compare and contrast.

cooperfish blackboard above...velzy jacobs balsa below.


  1. Yeah, I was wondering what's the official name of the color/tint of the latest prototype? That's a very exciting board.

    Hard to compare from those photos. The balsa looks a little more round at the tip of the nose. I'd love to see a full rail shot of both. I can't wait to feel em both in person!

  2. yeah neat. The color scheme makes me think of those shots of pre-production cars tooling around Detroit.

    That pic on top makes the rails look pretty parallel too. Looks tasty.

  3. when i have these two boards in my arms , i will get the camera to them. Gene took this shit seriously. the cbb is not meant to be an exact replica of the vj. we honored tradition and took a liberty or two.

    the color scheme is meant to look as if the board had been glassed back in 58 or 59 and left in some ones wine cellar or something.

    i am trying my hardest to stay calm about both of those boards.

  4. For what its worth, I think the color scheme is the best I've ever seen. That's exactly what I thought, looks like it was glassed 40 years ago. Perfect.
