Amazing!

This is the greenest lawn I've seen living in the drought stricken west coast in a long time.

Also looks like Blane is in the TV dinner business. Looks pretty cool.

Hey, the slightly mellowed "Tomo" style nose on that looks really cool. Anyone care to chime in on why the seemingly "catchy" edges on normal Tomo style noses? Can the extra 1/16 of a liter mean a difference rather than rounding it ala egg or longboard nose? I know, LMGTFY... Jaja! But you guys give some real life insight. Surfercook was ripping that Gulliver V-Box in a Vid of his. yeah, I always wanted to see one rounded down like this. Blane Chambers... Gotta Google that, too.

Interesting rails.

The amount of time that 808 put into that thing has to make it about as expensive per square inch as Hong Kong real estate.

Agreed.  What I am wondering is Why 808 did all the work on a "Blane Chambers" board unless . . . . they are the same guy????

What gives?  Blane used to have more of an Hawaiian accent to his posts.  808 not so much but clearly they are brothers from some sort of mother?

Hey, that board lookis so rad, any chance of a shot with less glare? I was showing it to my wife (she loved it too!) and was wishing I could show that glass job a little better.

Those are the only pictures that survived.

Blane shapes and 808 was one of his laminators/ glassers.  If you were local you could pick up the shaped blank yourself, decorate it and glass it yourself. Or get it glassed/finished.

Would be nice.
