Ryan made this board a month ago and we showed it in the Remember the Future
exhibit here on Saturday March 26th. He rode it for the first time yesterday, March 29th,
which happens to be Simmons' birthday, on the same lefts at Windansea where Simmons rode his planing hulls. Ryan put a little Simmons and a little Ekstrom in this one.
A deconstructed shortboard? Yeah...in some ways. But more a continuation of an older design school that is still evolving at the old venue.
Happy birthday Bob.

"And so it now appears to me that the tale I have to tell, spanning a million years, doesn't change all that much from beginning to end. In the beginning, as in the end, I find myself speaking of human beings, regardless of their brain size, as fisherfolk."
- Kurt Vonnegut, "Galapagos"
