So other than the 100 surfboards, swimmers playing in the break, and 80% of the waves having party written all over them I didn't see what all the fuss was about. The vibe seemed friendly to me....
Thanks for the input. Just to be clear I'm talking about wetsuits with attached hoods vs not. If I got a wetsuit w/out an attached hood I would still buy a hood to wear or a vest with a hood.
I surf virginia beach almost exclusively and I'm about to make the plunge to get more sessions in. I'm really not sure how far my 3/2 will get me into the fall because I pretty much wrap it up once...
Stickers were gone as soon as I got home. Touché on the leash loop.
We're you the guy who let me walk across the street?
I was there but was in the water a few minutes after 6...first one in the water on the north side of the pier. I saw a dorsal fin that I...
Sure thing. You want to ride it on a typical summer day our hold out for a decent swell? Or both?
Seriously? How much time do you have under your belt since puberty? I haven't been called clit in a couple of decades.
Took it out this morning in the slop the NE winds are throwing at Virginia Beach right now. Was waist to chest with a few shoulder high sets. Had a f***in blast.
Yeah but it matches my vagina so it was a no brainer.
Ride reports will likely come in stages...my other board is 9'6". I picked up a retro fish a few weeks ago too but have only had it out twice. All I've figured out so far is that it's way different...
Worst I've ever been hit was water skiing. Fell into a school of them and was peeling them off my face and arms while I waited for the boat to come back around to get me. Only thing medicinal we had...
I've yet to see them...kinda. A few weeks ago they were out in droves but just a bunch of disc shaped jellies. No tentacles.
As far as treating the stings, I use meat tenderizer. Works great.
4 people taking off for the same wave...yeah, I'd surf somewhere else.
I've been eying this thing for a year and it finally came home with me. 5'10"x22 7/8"x3".
To OP. I don't know much about short boards but I do know a thing or two about craftsmanship. Austin's boards are oozing with it.
What kind of performance where you hoping for from a 7 1/2 foot board?
You make soap and hand bags
I didn't have to quit surfing but I did take a couple minutes to get my breath back.
I tend to hurt myself more than most whether minor or major injury. Today it was minor. Lost my balance on the board, the rail reached for the sky, and I took a shot from said rail into the ribs. ...
Austin's longboard glass schedule is ultra heavy. I can't remember exactly what mine is but 8&6 on top with a 4 or 6 oz deck patch and 8&2 on the bottom sounds right. The 2 oz on the bottom is there...
I grabbed my opponents lapel with one hand, his sleeve with the other and stepped in for a take down. He squatted to lower his center of gravity and put his weight on my shin. Following that were...
Brazilian Ju Jitsu...I still miss it but I just can't get myself back on the matt.
