Radical Moves

Post by outdoordan » Sun Jul 30, 2017 10:49 am

Hi all.

Does anyone out there know what became of Al Gibson?

After he sold Radical Moves he worked outdoor education and moved up to Scotland.

More specifically, does anyone have any idea what became of the Radical Moves surf boat moulds when he sold up? The Genie, Gigolo and Giro.

I owned two Giros and have been looking for another (and the original one I owned) for years on and off. I have never seen one come up for sale. Unfortunately all my photos of it have been lost.

Does anyone have any photos of the Giro. It was the smallest of his surf boats. About 2.6m long.

It was just about the best all round boat I ever paddled. Surfed it, ran rivers in it. Blindingly fast and really tough.

My first (and better performing Giro) had a red, white and black gel coat... a sort of muddled painted on finish.

Anyway. Just thought I'd ask. Would be interested to hear anyones recollections.

Cheers

Dan

Hi Dan
I have just been given a radical moves genie, its very lightweight I'm guessing carbon fibre construction and looks very much like a slalom kayak. I don't know anything about this brand so any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Maurice
