Meet MariLee and Joshua (not pictured), a friendly couple who run the shed-sized Quiverito in Sayulita, Mexico. In a local ecosystem largely dominated by soft-tops, SUPs, and mass-produced longboards, they're committed to only dealing in retro, weird, and handmade shapes. Stumbling across this place was like walking into a time machine.
Skip Frye 6'6 tri-fin
Bruce Jones 5'8 twin fish
Bing 5'4 twin fish
1980 Fibrecraft 5'6 twin
1980 G&S 5'9 twin
Pearson Arrow 5'10 Stubie twin. Dang, what do you call that tail?
Now the last bit of board porn, which I somehow forgot to photograph, was this fat old school Town and Country single fin shortboard that looked like some Larry Bertleman joint. I would have loved to take that for a spin, but the waves didn't seem like the type you'd want to ride it on. Maybe someday I'll get on that.
The best board I actually rode down there was a San Miguel, a Mexican shaped quad fish I rented from Surf&Roll. I'm new to that species, but it was seriously like trading in a Cessna for a fighter plane. It was like meeting a friend I knew in a past life. It was like crack. I can't sleep until I get more.
