    Don't you know that every time you tie a leach like this a future Kelly Slater or Alana Blanchard is aborted?

    Also, if you're so close to me you can see my leash string, piss off. I'm tired of paddling down the beach to get away from your lame ass wax pattern ass. Find your own damn peak.

    #properwaxapplication

    Actually I always thought the middle 'better' leach tie was the best...

    But then again I inspect my leach tie before each session... along with everyone else's..

    Does the leash tie really matter? I find myself scrambling every time I get a new board because I forget to get rope or a "official surf shot tie" and end up using the shoe laces from my presently worn pair. Also I tie it differently every time. Does this make me a kook? I feel like somehow I missed the class on everything surfing and learned by the school of hard knocks, hold downs, and barrel rides. Also I pushed mongo skateboarding for like 15 years before I started learning "the right way to push" but still killed the other guys in games of skate. Maybe I'm just hyped up from reading pages and pages of the I owe you nothing bull**** thread. On the wax note... I draw 100 perfect smiley faces before I ejaculate my heavy waxification all over there smiling faces.

    I do it the middle way, just seems easier and efficient.

    Wax patterns? Looks like he waxed his board like 99% of surfers do. Do some diagonals and/or lateral/horizontal lines for a base then large and small circular motions to achieve nice bumps. If your wax job is just a smeared flat plain of wax with no glorious ranges bumps you got it wrong man

    I like your knots Gaff, and your #waxpattern. We may never agree on one thing though, sticky bumps.

    I admit, as far as taste is concerned tho, I prefer good old Mr. Zogs, idk if that makes me a poseur. The blue one. Them Mrs. Palmers. But for utility I prefer sticky bumps.

    I use Lemon Pledge. My boart shines and the water beads up and rolls right off. Oh, and it smells good, too. Leg Rope? 100 lb braided fish line. This trains you to never ditch your boart.
