Steve Krajewski on the ORIGINAL! Death board that was later ridin to death by Jimmy Gamboa. The reason it's called the Deathboard is because Steve tried to shoot the pier on a major swell and almost made it , but ran into the pier.

7'1'' DB pulled out to this length it starts to look like Steve's Jaws board.

6'10'' DB these 2 are full DIRT MACHINES low nose rocker med. thin rails.

Top side.

Foil. These are for sale by myself or Mollusk by request? kirkripper@yahoo.com

7'2'' Death board for sale.

And a custom for old Liddle head Mark B. this one is Greg's old template

DB is a bit straighter in the tail and is 22.50 wide

Greg's has a bit more curve and a smaller roundtail also 23'' wide

Almost the same dims just different curves , these are the small things that you learn what's right for YOU after you have had a few Hulls. In the old footage you can see the DB of Krajewskis can be laid over abit harder on the turns and with a bit more drive and Greg's seems to go rail to rail a bit more easy, personal to each guy and how they wanted their boards to FEEL and surf.

Brian and I have been doing these about from 8'0'' to 8'6'' but I wanted a 9'0'' so we did this for myself . Brian , Flo who has a 8'4'' and myself were in the room and thru our ideas around , we were all on the same page.

Outline. Old and new ideas blended together 2 parts Ted Spencer, 1 part Nat Young, 1 part Greenough , shake and bake for 2 hrs .

Not really foiled like a longboard, S- deck we have had good feedback from our guys who got these.

Volan glass, 3/4 deck patch, 2'' lap

Can't wait to try this one.

Capt. Chamberlain's old/ new Radon, Jeff found this old beat up Radon boat up north and had a vision of this , I got to admit it was real hard to see , it was super ugly and beat to death.

Anderson boats in SB took the challenge and stripped it down to the bare hull and rebuilt this , really came out nice , not to big not to small . He never lets me drive , probably the only time at the wheel for me!

Jeff is gonna have a ton of fun on this new toy with twin 60 hp Yamaha's .

Designing a smaller boat , 18ft is a real challenge, Jeff's been a boat freek his whole life and this is a longtime dream come true, every detail has been thought out. Cool project, neat to watch from start to finish.

Was up at Shaver Lake at my father in law's place, came back from fishing and this was at the ramp launch. A 1940? all wood racer with a 12 cylinder Jaguar powerplant.

This thing was loved, the owner was a WW2 vet P-51 pilot and air racer, he had taken Capt.Jack my father in law out on a ride the day before, it go's about 60 mph!


Truly a work of ART!
