pigs in the UK!!!

mister griffster sent this to me via"Hey Mike, I've been following your blog for several years now, and been meaning to post these pigs to you for a while, I have no excuse apart from being a lazy ass... Here's 2 from the quiver, one that Rob Lion (Royal) shaped for me back last year - It's a Post Modern Pig 9'6" x 23 x 16 7/8 x 16 / 1/2. Nicely pinched rails, concave to belly roll with tail lift, with scooped tail and very slight S-deck about 22-25lb. Rocker is probably a little flatter up front than normal and absolutely flies when pressing the accelerator. Rob's now working over at Santa Cruz Board Builders so check him out if you're in the area. The other is your standard Michel Junod Pignar - 9 8 1/2 x 22 3/4 x 16 1/2 fore and aft with the standard step concave through to roll and traditional piggy rocker at about 25lb. Weighted beautifully to generate it's own trim speed and noserides better than some out and out noseriders I've ridden. Both boards leave you grinning from ear to ear! Keep up the good work Sir and long live the pig!"

it's post like this that validate this effort. i get so stoked to see what else is out there.
