I used to have this beachbeat step deck fishy thing I bought from their shop in Alexander Headland about 10 years ago. I pretty much rode it to death, and got rid of it. Does anyone know of any floating around (hehehe shit pun!) ?? It was such a fun board that I really want to recreate one, but I'm buggered if I can find anymore than 1 shitty photo of them! Does anyone remember them, or even better, have a few decent photos?
Not sure if anyone ever got back to you on this yep, but the board was most likely shaped by Mick Grace, awesome shaper and a pioneer of step-decks. From what I hear he was possibly one of the first, if not, the first to do them. I also hear that Mick played a role, along with a shaper named Stumpy in the development of Jim Pollard's first generation of channel bottoms, someone else might be able to verify this...
