I agree with Raffer, this is a Big step up and you are handling it nicely. Neat, original idea.

Damn that's sweet, RT! So that's what happens when blood is offered??!! I like the whole layout. The face around the eyes reminds me of a chopper style cross. The board looks really clean too.

Hey rodeo...I was just down at a surf shop in Hermosa (ET "just longboards") and noticed that they had a very small resin version of one sorta similiar to yours. I think I've seen it on the surfing trophies too? Is that where you go the idea? I think yours is TOTALLY AWESOME with the north woods rodeo distinctive stylin'!! and he looks pretty big too- about 2 feet? or bigger?
is this one for you or is it goin' to a surf shop?
Nice work, looking forward to your next update

I get a kick out of the "belly-laughing" tiki in the
background....looking forward to seeing both of 'em
finished....do they get jealous when you spend your time
with the "other one?"

Thanks everyone for the super kind words .
Ben, Raffer . I am just trying to keep up to you guys . The bar has been set pretty high here lately.
Flacookz, Surprisingly it isnt top heavy at all. Its just under 12 inches at the base in diameter.
Polynesiac, The idea did come from a old surfing trophy. I believe there is a pic in BOT and I saw one online somewhere once.
TikiG , thanks for the comps. Who ever wins your surf trophy will be one lucky dude. Im just trying to catch up with your skills.
Sam , Tikiwahine , Herby , Fezape, Gman , Kirby, AA and everyone else Thanks.
Here is a little update from the other days session.
