Default Lost Board

Aggression Barn Door 135 x 46 Red, White & Blue Graphics.

Lost off of the Backside Skyway 5/18/06. Might wind up on the beaches or picked up by a fisherman.

Would appreciate people keeping their eyes and ears open.

Paul

Thanks to Billy for coming to our aid and searching for the board. This guy is a true friend and a community asset.

Will keep an eye out Paul, I hope it turns up.

You couldn't be more accurate in your description of Billy Parker. His actions speak for themselves. I keep learning from that guy every day.

Yeah, ditto that on Bill. He's always been a great guy.

Edit at 3:30.

I just got the whole story. Bill drove all the way out to SW (was NOT already there at SW) to put his jetski in the water and look for the lost board... it got away in the water.

Is that a great guy or what! Just thought that act deserved recognition
(and it could put a smile on someone's face to hear that today.... it did me :P )

Yep, that's exactly how it happened. I was there at the backside that day, there were several close calls, then the board disappeared and next thing you know, Billy shows up with his ski to go look for the board. He actually wanted to stay out and look for longer but the owner of the board insisted that he go in, realizing that the board was lost and it had been too long for the board to be found...

So,

Is there a MORE deserving rider locally (anywhere really) of full sponsorship and getting the hookup?
I hope it all turns out great for Bill. He deserves it for so many reasons, his riding abilities being only one on a long list. :wink:

BTW.. that board is helping some offshore fisherman nail some dolphin right now. That's a great size for fish attracting floating flotsum!!
