no offense but at 85 I would tell the doctor to f@ck off. Better to enjoy the remaining few years than play it safe.

Last kooky thing I saw that surprised me?
A guy with those gloves with fabric between the fingers and booties paddles out to the reef and rips.
I should have known, because he paddled a half mile to get there, but I was surprised nonetheless.
Another time I saw a guy in a Costco foamie surfing head high better than anyone else in the lineup.
Don't judge a book...

At the risk of sounding very kooky, why is it so critical to put your board on the car with the fin in the front? I'm just not seeing the benefit of doing this, and I dominated high school physics.

force of wind pushes board backward. fins forward catch on the straps and prevent it from shooting out of the rack.

I see the logic, but let me explain why I think it's flawed. The fattest part of the board is the mid point. If your straps are on either side of the mid point, and you're not a complete dunce, there shouldn't be any risk of it sliding through the straps. Then again, better to be safe than sorry...thanks for learning me.

Additionally, I believe that 'nose first' may put unneeded pressure on the nose which may lead to stress cracks or weak spots; especially when strapping up boards with more nose rocker.

Thank you dlrouen for this clarification. I was born ass first, and apparently that has translated into all kinds of odd behavior over the years, including putting my boards on the roof nose first. I will correct this aberrant behavior in the future, to avoid stress cracks and the calamity of having my board shoot off the roof and fly through the windshield of some poor fella. Hope you got a few nugs lately -sea and land nugs :-)
