1977.
With my home made wooden press I pressed out my first kick tailed deck from 2 pieces of 5 ply Australian Hardwood and stuck together with
Epoxy resin with emmery cloth backed sand paper as my grip tape. Just finished restoring it with a newer version of the Old GFI Rad Lad Graph.
Ripped off Dog Town variation of course LOL.
29 X 9.5 inches, Original Tracker Mids with some generic double conical wheels from about 1979/80 I think.

^^^ Looks good. Nice that you still have it Smile

This is my first serious board. I have had my press for a little while, but this is my first board from the new mold using 1.5mm ply.
