Contrary to popular belief Express are not a recent entry into the kneeboard market . Living in Maroubra as a member of the Southside Kneeriders Club through the mid 80's , and knowing a lot of mates from Cronulla I got to see a lot of Express boards . Made down that way they were especially popular with those guys more so than around the Bra .I do recall as a grom ( and a red hot ,aerial barrel rolling one at that ) Gavin Coleman rode Paul Armstrong's shapes.........to their limits! Numerous others such as Adam Justice , Rob Rennie and possibly Mark Ashby all helped to progress these shapes of the time . Much like our Odyssey Surfboards of the late 70's early 80's the majority of boards leaving that shop during the period I am familiar with were kneeboards and with a large clientele and an obvious commitment to refinement , they were and are a quality craft . If you have ever seen Matt Gallagher surf this is testiment to the fact he wouldn't waste time on a dud option .
sounds good, from the pics they look like nice boards but it is easy to get influenced by suchpretty sprayjobs
