A boards a board, I don't care who it's made by or how. That's a lie, I've had machine made things and hated them all.
My chips a "version" of a hobie Malibu chip from the 50s. 9'8" Rolled bottom to vee, narrow nose, wide tail, moderate rockered. There's a lot of work gone in aesthetically and it's a bit garish I guess, but I appreciate the effort the shaper and glasses put in, and to be honest it's the kind of board that makes you smile before you've paddled out.
I love it!
