Good to hear the details of how you found the Liddle 9n78W

Half the fun of getting a new shape / board is getting the feel for how they go I reckon.....hope Wayback gets some action soon.........

nah - i know she'll go. although a less than spectacular day/conditions, i did see some shine to her. Just needs some juice and longer rides.

Offshoreuno: better be US$7 -- and if you're gonna hafta come NE for it -- about 6,000 mi. post a pic of yer beatup board - wanna see it. I always thought these boards still look good when they're all yellow with mileage.

Well, they WERE on there; I think :? .
I'll try again later :twisted: .

I'm afraid though that if I hover over my computer for too long my arse'll get fat, my back hunched, and my tunnels carpelled :twisted: .

But, Ric, since this is for the 'company,' (and my promised bonus which I have yet to receive), I'll press on.

BTW, "V-surf US" is doing much better this quarter; I've found a buyer for all our used Reef-girl bikini wax:

Merkin Enterprizes 8) .

I'll see if Mr. Merkin can forward you a few of his hirsute hymen hats for your inspection.

(please wear disposable rubber bio-hazard gloves when handling Mr. Merkin's product; he is still in the early stages of animal testing, and the whales and porpoises who have volunteered thus far have developed some wicked rashes)

Thank you, maestro munchkins :) . I'll sleep like a baby now. :D 8)

Red nose was some handy spray enamel I had lying around.
As I said, when I bought her, her nose was buggered, so I repaired her with what I repair all me boats and boards with:
EPOXY :!: and in this case some 4oz. cloth laying around the boat shop as well.
You probably know epoxy can't take uv rays so yas have ta cover it.

Reckon a bolt 'd go good on 'er; small one.

Haven't a clue re. Kodak software lackin' the speed;
my mental acumen trails Kodak by a few lengths. :cry:

Thanks again mate, hope ya like the pics.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:,.... :shock:,.... :twisted: but enough about me(ya barstards).

Wattabout the stick?
Looks to me like a '70's Tom Parrish North Shore outline shape
combined with the huge boxy rails of a G&S Morey "Waterskate," of the same era.
Best I've been able to determine from the Liddle website is that it was made for points.


btw, Munch, if you would be so kind, and if you're too busy to bother with a bogan I understand, please explain what you did :? .

I tried hosting my pics into photobucket at first, but it wouldn't let me resize them to what the Kodak Gallery did automatically(the size you posted).

Photobucket, though they said it was available, had no resize option for me, only "rotate".

In the meantime, I'm reading over Macca's and Squid's posts for clues.....
cheers

Off1: when i checked yr post this morning from my home machine (win2000), the pics didn't show until Munch posted them for you.

However on my office machine (xp) they appear.

34N? Hmmm - So/No Carolinas? What kinda points you got there?

Still no opportunity to give my hull a go in the right conditions -- but i went out on my mat the other day and scored some juicy little rivermouth sandbar - shoulder-to-head high for Standing Only peeps. ( Thats 8 to 10 times OH for a Prone rider 8) )

will keep you posted.

Off1: have you thought about contacting Greg Liddle and finding out when he made yr board. You have the # -- maybe he can shed some light on the shape. would be interesting to hear where he was at in the evolution when he did that one.

Sure looks thick. 4" you say? F*@K me - das tick! And I guess that's what they called a "Garbage Can Tail" too. The diehards pref the round tails, whereas rounded-flat (Arc ) tails are recommended for peeps to to em -- you cutback easier. ( yep ... I got the arc tail )

Is the board pigmented? can't see the stringer

No :!:

ah bugger, I can't say no :arrow: I just grabbed em via another means that dealt with the speed issue (wget - linux thingy) and renamed em ( :D ) and put em on photobucket and thats it, no resizing or nuthin. If youse want to resize your photos try doing it on your own machine first ( with gimp, .... or something else which someone else will suggest) and then upload em to photobucket.
