My new Joe Bark (www.barkocean.com) weapon has arrived and is waiting for me on Oahu. Thanks to my training buddy (aka "da coach"), Eric Abbott (www.wailupeboys.com), the board was safely retrieved from A'ala shipping yesterday and unwrapped.
These are the first few images of the new pink beauty, aka the Pink Panther. A bit less rocker, a bit more volume in the nose, a killer paint job.... she's going to get wet for the big (17 mile) Cline Mann Ko'olaupoko race this Saturday from Makapu'u to Kaimana Beach. I can't wait!
