    No matter how hard you train, it all comes down to confidence.

  • Got a 7'6" Torq mod fun.



    So TLS - ridden this yet? At the rate I'm going with work and old dudeness I'm giving something like the mod fun serious consideration. I feel like I might need something between my long board and HK. Is the 7'6 too big, does it feel ok to turn? Anything you like or hate about it?

  • Been lucky to only ride it once, since we've had so many good days that I could ride my smaller boards. The day I rode it was waist to chest and a bit fat and it was fun. I especially liked it on the bigger steeper waves When I could surf it from the tail, but it is surfable from the front half as well. I like that it's neither super light or too heavy.

    I was flying out of jfk on sunday morning, perfect view of nice sets coming in over all of LB... hopefully that was the last of my crazy town job and I can get back in the water... just in time for summer slop.
    As out of shape as I am at this point, I think I'm resigned to the fact that a floaty fun shape should be my next board, but it'd be nice if it were at least a little responsive. Sounds like this is.
    Thanks for the mini-review. If I see you out there I'll crash into you to test the epoxy strength.
