Thats really deep, Man.... ;)

Our local bouy was broke for a good while. Then it got fixed. Then I think Sandy ate it. I dont remember exactly because I wasn't looking at bouys for awhile after that. But it seems to work now.

Looks like it's more than cosmetic. If it's a Polyurethane resin board, Don't use Epoxy resin or putty. It'll be a pain in the ass later down the road.

Epoxy or Poly, you can get small jugs of UV-cure resin and whip out a proper repair, even down to the finish sanding, in one day.

There are tons of good videos on Youtube vids as somebody already mentioned. It's flat.. fix it nice and save time and $$

I had a bungalow on that block for 8 years. The place where this hostel is really needs and has needed a boost in cliental.  I knew some folks who lived there and observed many of the guys who ended up there. It wasn't a happy place to see on the daily. You could actually see the place rotting into the ground, especially after we all got slammed with sandy. I was worried it would just go vacant, or worse, not get renovated and rented back to the regular crew.

I rode by the place not long ago, and it was painted a fresh new blue. Some of the refuse around it was cleaned up. Somebody was caring for the place. It still needs a ton of curb appeal stuff taken care of, but you have to start somewhere. Besides the nonsense graphics on the walls, it seems the place was hooked up nicely.

I'm glad the Hostel owner figued out the domestic abuse thing was for the birds. I wish them luck and a bountiful summer season.

I had an argument with a friend about the the Longboard pop-up versus the shortboard pop-up. She was taught the "longboard  pop-up" and my assertion is that isn't even a good "pop-up" for a longboard, since if you don't get the long roll in, and have to drop late on an angle, you're screwed.

I have based so much of my long boarding life on the late take off for big and small waves. It's totally possible, though not as easy as on a shortboard. Late, sideways takeoffs on logs are fun as hell. You are only screwed if you're a novice. There is a technique, for sure, but I'm not up for attempting an explanation.

My short boarding takeoff is about not getting my front boot caught on a bump of wax as I drag my lardbut to its feet.

I wont buy one until Top Gear UK tests it out.


Now the board is really yours and you will wince a bit more every time you bounce the board off a door jam, or drop it in a big shell on the beach. I have had two Friarson's. He's pretty good at that surfboard shaping thing.


It's not easy to replace a stringer, but so long as the old stringer was 2+" it's not as hard as it could be. I did this in '07. Worked out pretty good.

At the end of this month, it will have been 25 years of me trying to learn how to surf. I am doing ok, I suspect, but I really should figure out how to hang ten one of these days.

Blue and pointy. It was mad I woke it up and tossed it in freezing water.

So super stoked for you guys..

I keep peering at every bush, shrub, tree and likely weedy spot for hints of green or buds. Some progress if you look for sure..

And elegnte opened this past weekend...
