Bill from Escape just emailed me this picture.
7'10 NC Dumpster resplendent with St Piran's flag
(Baner Peran The Cornish Flag)
How good does that look? I have to say I'm more than a little excited about this. In fact this picture has been giving me Tissue Issues all day!
Massive thanks to Tris from Home blown for cutting the blank and Bill and the crew from Escape Surfboards for all the finishing and especially to Dwight over at NC Paddlesurfer for the modified Dumpster design, incentive and inspiration to get this done, My mum for her unwavering . . . you get the idea.
I've not seen it in the flesh yet and I have to wait until next week before getting my sweaty paws all on it. Could be queuing up a New Years day session, now that would be something.
I've no idea if I'm going to be able to ride the damn thing yet, but even if I can't, you just can't beat a bit of Cornish tribalism and this looks like pure art to me.
"I wander if Charmaine will let me hang it on the wall? Hang on. What the hell am I thinking? It's going to be phenomenal!! Just look at it ferchrissake it's amazing . . . . . UUurrghmmmph "
