In a nutshell...

Words and Pictures is exactly that. Words in the form of a story and Pictures that either back up the story or form the basis of the story.
I love old surfboards, preferably single fins from the late 60's and early 70's, so many of the stories are based around these.

My friend Andrew is a board magnet.
He seems to be constantly picking up classic boards. We have been friends for many years now and have shared and swapped some great boards. A few years ago i took a couple of pictures of him with some boards he had at the time. Some used to be mine and we swapped. There are also a couple that he doesn't have anymore as he gave them away, sold them or swapped them.
The deep red board is a classic. It's a Sea Rider and i borrowed it about 10 or 11 years ago. I remember getting some great waves on that board and really enjoying it. I have since picked up a Sea Rider of my own although i snapped the fin out of it about a year ago and haven't fixed it yet...

The little board with the white deck and yellow rails is a Joe Larkin Ski Free that was shaped by MP and is a great little 5'8" s-deck.
