    Anyone that says they "used to surf" never really did in the first place.

    Unless you're paralyzed. but you're not cause you're talking about surfing again.

    Stop dragging your **** around, get a fish, or better yet, start kneeboarding!

    Pretty cool looking boards Chris.

    Thanks Chuck. Been using exposed raw cork for about 2 years now on my surfboards, paddle boards and bodyboards. Pretty amazing material. When exposed to water it releases a waxy, oily substance called suberin which provides all the grip you need without the need for wax. Cork doesn't actually absorb water, so there is no weight gain and the suberin never wears out. Also won't shred your stomach up like wax can, not to mention all the days your run out of wax, leave your board in your car and wax gets everywhere . . . .

    I can't agree more with the advice to get a banshee bungee. So much fun on skim boards, just don't skimp on your anchor or you'll prob die. Fun in the snow too.

    Got the twin Beater on cyber Monday for a steal. Didn't really know why, maybe it was the naked Anastasia ads in Surfing Magazine, but thought it might be fun. Only messed with it a couple of times but so far it is a hoot. I'd say a must ad to any quiver.

    I'm really digging these boards. They are pretty cool, and I really like the idea of the cork for traction and less mess during summer heat. All you gotta do now is start some super amazing advertising campaign and boom, You're a millionaire. Oh and custom stamps, the kids go crazy for those custom stamps.

    And a banner, of course.

    I've got one. Like everyone else said they're fun to mess around with on a small, mushy day. I sometimes ride it like a boogie board into some dumpy shore break or after drinking beer in the sun all day. If you're semi-serious about doing both look in to a used surfboard and a cheap boogie board. The beater board (I've got the 54" twin fin) is fairly short and if you're not decent at surfing it would be really, really hard to learn on it.
