•Three years old, but never used once.
•Original GMM, not a GMM2, hand-shaped by Daniel T.
•5'6" x 19" x 2-1/2" - 33.3 L
•Somehow almost 3 liters more foam than my 5'7" x 19" x 2-1/2" GMM2. Interesting.
•Glass on Larry Gephart fins, actually signed by LG. Whoa.

This thing is a one-of-a-kind. Cannot believe she's in my possession. Now I can't wait to get her wet!

Best buy in a long time - HUGE thank you to the Pescado Verde!

Glass on FTW

You should put some Thompson’s water seal on your fence.

Maybe power wash the cement/stone too.

Here’s the bottom of the HIC Kerry Tokoro Twin I posted.

Just ordered one for myself.

5’9 x 20 1/8 x 2 11/16. 4 bottom 4 s-cloth deck with front and tail patches. Futures.

The bottom contours is single inside a double to a noticeable vee off the tail. Asked if Kerry can make a fuller nose outline and to taper the rails so it isn’t as full as the thickness I requested. I’m not going to bother with volume so much anymore just measurements.

How do you size these?
The dims are right there. That’s how I size mine for standard - good - waves…chest to overhead.

I have a 6’4 a little wider and thicker, round pin for over head to????

Haven’t really tested that one in that size yet. Looks like this week I’ll get the chance.

For a HPSB alternative I’d go about 2-3 inches shorter, 1/2 - 1 inch wider and about the same thickness.

Tend to narrower and thinner if you’re trying to match volume.

For example, when I had a Fever is was 6’3 x 19 3/4 x 2 5/8.

AO is 6’0 x 20 1/2 x 2 5/8.
