fish

Good one max, at 6'2'' x 16nx22widex22tx3'' thick, it could carry a few cars haha. Its more than a foot shorter than im used to, hence the full volume. Salty, here's a pic of the fins, i dont have any of the other views yet. [img][img]http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j157/beerfan/fish-is-done-3.jpg...

Startin to get used to my fish. Sweeeeet!

I've had my homemade fish out about 6 or 7 times now. So far, its been a bit hit and miss, one wave i'd be in the sweet spot, the next, i was way off. But today, i had a great surf on it. Waves were only waist to chest high, but had a bit of shape and a bit of push to them. I find that when you stay...

sport

Not being too experienced, i find surfing is a lot like golf. The conditions may be sh&t, but for some reason, you surf good. Then, the conditions might be good ( great shape ), but you surf sh&t. Very rarely ( for me at the moment anyway! ), you'll be lucky, and have good shaped waves, and you'll s...

Weihenstephaner pilsner is a top lager, and Adnams or timothy taylors landlord are great bitters. Can't buy too many of em, or you'll owe the bank your house!

fish

Ado, listen to rick. I started making boards not long ago because of ric. I second his advice on UV resin. Put up a tarp if you have to mate, i just laminated a 6'2'' x 16x22x16 fish, and it was the second board i ever glassed. I had no kinks whatsoever, and 2 small air bubbles. Also, your fred can ...

kooks

I've been riding my minmal for around 12 months. I surf ( or try to surf ) the most uncrowded breaks, and observe all the "rules". This doesnt stop other more experinced surfers occasionally dropping in on me. Big deal. Once or twice, who cares. I don't think the problem is a "kook" problem, just a ...

home brew

Munch, you may as well brew from scratch, it's not that much extra trouble. Or try a liquid yeast. It will make a huge difference to your beer

kook

Man, i would say i fit the profile of kook exactly. minimal, surfing for 12 months ( nearly ! ). BUT, i stay out of the way, and dont kid myself by taking on bigger or dodgier than i can handle. It's easier down here ( the gong ) because midweek early, there's no one around to get in the way of. Not...

UV resin

If i was just doing one side at a time, i could just do one side ,then expose and fully cure, then turn over, and do the other side??. Doing both sides at the same time would be a bit too tricky for me at this stage. P.S ric, the brewing has just about stopped since i started surfing!, im gunna spen...
