Headman II

Mark brought in a vintage Trestle Special that he had beautifully restored. Rumor had it that it was one of Owl Chapman's personal North Shore boards since it said "Headman" on the board. Mark loved the board but at just barely 21" wide it was narrow for the waves he likes to ride. We decided to copy the board as much as possible but to bump the width out to 22". This added a lot more overall curve to the outline of the board.

The guys at Handcrafted did a nice Volan coke bottle green lamination. Mark is a crafty, hands on guy and did the great polish job himself.

I've said it before but I really dig the racy triple stringer longboards. Not only for their looks but because I like how they ride in the bigger surf.
