Blue Hawaii Twinzer 6’2”

By May 14, 2018 No Comments

One of the very special parts of this trip was returning a board home! A Blue Hawaii Twinzer 6’2” x 18 1/4” x 2 5/8” shaped by Randy Sleigh, RIP. Made in the Islands 🌴. It wasn’t being transported there, but to his son, Professional Surfer, aerial wizard and motorcycle madman Josh Sleigh, who lives in California. Most kindly donated by legend giver and now eco-shaper Adam Baldwin so another piece of Dad could be home. 🏡🏄 Thanks also to Bird Huffman for being the other mule in the transport.
