    I'm going to stick to surfing the washout it's 30 yards from parking to water and it doesn't carry the touristy no surfing zone B.S.

    Congratulations man...nothing like the feeling of riding something you made with your own hands. You've obviously got tons of stoke to take it out in those small weak conditions today. I'm glad all of your first impressions are positive...my experience has been first time out, if something didnt feel right, it usually stays that way, unfortunately.

The surf looked better than was forecasted.After finding parking and a two block walk to the Peir I was turned away by lifeguards who informed me there was no surfing inbetween the yellow flags. I packed it up and headed to the free parking (in front of houses) just after the washout parking strip. The surf was small with the occasional three foot set. The surf really cleaned up later in the session. I set the board in the water for the first time and it was surprisingly boyant. I began the paddle out and immediately noticed how stable of a platform this board provides. i was able to keep my legs cleanly tucked on the deck with no overhang. i passed the initial sets with ease. The whitewater normally pushes me back a good bit on my foamie but this one broke through with minimal pushback. I got passed any whitewater or peaking swells quicker than I would have emagined. I was farther out than I needed to be. This board paddles a perfect ten!

    To spin this board was not a chore. I took just a little longer than my 8 footer.

    I spent most of the time in the surf getting adjusted to the board and were to place my body for good takeoff. I was positioning myself to far back at first. I didn't account for the tail sinking as much into the oncoming swell. After I corrected this I had little trouble picking up even little swells. Although I did sap a lot of my energy with the carry out to the Peir and back to the car. (4 blocks total) By the the time I became acclimated to the new board my shoulders were sapped and I didn't have good paddle power. The few sets I cought dissipated to whitewater by the time I popped up. Standing up I felt planted and steady but, I know I was off the sweet spot. This will take a few more sessions to get a good feel for the board.

    Despite the limited conditions today I can see the potential I haven't tapped into yet with this board. I don't have any negative comments to make about the performance. It's a spectacular board.

    I'm not buying it. Call me a skeptic, call me anything you want for that matter (just don't call me late for dinner), but this 'Steve' moniker is The Gnome de Plume of The Gnome.

    The deliberate mis-spellings, the off-American English terms, it's just adding up to another self-induced keyboard gigglefest from the stealth gnome.

    As one of the more illustrious names on the board always says: pics or it didn't happen.
    Today's pics posted here; not in several days after the Photoshopping has commenced.

    Few really care about the ride report. Most chirp about high school antics. I work a 9 to 5 like any working man. I'll get to the ocean when I can. More to come when I have a day off and waves.

    Bingo!

    Totally fake. 'Steve' and 'Roy Stuart' are .... The Gnome itself.

    When you've been called out as a scammin' Kiwi, time & time again, the solution is to always, always, always blame the accuser.

    We've seen this time & time before from the Gnome. That's what Gnomes & conspiracy theorists do: they post up some yah-yah & then tell you to disprove them. When you can't disprove the guy, and you can't because it doesn't exist, said wacky person says 'see, there ya go, you can't disprove me so it must be real.'

    So, if this 'ride' actually took place yesterday, as 'Steve's' posts indicate, then why would 'Steve' yap about being a 9 to 5 guy when he would be at work yesterday. And if it was today that he rode the board, BTW, who in this country works "9 to 5 like any working man" on a Saturday on Memorial Day weekend. Oh, snap, a KIWI wouldn't know that this is a holiday weekend here in AMERICA! Oopsey! Guess you sort of missed the memo on that one, Gnome.

    And after all of 'Steve's' posts about the magical board from S Carolina as inspired by the deranged Gnome, 'Steve' apparently doesn't take any pics of himself in the water on the inaugural voyage of his Gnomeboard.

    Sorry, Gnomey but you're busted. Yet again. You'd do anything & screw over anyone to sell one of those kindling piles. Is 'Steve' the name you gave your giggle buddy blow up doll known only to you in your dark basement?

    Yeah, Steve, it's been 1 month since you joined, why not just take a new picture of yourself with the board or hell just a picture of today's date just to dispel the notion you are Roy. Maybe pick a different background then the one we've seen.
