You are slaying me "Sonny"!
U going on 60?
Back in my, ah gee
a while ago
My quiver ran from 6-10 to 9-6
Still have the 7-2 and the 8-0 (In avatar).
I am a Huck fan
And go get’em man.
My swell predictions are
Backed by Nathan Cool and NOAA.
Sometimes I can be so fussy
I’ll show up a while prior to the prefect tide.
And warm my old bones on the rocks
Just like an iguana!
Like I’m tellin’ Dustin
Work hard make time…
I’m not seeing much.
Could be “flat after that”…
You should know…
Is it cool to high jack a EERB tread?
Or more over STOKE!
Yeah, for an Oldphart like me.
The new kid "Skin Hoss" came by and picked up aboard he has earned.
Made before the “Contender”
AKA “gate jumper”
A really simple and forgiving idea.
At the time I was thinking “mini longboard”
So “single w/ trailers”
I think you saw the fins in my “tanker”
Just scaled those down.
Had not made fins in a while…
Kind’a blew the panel a little bit
with all the aramid fiber.
Next “coin” or money I fall in to
I am going to make some more of these.
And work on the “Mini Sim” killer
Yeah, those will sell.
But my heart is in the 5-10 groveler.
Shaper or board makers stoke…
You lie if....
You are not thinking about the “next” one.
And back 2 U
I would rather be someone's shot of whiskey, than everyone's cup of tea.
The gate jumper looks great - tail looks like a noserider?, and the fins are awesome. Cool that it is going to a good home!
The Pro box helps dial em in???

Probox has inserts for the cant, they come in 0 degrees, 4 degrees, 6 degrees, and 8 degrees. So you can switch them around and play with the cant. Steve at FGH said he likes to use the same cant on fronts and backs in his quads, so I tried it on one board, worked good so far. But nice to know I can always change it later.
BTW I think I am naming my stubby the Water Scooter - just seems to fit, the thing scoots right along!
Dustin's been pullin cheater fives on the contender.
Gate jumper a less tail rocker.
We will see...
"Water Scooter - just seems to fit, the thing scoots right along! "
Yep, I can see the water squirting through your quads.
"Zippidy do da" ?
BTW you can use FCS (not II's) w/ ProBox, yeah?
Update the surf to Monday only windy AM
waves maybe thru Wens with better winds Tues.
Shits and giggles time!
Saw this video of a old guy at a 4 banger "tuner"
met (young guys)
Just thinking about those fins Huck.
A mental picture
Too feed positive thought.
Hope for 2 things here.
Hope my sense of humor didn't bum you.
And I hope to get a ride report.
No bumming here, love a little humor, we all need more of that! Hope to get it in some decent waves soon, might do Malibu dawn patrol tomorrow if I can swing it.
No ride report!
Unless you have been "detained"
there is no excuse.
"You really missed it"
next chance Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!
I'll sumit this
Ah, in a crude attempt
Native Californians rule!
FCS no problem in ProBox plugs. I had the board out the other day at small Malibu, it worked great and was really fun. I'm still adjusting to it, it is so different from anything I've been riding. I will have to get it out in some better waves to really see how it handles them, but so far I didn't have any problem catching waves, getting up, trimming, and turning. The board feels really solid when riding, not squirrelly at all, very controlled, trims in the pocket nice I just kinda bear down on that round nose.
A couple guys came up to me at the shower and asked how I liked my "mini simmons" - I just said yeah great I really like it. They asked who made it, I said me, then they said who glassed it, me again, they were very generous with compliments, took me by surprise, few people ever comment on my boards.
I had it with me today but waves so small and gutless, a few guys out but I felt my time better spent get an early start at work, then I left early to buy some resin at Shapers Supply in Santa Monica, but they said I had to buy 3 gallons minimum! Pass on that, bummer. Down the road they are going to buy it by the barrel, and then dispense into smaller containers in-shop. But that doesn't help me now.
Bust on the resin deal!
I usually get my poly 5 gallons at a time depending.
Last week ran out with a backup of repairs.
Dashed up to FGH for basic supplies.
Oh and one gallon non UV lam.
Cheap. They been doing the 55 gal deal a while.
I don't know epoxy
But poly gets funky if it sits to long.
Volume and quality.
Nice to get shower side compliments
Verses hurled rocks and insults.
Maybe "custom order forms"
I am serious.
You are better than you think!
My first real go was rewarded with a KID!
”you did better than you deserve"
And I know it will not change a thing
All I can say is believe.
Shit man you have got one Hell of an EYE!
Glad you wiped cleanly!
Eh, in good surf...
Gonna keep this alive
Ah, like my stoke...
Gettin bored no funds for fun!
Gotta Bone Pile???
