My mysterious friend known only as 'Greedy' wrote to me a while ago to share part of his, very focused, Australian innovation period collection all shaped in New South Wales. I really like it when a collection as a strong theme. I've met a guy who only does 'Narrabeen shapers' and another who only collects 'Hawaiian T&Cs'. I've been writing to a guy in Laguna who only collect 'Brewer guns' who is threatening to invite me over and let me into his board cave. Then there's Tim from Kona with his amazing 'Stinger' collection.
I'm pleased to note recent wax on most of them, meaning he's been giving them all a good ride.
