Longboard.net Forum - Since 1997

should I trunk it (with a jacket) or should I wear a wetsuit?

I am at the proverbial fork in the road on this one.

I thought: "hey! The surf scholars over at jamboards.com can help with this."
Roy strikes me as a bit of a luddite, what with the sword and beard and wool tunic and all that. Funny/ironic that his board is being featured on one of the premier technology blogs, but here it is. The comments on the gizmodo page should be entertaining.


Impressive bit of web marketing there Roy.
Once again this is not my work. It is by Roger Hall of Surfline Surfboards NZ.

We have always had a gentleman's agreement that politics, strong social comments or other non-surf related issues have an ample and prolific range of other forums. Maybe that has gone by the wayside. Personally (which is the only opinion I am qualified to voice) I like what we had. There are thousands of other places to voice other topics which we can view if we want. This has been somewhat focused, and the result has been some great discussion and the origination of friendships that will last beyond a internet forum.

Tone of the forum has changed dramatically over the past 6 months or so. We have always had lot's of room for humor of various tastes, music, pictures, discussion, surfing related stuff for sale, etc. and other things related to longboard surfing.

Most important the overall tone has been one of good will and good natured humor (sometimes at others expense) and at the risk of using a old, sometimes overused phrase, Aloha Spirit.

Now we have many subjects that range far away from the spirit of the LONGBOARD forum. If this is what you want, go for it. My vote says come back to a place that has surfing and the spirit of the sport that we love as the focus, and not a side topic.
I got fired by captain that didn't do his fire AND safety and survival drills. He just said sign here. I always read them anyway and took time and it humiliated him. Your supposed to read and demonstrate every drill. Yes, i brought it on myself on purpose by making him hate me, that's why i haven't worked since dec, 24th. 09. I'm Too Rolling Stoned i think. If this post offends some of you out there i will ask longboardmaster to remove it. [Related to clean water], environment. Music, Robin Trower Bridge of Sighs Jimmy Hoffa would like this
