Lost Virginity…..?

Well today at Out There a beautiful pair of undrilled 1970’s White Ash SNOGLIDE Barkeater’s came into the shop. We were fortunate to drill them first. They now have a beautiful pair of new Rotefella 3 pin bindings, and Alpina Blazer 3 pin boots. Also a fresh coat of Pine Tar. I wish I was the guy getting those for X-Mas.
