Memory lane Lis-Pendoflex

Here’s a special board from our quiver. Stevie Lis shaped this 5’10 fish for Cher in 1989 (thank you, Stevie) and Steve Pendo-ized it with a full rubber deck (thank you, Steve). For the graceful dolphin—which was one of our mascots of the time—Steve cut the dolphin pattern out of the black foam and inlaid the white foam. Her bottom features a Team Bird logo from Birdie (thank you, Bird) and special Geppy keels with nine inch bases, a gift from Skip and Geppy (thanks Geppy and Skip). Beautiful surf family love, and at 21 years, she still goes well!

Cowa-flexit, Aloha!

    Further proof steve was born with that mustache! We just need more photos to trace that thing back to the source!

    Seriously though, what awesome history of board building and riding you guys have. IN AWE. 😀

    Haha, Rob, you’re so funny! love your sense of humor, Steve and I are busting up. I came across this photo in one of our old albums. Now Dolphin is down from the rafters and will be getting wet again, soon! We never stopped riding fishes, although we did ride a lot of other designs as well, through the decades. The fish is still my all time favorite design.

    Thanks for your kind words. We are so grateful for this life, family and friends, our times with the ocean and all the fun of designing, building the boards and riding them. Hugs to you and Maggie. . .
    Cher (and Steve)
