DVS embarked on a run of magic balsa boards recently , from 5' 10" hydro fish to 10ft malibus , and everything in between...The last was a classic 7' single fin pin-tail , current being glassed.....there's talk of an evolution style V-bottom next..all unique and all hand-shaped..and all built for exciting project.....In Geoff Mc Coys words " Dirks been around forever"...........and still doin' it with ease...... :lol:
DVS rounded pin balsa ......double concave

I dropped in for a quick visit last time I was on the Goldy.
Dick was was pretty psyched about doing them.
Out of my price range of course.
Saw one of the balsa hot curls he did a while back in Hookoopu for $1400.
Almost, almost.
Got any more pics post em up.
