Last board from my beloved Porthleven...

Well this week marks the end of an era...I'm finally leaving the place I've lived in and loved for many years to start a new adventure in Australia. Porthleven has come to be a very special place full of amazing memories and the best friends a man could ever wish for. This board is my last from the village kindly financed by Tris at Homeblown. It's stretched me to my current limits and yes, it's for me...6'6"x21"x2 3/4". Its a stringerless PU superlight blank with carbon perimeter stringers, wrapped in 2 oz cerex  and single 4oz glass on the bottom and 2 oz cerex and 2x4oz on the deck with an extra 4oz stomp patch just for good measure, all vac bagged with epoxy. She's also sporting rail grooves to help control the flex pattern, exposed cork deck and Futures Controllers. I took it out this week to christen it and enjoy my last surf on our beloved reef. Amazing!
