What does bulbous mean in regards to a surfboard?
Too much foam in the wrong places. It's like riding a ballon. No bite.
What size did you get?

I have a 5’11” of that recent protow re-jig

It goes up the face a bit better than I suspect a ghost type thing would, but doesn’t let you into a past vertical drop all that well, I feel like that is a deep concave thing — they sorta hang up for a split second at low speeds, maybe because the curve drags till it doesn’t.

But otherwise feels like a relaxed version of the superconcave, everything smooth, fairly graceful and even traditional in a way, and a wonderful tube rider, be great to take to Indonesia

I think I'm going to bust the fins out of the bottom of two boards. One has cracks around the heel fin, one has cracks around the centre. Never hit anything. Maybe weed. Maybe my bronze feet are pushing them through the tail.

I can glass over them but I don't want to ruin the bottom contours. Plus I have a roll of some generic glass. I want to buy some 2oz so hopefully it has less thickness and heft. I think my roll is probably 6oz.

I think BA and Thud need to take the blame for the East Coast flat spell. They bought new surfboards and it goes flat.

You two have a lot to answer for.

Yep, sorry. Think I’ll take Steve’s advice and burn it as a sacrifice. It’s only fair.

hahaha......my pupes are holding up better than the epoxy/eps boards I have.

I think Joshs boards were bullet proof and you might have a skewed picture now.
