    Wow PS! I didn't realize going back in the "time mind machine" would dredge up some many fond memories of original FW's. Totally forgot about the "goodies" like the board bag and fins that came with the board. Still have the FW board bag (which is now used to protect of couple of collectible boards), and also the hexcore FCS fins with the FW logo! I've kept (1) original FW logo'd 6-0 Alternator with swallow tail - it's "cherry" and destined to become a wall-hanger (or help pay for my daughter's college tuition - hah!) REALLY GOOD STUFF!

      You're right Fokai! I went that day from riding the "big roller coaster to the little merry-go-round." Some days you're ON FIRE...Just so happened that day I "had the motivation but lacked the execution." I'd blame the equipment - but that's too easy. I went from "home team" to "visitor" that day and was relegated to sit on the inside as a spectator. JBG has mellowed alot since his crazy wild days...Seems like our surf paths cross often. Like other Hawaii surfers, we all have "classic" (sometimes nervous) JBG stories!

        Good memories Myles! I still have the FW baord bag that came with my first FW 5'10" Futura. God I loved that board! It had a robin egg blue deck and a yellow bottom....super retro looking. The oringinal FW logo and pinstriping between the deck and balsa rails was classic. As beautiful as the board was it surfed even better.

          Yes Meek, they were unique. (Un-intentional rhyme)

                              Beautiful looking board. Really sits well with the decor.

                                I thought I would get a bit of flack about the room its my daughters, had a surf with Core and he said there would be some comments, anyway very happy with the board thought it wasn't that loose at first however after 5 waves it was ripping nice and fast, easy to catch waves, and nice and loose with great drive. The Jordy fins were a good tip and they went perfectly for a thruster set up the board will be interesting as a quad. great transition from my BP to this board I think I finally have my 2 board quiver. Just get ready if you get one for lots of questions in a good way.
