This 1981-82 LIMITED COLLECTORS EDITION BARFOOT SNOBOARD is the very first of my snowboards made under the BARFOOT DESIGNS name as a company!
I had built built several one of a kind fiberglass prototypes before these boards!
The first being a shape Tom Sims had asked me to build for him in the summer of 1978!
While making this board; I realized I could make something more advanced!
I designed my very first snowboard in my head, drew it up on paper, figured out how to make a mold for it and that was the very beginning for me! That was approx October of 1978!
Tom and I continued hand building one of a kind solid fiberglass prototypes for the next couple of years using the molds I made!
I experimented with V-bottoms, channels, fins, outlines, flex patterns, ect!
We would go ride them and come up with better ideas each time!
Tom and I had a cold press frame made up by Charlie Watson and we hand made the mold for our very first skateboard construction SIMS SKIBOARDS & BARFOOT SNOBOARDS!
Tom and I hand shaped this mold in a little barn in the foot hills of Santa Barbara (Montecito)!
We had our own separate outline shapes that had the same wood, fiberglass & epoxy lay up!
We were suppose to get equal amount of production but some how I got 25 and Tom got 125 at Christmas time!
NEEDLESS TO SAY; that was a problem!
That is what split us up for good and BARFOOT DESIGNS began!
The LIMITED ( 25 ONLY ) COLLECTORS EDITION is the number of these reissued boards I have chosen to make because of its importance to me personally!
I WILL NEVER MAKE THESE BOARDS AGAIN!
The STOKER for me is that Ernie DeLost and I nailed the original shape and we have found all the original hardware as well as hand making the aluminum fins (as back in the day)!
IT WAS A LOT OF WORK TO DUPLICATE WHAT I HAND-MADE SOME 33 YEARS AGO BUT TRUELY ENJOYABLE!
