I swear I'm going to die if I don't somehow, some way make this board mine.

OK, so, I'm not well versed in all things longboarding, but...

This looks like a...um...longboard. Something of which you already have a couple of. What's special about this one?

Remember in the 90's when people used to say, "It's a black thing. You wouldn't understand"? Well, it's a longboard thing that I don't completely understand. I know I'm being told to keep the Tyler. However, I see this as a replacement for that board. I'm torn though. Still, you have to see this board up close, see the rails, see the nose. It's beautifully shaped. That's something that doesn't translate in photos.

When are we taking out our new boards?

I have a feeling our new boards can't occupy the same break at the same time without one of us experiencing a frustrating session. You and I need to hit up Porto (or even your home break) with your 7'1 in tow.

Suh-weet.

The only thing I don't like its the giant circle laminate on the deck. It's just a personal preference aesthetic thing I have. Giant symmetrical shapes in the middle of a board (or a Christmas sweater, as another example) tend to make me think "target." I'd rather not be going around riding (or wearing) something that makes someone think "target."

Again, this is just a personal preference aesthetic thing I have. This does not detract from the lovely shape and glass on that board.

I am also interested in that rockered out board on the floor in the background of the top picture. I might have to visit this shop.

I'm with Grace, not wild about the big dot, but otherwise very sweet. Saw some similar boards at the Grotto a while back. I have a Jacobs - can't go wrong with Hap but I believe they are now shaped by the guy who does the Bings?

Yep, Matt Calvani shapes the Bings (Haps too). Take a look at the Gold Standard... talk about sweet, bada Bing!
