Variables for a shit glass job

Im wondering what variables there are in the glassing of a board that can cause the board to ding or snap easier.

My board seems quite brittle, dents that have broken through the glass have occurred 3 times in my last 3 surfs.

How fit are people out there

In regards to the poll at the moment, a lot of people saying they can hold there breath for <30sec, meaning you can hold your breath for up to 30 seconds while getting worked over by a wave? sit down, count to 20 or 30 while holding your breath, then think of doing that while getting worked. Ive had...

All this water going to waste

Just a quick rant to say im pissed off about all this rain we are getting just flowing out to sea, carrying shitloads of pollution as it goes. When is the recycling of stormwater and not just sewage going to be debated on more? Recycle both and we're set for water, plus the beach will be cleaner aft...

seems your the delusional one Brendo, though i agree that Sydney is not the second most consistent stretch in NSW, central coast, newy are better, mid north coast maybe better too, but i still cant think of anywhere with so many waves in close proximity to eachother. I surf south a lot, and sometime...

Sydney does go sic, no doubt about it, bower and deadmans, dee why point, little av, av beach, whaley, narra, and the hundreds of other spots that crack in the right swell, (i havent mentioned south of the harbour) I think the real poll should be who can still afford to live in Sydney to get a share...

'and ecuador is pretty 3rd world still' All of Sth America is 3rd world mate. Peru is certinatly no less 3rd world than Ecuador. Peru is cheaper though, because since 2000 Ecuador has had the US dollar as its official currency. 20 US bucks a day will be plenty to live on though, including accomodati...

nice pics, but dont put any more up of this spot, too many people already surf it. I surfed this wave years ago, and it took about 2 years of surfing it before i saw another soul, shame about the crowds there in the last year or two, no thanks to some of the surf mags. tell everyone its north of syd...

I worked on the coast, and i was close to a 400 metre long left hand point brea...

I was going to suggest Ecuador for sure too.
I was there in the wrong season and got great surf, really cheap, except the airfare. Peru would be great too, but water gets far colder.
Boardies all year in Ecuador, good times, uncrowded waves.
