Keep it to yourself though, or post a different thread that is full of hate. Just please don't highjack someone's positivism and bring everyone down with you. It is futile posts like these that brought down someone's hard work on another forum, and made them take it down, so now no one can enjoy friendly exchanges. One of the guys, I cannot remember his name, has documented and could recall any swell you wanted to know about in the past decade...to me, that was rad! I think you guys are both wrong in the way you labeled each other. Just get over it and......Keep the positiveness that began this thread going. Enjoy the sunshine
    you're getting a little ahead of yourself, laddie - this is an interesting thread and i don't see any malice here at all. i'm just curious as to how the mature surfer makes the inevitable transition.

    Sounds good

    hanna: "i'm just curious as to how the mature surfer makes the inevitable transition"

    Looks like I too the post wrong. That is actually a very interesting topic hanna. I'm sure it will show up one of of the mags as well, or it should. Would be good reading.

    What also come into play is the volume revisited movement going on-shorter/wider boards with more volume. I was reading around the Firewire forum the other day and what guys have been saying about their new Sweet Potatoes. I read one guy's post who I think is around 41 and he was saying how good it made him feel to be on a 5'8.

    i'd like to give one of those a spin...

    meantime, i'm over 50 and going from a 6'4" down to a 6'2 that's a little fatter and a little wider. i suppose i'll have to to start going longer one of these days, but i'm not there yet.

    basically for spring for water gear i wear my 4/3 until i can wear board shorts and a wetsuit top. but this yer im investing in a spring suit. but for boards during the winter my standard shortboard is 6'1" jimmy keith epoxy and im like 5'10 so the shortboard is good for all seasons and no matter what gear im wearing.
