Jeff, although this board was shaped in 94, it was the November 94, so
it is basically a 95 shape. That is, I would definitely call it a
modern shape: the wide point is about half way back, the mast track is
well back on the board (also about half way), it has plenty of scoop
in the front, and a moderate no-nose shape. If I were to look at the
board and guess its year, I would guess late 95, 96. To my eye there
is not a lot of difference between it and what ASD is making now.

I'm live on Stanford campus and plan on taking the board to the
Berkeley swap this weekend.
