Reminds of when I was younger, at the time we lived about 20 minutes from the beach and skipped out on work because the waves were firing. Really firing! When we got to the beach my buddy forgot his baggies. He was wearing jeans so that wasn't an option. Parked next to us was a little Nissan pickup and laying in the back was an old ragged pair of stained up baggies. Probably used for construction of some sort. My friend paused for a minute and then decided it was his only option. He grabbed them threw them on, which somewhat fit and we went out surfing. Luckily the owner didn't recognize them or if he did didn't say anything. That was a swell in which a one minute couldn't be missed!
Now that I'm older I keep a surf kit in my car complete with wax, baggies, extra fin, key etc... Fully prepared!
Surf forums these days, end up talking about how much money we have, how many girls we get, and how cool our car makes us look. Its such a waste of time to complain about it on a surf forum. They didn't give it to you and that's that. If you think its a load of bs then never walk in their door again.
those screws/plates can get lost on the beach or in or near the car,so I learned to have extra,but that shop is a kook shop,too.dude,if you can afford a bmw you can get a surf vehicle and leave your girlfriend home,too.kooks everywhere.when I lost my screw/plate in cm southend employee was screwless/plateless and summer sun charged me 4 bucks.kooks.i learned that lesson the hard way.and 42,you ain't perfect,it's just possible you could mess up and show up missing something someday,too.that's how you learn,isn't it(gloves left behind,no wax,etc.)?

never said i was, i don't think. but i also don't expect others to cover for me when i **** up. given the # of boards i ride & have ridden w/ center boxes over the years, i've never once lost a screw or plate when the fin was mounted in the board. they slide out of the track when the fin is removed very readily. but i keep my boards finned up, so that's not an issue.
