    bort2a.PNG bort1.PNG bort1.PNG I gotta new bort -5'5.5 x 21.5 x 2.675
    dont ever believe a shaper when he says 4 weeks, it will be longer, by a lot and there will be excuses, obfuscations, and lies as summarized in my below haiku

    lied to and misled.
    four weeks becomes sixteen.
    are you kidding me?!

    That thing is sikk, there's so much going on with that tail I don't know where to start.

    Had a board shaped by Richard Gomez ("Mez") from Kauai a little over a year ago. Fkn solid guy and the shape is my new fave, but the time from conception until the time it was in my hands seemed like an eternity lol

    Originally gonna be shaped on da island, couple months later in Cali, all the glassers went out of business and Moonlight was backed up for months.

    Almost like getting a bort from Rich "Toby" Pavel lol

    Nice tail

    I like channels

    But that’s just a how it goes... you gotta wait. They make. Or you wait and buy CL once someone finally sells something you want.

    Btw are you new to the forume? Have you considered starting a ‘hello’ threade to properly introduce yourself?

    She’s a beaut, got any other pics? I feel you on the lies and delayed delivery, I went through that with my Fish as well. It wasn’t until I got tired of waiting and started calling and emailing that it magically got finished.

    Prolly got Starfish's maiden name on the bottom somewhere, maybe trying to keep a little anonymity which isn't a bad thing

    no, its gonna stay on the island, I am going to ask my fave SNJ shaper to make me one similar, but a 5'10 instead of a 5'5.5

    Channels apparently are a real hassle for shapers, sanders, and glassers
