Andreini & Co.

Last year, Antonio and I spent a week at a crumbly, often wind blown left point break that, when we are not there, is usually crisp and meticulously clean.  So goes that side of luck.  On the other side, we were there with some notable board hogs, the kind of guys who tend to show up with (or in this case, show up to) a quiver of eclectic boards.  Among these were a few Andreini Vaqueros of varying length and personality.  Even thought the waves never reached their legendary potential, the eye-opening experience of riding those particularly weighted boards created their own stir.  Since, Tony and I have become proud owners of our own models, Tony having picked his up yesterday on his way down to Jersey to try it out in the slop.
