My long-awaited board came today from Lynn Shell from OBBC.
Same board as last time with minor changes- a tad thinner in the front reflecting changes in my surfing skills in the ten years since he made the last board for me.
New fins snap right in! No allen wrenches needed, no messing around.
I wrote him and complained about the color. ITS ALL WRONG!
He asked why and I told him the new board is white. All my others are stained and yellowish. Nobody will recognize me!
I highly recommend this board artisan to everyone. Not only is he an artist, but my overall experience from beginning to end was satisfying and fun.
Here is the link to his website:
Hi, my name is
David Benjamin and I started swimming in Chappaqua, NY., swam for Badger swim team, Mercersburg Academy, NC State University, then Westport YMCA masters. I got bored of the ol' back and forth of competitive swimming and the high cost of skiing. Surfing took over and I never looked back.
