The Undecider

Numbers scare the hell out of me. Want an example? 300. Terrifying number.
This is why I have a deep respect for Northcoast shredder and beard-growing enthusiast Chris, who chooses to remove numbers from his life entirely.
Chris wanted a board, but didn’t concern himself with the details. Our conversation went like this:
Me: What are you looking for?
Chris: Shaper’s choice.
Me: Glassing?
Chris: Have at it.
Me: (scrunching eyes with what-you-talkin’-‘bout-Willis-like suspicion) When do you need it?
Chris: Whenever.
With respect to Chris, I went for a shortish, wideish, thinnish little number that would like nothing more than a wave about yay-high--preferably with water temps hovering around just right.

Leslie's glassing is good.

Wow...not a fish fan but that is a very pleasing outline.
Love the color combo and Leslie's work is Da Bomb!
Don't you wish all board orders were this simple?

Thanks, Rh. Yup, I like the easy orders--they're almost as fun as the pesky ones.

Thanks for the props, 6ft. 5/32 cedar stringered, fins are my own (based off a Geppy template with more curve added to rear).
