...the slurry from wet-sanding epoxy should be contained and disposed of in a responsible manner , not dumped in your garden for the sake of a promotional photo opportunity !

For your information harvesting paulownia does not kill the tree, which is why it is called the Phoenix tree. . . none of the fruit trees I've planted are harmed by us eating the fruit either. . .



"kayu? kayu is actually wood in malay. . .

but if you use it on a person it is actually criticising the person ability. like 'the referee is kayu!' meaning the referee is an idiot who dun know the real work of referee. . you can also say it like. . when the referee gave a red card to a player because of handball, you shout 'REFEREE KAYU!!!!'"

Kayu is indo for wood ,not Malay....it also means porridge in Japanese....the name was given to me by an old mate that lives in West Java, who has more credibilty as a surfer than you will ever attain.....now go and clean up that mess in your yard monkey boy !!!!!......and in future , be more responsible about how you dispose of your industrial waiste !

Roy is the Sun King. Ubu Roi.

I thought Bahasa Indonesian and Malay was the same language.

I often ride a single 9" fin on a 10' board & know how much air it floats on with a fairly flat cross section profile & rocker,the speed it generates gives an exceptional run ,especially racing closeouts & going any faster wouldn't give me a longer ride anywere.
Looking at the profiles of the above board it looks like it would fly & need a sea anchor as a fin to throttle a bit of speed & momentum & even then by the time you've made one down the line adjustment the only possible manoeuvre would be the worlds biggest roundhouse cutback from dead water.

or :!:
:idea: Now Breaching does look feasible :!:

Turning while going down the line will be easy, but only within a certain range of large arcs.

I think the term is "veering" not "turning".
