    Hello All,

    This hasn't been an issue up until now, but I officially bit the bullet and bought a longboard. In a related story, the convenience of walking out my door and surfing is no longer a...

    Rode the DD in waist high waves that didn't have a ton of push. It was good, but I could've gone for a little more speed. Haven't ridden the neck beard but heard it's good.

    Tried it down in Hilton Head a year ago. It's sort of cool. To be honest, it's way more work than regular surfing. You pretty much have to paddle constantly to keep your forward momentum going so...

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it depends on whether or not the stringer has been reinforced. If the stringer hasn't been reinforced then the board will be much weaker at the...

    Glad to hear they are still treating people right at Sweet Water after Tony left. That has always been my favorite surf shop.



    Not this Joe Blow, but there are tons that will.

    I almost always take mine off. If I forget to, I just paddle with my fingers locked together (or get out and put it in the car). Only three years here, but haven't lost it yet.
