Actually, it’s a rib thing but I get referred pain in my shoulder with numbness and tingling down my arm.

I’ll let Nick speak to that as he’s all over the technical stuff. It’s lovely, though.

5’10” x 187/8” x 23/8” “modern” revee to single concave to flat exit square squashtail

Pretty easy board to ride but if you wanna push it it's a real power surfing board, good entry line thanks to the straightened rail next to the front vee, nice lift from the very moderated concave, very solid in a full power turn, nothing skitty about it, no slide or skid.

US Blank, new formula, 6oz bottom 2x4oz deck, very hard to dent.

Have some ideas for tuning it in future versions, but I'm pretty inspired by the feel of modernised reverse vee!

Do you prefer slippery boards or locked in boards? I like both but probably feel more at home on the latter due to my upbringing.

Out the front. Kind of weak 3ft, clean but slow with a lot of wonk and a half baked bank, plenty of closeouts. Water is still good temp, feels about 20 deg

Horses for courses

I dunno, I like skitty boards but I do not like boards that let go in turns, if they can't live up to their rocker line then fcuk 'em I say.

Sounds like the issue I had late last year and early this year.
But they reckoned it was coming from my neck.
Gradually went away.

Ah well, Trev, you see I also have a neck issue. Lucky, aren't I? That's to do with osteophytes on a couple of vertebrae. Ageing sucks balls.

Do you mean like…

The board lay in the back of my beat up maroon ‘96 Volvo wagon. A cool sou’ wester blew and my taupe angora jumper was barely adequate. I eased the key out of the slightly loose ignition, an ignition I had been promising to replace since February 20th. A loose ignition can be the cause of many issues, but I digress. An old foil pie container had moved slightly to the left and was now touching the orange rail of the MC. I was reminded that, in primary school, I could buy a meat pie with sauce, and an apple pie for twenty-two cents. I really wanted a pie now, but surfing on a full stomach has always been a bad idea.

I like it, the tension is palpable, looking forward to the next installment.

this could go in any direction. something suss about that empty pie container touching the rail, could be a murder mystery.

crazy new swell bumps from the east and south, at least three different swells - bumpy underlying longer interval east, junky overlaying SE windswell, and something else more from the sth. what a mess! It suddenly looks like spring.
