I’ve been waiting my whole life to ride a surfboard like that

Hello Charissa….Todd….

dowerThis is Mark Dower up in Santa Barbara, the day after Christmas. Todd, I was hoping I’d get to talk to you in person. I just wanted to say, I got around to riding the “Deano”,I’ve been riding it the past three days.

I’ve been waiting my whole life to ride a surfboard like that. If you shape me a hundred crappy boards

after this one, I’ll still be forever thankful.

That’s the best board, shortboard, I’ve ever ridden. Thanks….

I’m not sure if that’s because it’s narrow and small and light, or whatever, but I feel like ordering up three more because I’m afraid when I break this one, I’m not gonna have anything to ride. It also means I’m gonna have to sell all my other boards… they look like cows. Anyways, I hope you’re having a good holiday and we’ll talk soon.
Thanks again,


Mark Dower, Santa Barbara, CA
