The fock you mean...and how does the financial state of surfing benefit you at all? Aside from the high price of the surf shop tee's you get in your Christmas stocking. And 'my case'? Kid, if I wanted to ride a shortboard I'd ride a shortboard. Hey what type of board did you learn to surf on? Because when I learned to surf...as in 'your case' surfing...there were no funshapes, and logs didn't appeal to me, so I learned on a 6' 2" thruster. You wouldn't paddle for the waves I pull in to. On my BOOG.
