Jimmy Lewis Cruise Control 11í
« on: May 19, 2019, 10:32:08 AM »
I donĎt have an on-the-water report yet, but I did get the rail tape on my new board.  No big deal, I know, but for me it is!  😄😄. We had a blackberry winter, then I had to work, so it took a week for me to have time to do it.  Itís not a perfect job, which bothers me, BUT no one else will notice u less theyíre really looking.  The worst thing is that I couldnít get out a smal black hair (darn cat) thatís pretty close to the ďJĒ in Jimmy Lewis.  Aaarrrgghh!  I, of course, will see it EVERY time I look at the board!  Maybe the little hair personalizes the board?  Although the tape isnít on there perfectly, I know it will provide some bit of protection so I can take it out now.  Probably tomorrow.  If it paddles as good as it looks, Iíll be stoked!

Think of that hair as the imperfection thatís purposefully woven into oriental rugs, so as not to purport to be perfect in the eyes of god...

So funny, you guys!  Maybe one day Iíll making calculations about fins, rocker, etc, too!   Yeah, I just have to laugh.
Wetstuff, do you want a picture of the hair??  Haha.  I did email pics of the board on the roof.

Disinfected? Are you kidding? That board is ruined! Ruined, I say!

Allow me to take it off your hands and dispose of it in an ecologically responsible manner.

I'm afraid my predecessors really underestimated the severity of the situation.

This is the equivalent of a radioactive and will require some next level treatment which I'm in a position to provide.
door to door service of course, I'll unload this problem off your hands in no time.

Listen buddy, I said I would dispose if it. This is a hazardous situation here, and it requires highly skilled disposal system. Do not put yourself at risk. We professionals can handle this.

Some people take their dogs out on the SUP, now you can take a little bit of your cat, every time. Board looks nice, congrats.

Thanks!  My dog will go out, too, after Iíve paddled it a few times.

Waiting for first paddle report. Look at the cat's hair as a good luck charm. Congrats again!

Looks nice, s4e.   Jimmy Lewis deserves, by all measure, more exposure around here.

Spirit!
Congratulation, you got yourself a great board, and I am sure it will treat you well  :)

Taping, like anything is an acquired skill, which improves with practice.

Enjoy your new freedom machine and if it is Railsaver Pro, you can just pull it up and reposition it after removing kitty dander.

I canít give a good paddle report because Iím too much of a novice!  You could all paddle the heck out of this board, though.  I went to a nearby lake.  There was a little wind, so there were ripples, which were a pain.  They created a vibration in my calves!  Iíd rather have some little waves or boat wake.  It paddles GREAT.  I donít do it justice.  I couldnít focus well on paddling technique because I was just trying to stay upright.  Forget about moving my feet!  Iím looking forward to going out after Memorial Day, when the ďlake peopleĒ will be there with their boats.  Itíll be good practice, with lots of falling in.
One thing that bothered me was that the pollen on the lake actually stained the white bottom of the board.  I couldnít hose it off until I got home, and of course by then the sun had baked it, but alcohol got most of it off.  Has anyone else had a similar problem?  Solutions?
I also think I might shorten my paddle.  I need to remeasure, but I think itís at 10Ē over my height.  I might go to 8Ē.

Itís a great board, and I hope I can shift my feet one day, and maybe even get in surf stance!
