The Pig
     Many peole don't know that Dale Velzy originally designed 
the Pig board back in the 50s.I used to ride these at Malibu as a
teenager. The early versions were made out of balsa. But the
design was so efficient that the shapes were seen all the way into
the early 60s. I've seen many versions of this shape. And I don't
claim to have the closest thing to Velzy's original Pig. And some
of the pigs reproductions that I see around today are okay. But
my goal has been to retain a more elegant look. And that even
applies to my version of the Pig. I had to use at least four other
template outlines to finally come up with a smooth outline that
had all the pigc characteristics, but with a nice, smooth contour.
I wanted it to have class. In my opinion, some of today's Pigs
have too much "bump" on the hip. Also, some of their fins are
all wrong. If you want it to ride like a pig, then make it like a
Pig. And ask anyone...mine do.
