I also use this term ("comps") with great restraint as some of them seem to be floating around, talking and falling off contests, while the rest of us mugs fight for a wave on a doubly crow...

Run 20 meters just in case 5 - Change jocks 6 - As time goes on the 4...

IMO the way to go is; 1- get a shaper to make wot suits you. give feedback over time and refine wot u like 2 - to last longer get a decent glass job (with a deck patch, and full rail laps) on them. many off the racks boards i have fondled are crazy light - is this for performance or to get u back to...
