We will let the owner of this sweet board tell us all about it himself.

Eric Liberty:  "This board was a gift to me from one of my moms nurse friends husband when I was a teen. I rode it a few times and then threw it in my parents attic for about 20 years before cleaning it up as a wall hanger in my stairway. It's a 7'2" single fin shaped by Venice shaper Guy Okazaki sometime in the 70s.

County Recurrent (CR):   Did you say your "moms nurse friends husband (aka, mnfh)?  Just kidding. OK, so tell us about the logo or brand on this board?

Eric Liberty:  "The logo on it says Guy Okazaki Venice, Ca. I rode it at El Porto in the early 90s".

CR: El Porto, eh?  Any memorable waves or dawn patrol surf sessions come to mind that this board was along for the ride?

Eric Liberty:
  The thing I remember most about surfing with this board was that it doesn't have a leash plug, but a hole in the fin with a string on it for the leash option.

CR:  What about "The Elf"?...

Eric Liberty:  "Oh, that's Elfy, Harper's "Elf on the Shelf"."  (Harper is Eric and his wife, Ashley's, two year old surfing prodigy daughter).


10-4.  Thanks E ! 
We really appreciate you helping us spread Holiday Cheer to our readership.

Until next time.....
