Is that a performance longboard Nick?
Yes! Yes it is. I was thinking of riding it on my next trip to Wales. I’m expecting about 150 kilojoules. Trouble is, I’m not sure which fins to “run”, maybe the Hot Goat v2 quad set with the luminescent green tips, the same ones Twig didn’t use at Nazare yesterday. Definitely wearing a wetsuit though. I feel safer in a wetsuit, it’s like a suit of armor against the ocean except you don’t sink to the bottom, the way you probably would if it was an actual suit of armor.

Phew! Glad we got that straightened out

Fcuk! I just got a crazy board shaped

9'8" x 20.5" x 3.5" Christenson off a Twig file, low entry to foiled vee bottom pintail quad.

Chris lives the classic gypsy shaper's life, orders collect at various points on the globe, he comes into town and tunes in with the machine etc, finish shapes a pile of boards, then depending on what's happening either heads off to the next port of call or goes into re-design mode. I think he's off to the Goldie now. Meanwhile he's left me this thing, a full on bombie killing spear.
Calls for a double plug and some zip ties.
Hold on, I was thinking of Iggy's and Loofy's camping trip.

Oh fcuk! I forgot, I will be pairing it up with an inflatable “pull” vest and also an impact suit with the foam inserts so I don’t break any ribs going “over the falls”

Yeah I always thought Nazaré was super boring before. Paddle in FTW
Naxto’s barrel reminded me of the sick ones I get

I bought a Christenson today too!
It's 5'2"x11 3/8"x 5/8"
Hope it'll float me.

Well I am looking at the far-off prog and I think Pipe is gonna be just fine for the Masters, first swell in the waiting period might be a bit large and north but it'll start west so the sand should be OK (maybe not perfect but OK). Then more, slightly smaller swells from the WNW and good winds from 10th onward.

Maui's looking good for Steph's 7th title.

Watching the girls at Jaws jump from the top of 25 foot waves. Massive respect, so full on.
