GROTE boards

 Went down to Manhattan Beach this past weekend with my buddy Matt.. 
Saw 2 bands play at the RVCA store in Hollywood, then ended up at some dive bar where "The Goat" was playing a show.. That's Andrew Reynolds and Kevin "Spanky" Long's band.. it was some epic head banding for sure! Bought Dustin Dollin a beer and moshed with Brayden Safranski! Got some retardedly good taco's at 3 a.m. and then called it a night after checking out the first board Matt ever shaped in his parents garage at age 13! Woke up, got coffee and hit the shaping room down the street.. He's been shaping some rad boards lately so I figured i'd try out a 5'3" x 19" fish twinny thingy that I got the idea from, from watching the classic LOST movie (5'5" x 19 1/2"). Hopefully it will allow me to surf like Cory Lopez & Andy Irons in that movie.. (doubt it.. but its worth a try)
