Simon's new Pieter pig.

post like this get me psyched! Simon sent this to me via surfapig@live.com:

Hey Mike,
Thought I’d share with you a couple of pics of my new pig- hand shaped by Pieter Stockkert under his own label Pieter Surfboards, who I ride for. The board is 10’ long, 23.75” at the wide point (I think yours are around 22.5-23”?) located approximately 10” behind centre and 3.25” thick, with a very flat rocker and nice soft rail profile. Ive only had it for a couple of weeks and still getting the feel for it, but so far its epic. Amazing how these boards can be turned on a dime and they nose ride unreaI. I've included a few recent ones from a talented local photographer (Holly) who works on the northern beaches of Sydney called Hollytree Photos (her Instagram tag is @hollytreephoto). She's a pretty talented photographer and captures the light really nicely. Also attached are some from Frothing Grey Grommets which you may have already seen on Instagram.
Cheers, Simon

Hi Mike, After much deliberation, I've decided to put some of my collection on the market. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind putting these boards up on the blog. Here's the skinny: Board 1: 10' Gordie pig, circa early 60s. No dings, original redwood fin. 3/4" redwood stringer. This board is SUPER clean, probably my best specimen after the balsa. Mustard yellow color on bottom is resin tint, not suntan. 1200 obo Board 2: 9'10 Surfboards Hawaii Billy Hamilton Stylist model, Mid-late 60s. Original fin, triple stringer, rare resin tailblock. No open dings, legit good condition. 900 obo Emails, texts, or phone calls equally welcome. (805)402-6465.
