A short note of thanks from the Carolina coast for Huck— I was looking for a new board, a main board for about 2 years, something that would handle knee high to overhead, single fin maybe, still hang five but drive down the line and move like mad— something special. As I still have no space or skills to build such a thing I kept reading, looking et al. and Swaylocks is always a part of research and inspiration. I came across Huck’s Ugly Stepsister and the rest is history… I read and tracked down the Stepchild by Steve Brom. I tracked down Steve Brom and after much insightful discussion the process started. Steve, who I have to say is a lot of fun to talk to, shaped me a gorgeous 8’6" Stepchild that I have been putting through the paces since it arrived in the spring. It truly is my one board quiver. Its my go to board period- like I said - small and junky to big and junky to whatever and clean, hollow so far so good- This board goes beyond any and all expectations I had. So thank you Huck because if it wasnt for Swaylocks and specifically the board you shaped and show in the Quiver, I wouldnt have my gorgeous Stepchild or the particular realtionship with Steve Brom that comes with having a custom board shaped (even 3000 miles away) So to you I say Maholler!
Hey thanks sheepdog good to hear how things turned out for you! Please post up pics of your Steve Brom custom - would love to see it!
I only rode that board once, then someone saw it who just had to have it, and I ended up parting ways with it. Hope to build another someday.
