That is one sweet looking board WS - congrats!

Is it just a case of practicing?


Without question, that is all it is.  As Bulky said, its all about TOW (time on water).

An important thing to remember is to have fun - start your next session with a simple smile. :)

The whole bottom delamed on my buddy's LB.  A little swirl hides a ton of imperfections in this case.

The Shape Shack / Re: Build a Vacuum System to Dry Boards

Yes, It's amazing how powerful the vac can be, I severely deformed a Fanatic Fly Race a few years ago when I was not paying attention.  It never bounced back.  Don't even think of reversing the process with compressed air, you will only get full delam. (Ask me how I know...) :D

To minimize over vac-ing, I use a simple valve to adjust the vaccum level and let the pump run continuously.

Gear Talk / Re: Uv88 or hydro

I'm still trying to get used to paddling a faster cadence with my Hydro 83.  I find I'm overpowering it, making lot's of tell-tale noise.

KP, are you looking for a flat water paddle or surf?  In the BP line, the Hydro is definitly more geared toward flat water.

Not sure what that means exactly, but Iím sure itís very funny.

Thatís totally out of context - here is exactly what we said:

EB: jeeze i am a specimen

B: Yes, you certainly are.

B: Which reminds me, I have to follow my dog around the yard later to pick up a specimen for her vet visit. ;D

If anything, I was being insensitive to my dog. Jeeze...

You did say, "the guy broke no laws, as exist on the books"?  And you also used the tired old OJ was charged but not convicted argument?  So, I'm not sure what you are whining about.

nice lil piece by a conservative prof at berkeley

I like it.  It's a baby step, but a significant one if it can be pulled off.
