I just bought this cool old 7’7″ Fresh Pineapple surfboard from my wife’s cousin. It was good timing considering we just got a “fresh” batch of Shrosburgers in stock. My intent was too fix some of the small dings and resell it, but now it looks like JM might want to learn on it.
Looky at what we gots down at Surfy Surfy. It’s the 1980’s Tom Curren model, the Red Beauty from Channel Islands. This is a replica of what Curren rode back in the day. Remember how Curren used to stoke you out? Yeah, us too!

Wait, what is that on my wrist?
Why, it’s one of those groovy “friendship bracelets”.
They are back baby. Pick one up at Surfy Surfy Surf Shop in friendly Leucadia. Only $3 bucks each!

The crafty Campbell Brothers went underground for most of the 1980s but they were doing some cutting edge stuff.
