If I could choose one board, it would either be the MR twin fin or the Lopez Pipe gun.

Damn! If I had the money I’d take them all.

Did anybody go to this? Were there any highlights? Luminaries? Inquiring minds want to know.

Yater said he went. They made over $250,000.00.

Rennie’s inlayed Spoon sold for $8500.00

Kivlin’s board sold for $40,000.00 Pops Ah Choy rolled over on that one!

Is that really true, $40,000.?
