Thanks Zoners

I'm asking because i just placed my SMIK order for 2019 and wanted to make sure I got the right boards!

JVM

That is great news that there are some SMIK boards headed to Canada! I see quite a few Infinity boards in the water on the west coast Vancouver Island. Would love to see some from SMIK. Let me know if you are ever headed out this way. You would be more than welcome to use one of my boards. 8’7 up to 8’10 and 115-140 litres seems to be my comfort zone at 70 kg and 63yrs in waist to head high beach break.

Cheers

yesterday am i weighed 178--too light for 6'2'--and at 60 YO, there's a bit of a choice between a lean and mean body, and a bony-faced meth-head look--so i ate like a horse yesterday and weighed back to 182 this am--only weight issue with veganism is keeping it on--with my metabolism at least, gotta eat tons if i am vegan--you wanna drop weight and feel great, give it, or some lite version of it that works for you, a try

my daughters'll go on about how meat based food is bad for the planet, and they are likely correct, but whatever your thoughts there, vegan is the way to effortlessly lose weight

at my prior 205, despite being in decent shape, i dont think the barra would be workable.

A 10' nut for the last few years, before then a 10'6", before then, the shorts for me down to 8"2 from my
first sup 12'6.  Style wise all over the place but I am back to my long boarding roots.

One of my colleagues, Mat, is moving to Halifax to work at the start of 2019. Great guy, passionate surfer and is pumped to be headed back to the east coast. Sorry to lose him but hard to keep good young guys/gals and their families in Vancouver. Housing prices are unaffordable........beyond unaffordable. My wife and I will be moving next year to Tofino so that I can surf full time. Sort of crazy but time is so precious. I am following Sup the creek’s lead and becoming a surf bum in my 60s. Hoping to continues well into my 70s!
