9’10” Joel Tudor 60’s Longboard by Donald Takayama. I purchased the longboard from Mitch’s Surfshop, La Jolla CA. in 1994 for ~$1000 dollars. Long boarding was coming back in style and it looked like a sweet ride. I didn’t think twice about the cost since I had already purchased a 9’8″ Speed Shape (DT-1) prior and knew that these boards were the cats meow. Back in the day, I bought the noserider as a present for myself for finishing graduate school. I never thought I would have ridden these boards this many years. I also got great advice from Mitch as well.
