Bill Caster and my Dad were really tight back in the day and both of them heavily influenced me, not only surfing but in life. My Dad is one of the judges for the “shape-off” this weekend at Sacred Craft honoring Bill. It won’t be easy replicating those crisp Caster foils.
Bill Caster was well known for his incredible surfboards but he made skateboards too. He made me this skateboard when I was Jr. High school. Caster used a layer of fiberglass and resin on his skateboards. The “Caster Blaster” was my transportation all over town. I never learned to skate ramps or anything like that. I always skated with a surfboard under my arm, headed to Swami’s or one of the local taco shops.
