They had probably lined the comp up for Wales but their decision was swayed by all of steve's posts talking up the superiority of Lennox.

How close is this to your place Al?
It's about 300km north of our place.
Seeing too much of that lately, the world over, hope you came through ok Lucky Al.

You'd have to vaccinate yourself with a week of Beanpole beforehand to have any hope of survival.
Plus regular booster shots.
Yes. Three hour park hunting drives once every ten years, like a tetanus shot. Button tales for maximum impact.

Think how aboriginals feel. Living in a world for thousands and thousands of years without fcuking it up, and then, here comes guns germs and steel. And real estate agents.

As I'm sure you know, the warm Gulf Stream veers sharply seaward at Cape Hatteras, it meets the cold Labrador Current coming down from the north. Water is significantly chillier there than here.
Outer Banks have more powerful surf though due to its far smaller continental shelf.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Hey boo, Outer Banks will be considerably cooler than farther south down here. I'll be in a 3-2 or a spring suit. 3-2 or 4-3 for the Banks.

Re: New Concept in Surfboard Design and Construction.

You've got to agree, the pic of your prototype is unusual to say the least.
But yeah, it'd be cool as anything if it works.
