I got a chance to show my board to Mark Angell the man who shaped it all those years ago in 1978. He is currently living and shaping in Hawaii. He told me about the design elements that were popular for that time period and that my board was a great example the late 70's. I also got a chance to watch him shape for the shape off and it was great to see him in action. He gave me an appraisal for the board that is pretty substantial so I am pretty stoked with that. I think this board needs a spot on the wall in our house.
