Andreini Semigun

Marc made this custom old school semigun.

I think it was around 8'0''

Marco Geovani Andreini

The customer loved the saying on Woody Guthries guitar.

This glassjob matched our  hair color.

Really came out nice , reminds me of an old John Bradbury Creative freedom. Merry Christmas from the Roundup everybody!

My New Ride

9'0'' Special K 

Marc and I have been talkin about this board ever since we saw the Innermost Limits of Pure Fun many years ago.

It is designed like the 2 boards Ted Spencer and Chris Brock take camping out by some air force base. I think the original boards were around 8'' to 8'4''and may have been shaped by Bob McTavish under the Nature surfboard label, not sure on that.

Marc shaped me a 8'2'' around 1974 that was based off this , great board. And later the first Vaquero we did was kinda based off these boards .

Marc really worked on getting the curves right on the outline, not easy with a squaretail.

Marc has an copy of this one and has been riding it up north for a couple of weeks in everthing and says it's a keeper.

Stringerless Ice 9 blank , n.17'' w. 23'' t. 14'' th 3''1/2 , can't wait to get this wet .
