Well thing is, i have a board by "Hooger Booger" It's like an Alpine board, thin, and long, But came with the soft binding, really old fashioned bindings but same as today, almost. Has a pointy tip, flat yet curved up back. Bought it for 25$ at a garage sale, and yes, it is a real board, metal edges and all. Has a feather on it and a circle is in the feather, says, "Grinder 148". Made in Austria. I did a search on Hooger Booger, all i found was that they make oddly mishapenly shaped wacked out boards. Only seen 1 other Hooger Booger in my boarding hobby/career? Can someone dig up anymore info on hooger booger. P.S. the only one i saw in the past was 2 years ago, it was the Hooger Booger "U.F.O" board, has very wacked out tail and front.
