About our Dakota express surfboards

This guy came out of the bush right in the Playdpròtosec when even, the very last policeman, turn his back to the wood!..and they lost him..forever!..his voice was gone cause his low body temperature.. So they cannot heard him and lost him forever!… So the story goes on that this dude bacame the classic Madcap at the end of the border, the village crazyman, always dressing his Dakota lamberjack shirt… Some one call him ”Vecchio carriola” he walk the beach every day and started with the same refrain :
“…it wasn’ t an Astronat it’ was a Flatroket.. it wasn’t an Astronaut.. ” He just fade at the beach at night and go surfing the best taid everyday… With his incredibile half board that he used to hang always with, a flat rocker mistic super fast board with a bat-cut-tail, straight rails vee-bottom little nose down… And people! Ooh boy! He was an Ace, really fast and and fluid as the water below his 5’6″ flat misterious bat-super-cut Tomahawk tail… A real trimmer of his age! People look at him surfing faster and faster… And so long the

start to refear at him as: …the Dakota Express! Take joke of him when he keep on with his story ‘about a psychedelic tripgalattico to eclipseland… And how on his final step trough the Playdzone the autòmatic temporary door had cut almost in half his beloved surfboard…. But in the water he was so fast..oòh this boy was gliding on a 5’6″ stylish freaky peace of foàm..with such class and style that they call him the Dakota Express..foreverthen!
An awesome shortboards/hybrids alternative. Available from 4’8”-6’5”. Happiest at 5’6”-5’10”

” … I think to have closed my eyes and BAM
…I found myself with the board under his arm trying to dodge this your… sort of… spaceship!
”…The Astral Freak is a FlatRocket is not an spaceship, he corrected gracefully Capt. Maunder Thumbless.
”..You will have a way to see the differences” , he added .
”…And what you define as a BAM, it’s actually a Galattic trip, and also of this way you will taste the difference.”
From behind a thin curtain of smoke, a feeble voice appeared at the scene
”… But what kind of board is this? guy … I’ve never seen one like that before!” Pointed out the strange guy wearing a tattered t-shirt that read Unspoken rules and that Arod Ikim

hurried to present as the Mad Scientist. “… Dakota Express” hiss the humanoid “… It’s my new model, I’d just been prepared by my shaper Kiko…
And now up here certainly do not think I will be able to test it! ”
The four Astrocomics looked at each other smiling … then the Captain Thumbless added, “… If all goes as it is written and designed … this board might be The best thing that you could ever have had under arm , in this your first Tripgalattico … dude!”
