was a full color 1980’s Ripcurl thruster. I imagined that the board was sitting there for a long time not getting any love and for a second I had the urge to knock on the door and offer the owner $50 bucks for the board. I drove off instead and soon after quit working for peanuts at the trailer park (snaking the fat guys toilet pipe was the last straw). Now every once in a while I think about that board and give myself a little kick in the ass. There is something special about those early Moonlight/ Ripcurl surfboards and I always keep my eye out for one.
