Re: Where did you surf today ?

not sure about the reef a few mates checked it early and bailed on it, "looked like it was tripping over itself" was the call, we scored some pretty special beachies down the road a bit. It might have looked different as the tide and swell direction changed.

I find it OK to swim with the foam and glass handplane, it has a pretty deep concave so is not overly buoyant and the plan shape is pretty small compared to the others. The effort in shaping, glassing and strap mounts is a bit over the top and the wood option is much easier. I have also had a bit of...
