6’6″ Skip Frye Swallow Tail

 

This board right here is a 6'6 swallow tail by Skip Frye. I got this board probably in 2003 or 2004.  I was lucky enough to have a factory side by side with skip for about 10 years.  I had made it a point to order a board from Skip on my birthday and every christmas for probably about 5-6 years straight.  Some of them just being basic models to others where I'd try to get Skip to do something outside of his box and we'd collaborate on things together.  This board here is a, I think he just calls it the swallow tail.  I don't really think he has a model name other than the swallow tail.  It's an amazing board.  I really enjoy it for when I haven't been in the water much and I want to work on getting my rhythm and timing back.  Brad Gerlach actually borrows this board from me all the time.  He injured his knee probably 4 years ago and I loaned him that board and he ended up borrowing it for 6 months.  Every time he comes we hang out he always want to borrow it and ride it.
