LOST.TV - TOM CURREN FROM 5'5 x 19 1/4

...Lost 5'5 x 19 1/4 circa 1991. this is how I got started shaping. I saw this video and Tom curren shaping his own board and thought to do the same. I made a paper template and had to have the blunt nose. The result was my first surfboard 6' 2 thick and full. clear no logos was a trend back then too so although I worked at Local Motion, it couldn't have any lams. It rode rather slow and was not magic at all, but I was hooked to make another one, and another one after that.
