Classic surfboard and SUP event in IOP, Charleston.

Good friend Tim Neil, ''Beach Break Grill'' had his son Cooper entered the classic
surfboard and longboard events held at
'Isle of Palms' SC. this past Saturday. Cooper borrowed one of my classic surfboards a 1967'
9'-6'' Hansen Master stepdeck model. He placed 7th out of 24 entered in the classic surfboard event and 2nd overall in the longboard event. Great job Coop' ...I wanted to paddle the ''SUP'' event but work prevented me from entering. Next time.
Tim shot some pics to share with you all.
