Craigg picked up this early 1990’s Skip Frye up at a garage sale recently. As you can see this board spent many fine hours down at the beach and cooked a severe sun bleached bottom. Craig brought this board into the shop to get some ding repair done. Jimmy Robertson of Lokbox fin system happens to have a ding repair shop so we sent it to him to get fixed up. Jimmy ended doing a nice semi-restoration by re-sanding, re-glossing and re-polishing it. Now it’s all sealed up and ready slide another 20 years.
*On a related note, there is a slightly surreal cover story about getting a Skip Frye surfboard in this week’s San Diego Reader: I Finally Got Skip Frye to Make Me a Surfboard
