I just ordered a Moses T38 LTD. Its bigger than the small Dwarfcraft, but smaller than the big one, and lighter than either of them. I like the fact that it has a bit more volume than the *really* small pocket boards because I've used my board as flotation during self rescues several times.

I did actually notice yours for sale in your profile, but shipping from England to the west coast of the US seemed prohibitive. I think I might have bought the last one currently available in the US. I don't know of any others in stock.

Moses web site has been showing out of stock for weeks now, (that's for the T38 carbon limited edition)
I met Jimmy from Bulgaria on the beach at Fuerteventura last week, he had number 74, If I remember correctly.

Mine is scheduled for delivery at home in Oregon tomorrow, but I won't actually get it for three weeks because I'm in Cabarete right now. But you've made me curious as to the serial number on mine. I wonder how many they made.

In the meantime my buddy is starting his little production of 36x16x1" 2.5kg boards. Paulownia, choice of fiber/carbon wrap, 8mm inserts.
If I'm lucky he'll have mine ready before we hit La Ventana next week.
