New Custom MTH Board - "Potato Chip" - Sharing the Stoke

Got me a new custom MTH Board!! Mike bent over backwards, with all my crazy inputs, to create a whole new mold (bending metal in the process) just to get this board pressed out. His boards are works of ART!!
Love the "bleeding" rails, like I just sliced a shark...
Video of first ride here:

So, here it is...
165cm x 46cm
1.75" Rocker

Tossed some cooshy Switch kiteboarding pad/straps in twin tip mode.
Some KGB 2.5" fins in "mutant" config to accommodate my "goofy" stance. (Thanks Serge!)
Edges like a home-sick angel upwind...yet, surfs like a bigger board when you flatten it out...so fun!!
Turned out 2.5lbs lighter than my old LF Proof 161 board.
Still stoked, and more videos to come...as I get out on it...

If you get a chance, check out his boards!! http://www.mthboards.com/

Switch Element 2 15M, Element 3 11M, Helium 18M
Liquid Force Proof 161, MTH Custom (Water)
