I just got inspired by this thread; I'm gonna make an ironing board template! Seriously, an ironing board outline on the right blank would be cool.Might even airbrush an iron and shirt or something on it.
lf you cant surf you could take a DUNNY door out and it would'nt make a difference, what l dont understand is whether or not this guy is having a dig at the people who can surf or whether he is not good enough to understand why boards do have curves. KR http://groups.msn.com/MyKRSurf/krcomweb.msnw
Are you saying Marcel Duchamp's Foutain?
Duchamp’s most notorious readymade was a manufactured urinal entitled Fountain. Conceived for a show promoting avant-garde art, Fountain took advantage of the show’s lack of juried panels, which invariably excluded forward-looking artists. Under a pseudonym, “R. Mutt,” Duchamp submitted Fountain. It was a prank, meant to taunt his avant-garde peers. For some of the show’s organizers this was too much — was the artist equating modern art with a toilet fixture?
Looks upside down, and without plumbing it might soak and stain the delicate leather shoes of the critics...witty
The Velzy "BUMP" was a marketing ploy to sell new models. The board is guarenteed to spin out on almost any size wave. This Coffin Model looks like it would ride even worse than a "BUMP" of the late fifties. A real quantum leap BACKWARDS!
I thought you get bumped off before you ride the coffin.
has anyone out in swaylock-world ever riden a coffin board? I couldn't care less about what a board looks like as long as it works, but, when I find something that works (for my style of riding and the type of waves i ride) i store that template, rocker, foil etc in my sub-conscious and evaluate other boards within my paradigm of 'good boards'. i think most surfers do that. it's gonna be hard to visualise a coffin board performing unless u've ridden something similar before. for me it's function not fashion that determines what i ride.
If your style of surfing is going in a straight line to the beach from take off, then this board is for you, l pitty the poor bugger paddling out when your heading straight for them and try to turn and you fall flat on your face as the board keeps going straight or it spins out and takes out his mate paddling next to him aswell. It might not be a coffin for you but could be for the other poor guys in the water. Shoot, anybody would think that straights hav'nt been tried before. KR http://groups.msn.com/MyKRSurf/krcomweb.msnw
