Re: American Board Mule

It's Mrs boo that's travelling.

Re: American Board Mule

The Access models are based on the UK Met model but tweaked quite a lot for our region.

I surfed yesterday lunchtime, it was a bit lumpy and full I surfed like a person having their third surf on a shortboard in 2 years, but I had a peak to myself and the shoreline was undeveloped and it made me happy.

Re: post your modern day sickness

Psillakis does a model that's somewhat similar, and is good
