frank leriche's pigs!!

frank leriche sent me this via surfapig@live.com:"Hi Mike,Thank you so much for your blog.It's great to see the pig family getting together.Here are some pics of two pigs i shaped recently.The 9'3 was inspired by a board by Gene Cooper. The 8'9 was a long time refection about having a board less than 9' i could knee paddle.(I'm 140lbs) So the pig outline came quickly to my mind because of the extra volume under the body when knee paddling. And also because i love the pigs.The bottom is not very piggish, flat botton and hard edge,but i keeped the max volume on the rails. The board is 8'9X 22 3/4 X 3 I can knee paddle very easily,and really had a blast surfing that pig in some nice waves. It needs a minimum of power to work and i 'm waiting for some bigger day to surf it again. It's not very easy to ride, and i need find the right place for the fin.But it's a very surprising board.My wife made some art work i really like.All the best,Franck"http://k-logs.blogspot.com
