Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM
MM, what I think Cranked is saying is that you might need to go a little easier on the pie floaters before the 7’6” is a feasible option.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fanno's Jew comment was put way out of context and was a pointed putdown of Chas Smith and not remotely intended as a racist slur against the Jewish people. He called Chas a “fcccckn jew”.

Is the mal revival mainly due to:
the increasing average age of surfers
the increasing average age of when people start surfing

Re: Ears

Cold winds on wet ears. Supposedly, one ear can be worse than the other if there is a prevailing wind.
