    I'm lusting for a used 11' Mabile or a new 11' Andriene rehab glider.

    I appreciate it. I am in the hunt right now. Moving to the midwest this fall, so only fly in surf trips for me. Stoked to get back in to the abundance of awesomeness there is to do there though. I dream about surfing whenever I close my eyes still, even if I don't do get in the water much anymore.

    Is this a bad thing? ( I sure hope not!)

    Valid point; I do the "purchase, ride, determine fun factor, sell" thing far more often than I'd care to admit, and far more often than I'd like to break the numbers down on. After 100 or so boards in the past two years (!!!), I landed on three that I know work for me in everything I want to surf, and am now getting rid of a few of the other 9 boards I have that haven't proven to fit what I ride, how I ride or the waves that I have easily available.

    There is definitely an element of "buyer's high" that plays into it but I'm pretty happy I'm finally at a point with my quiver where I have a few boards I know will work in everything if I had to liquidate everything else tomorrow. Part of the fun and the disease, I suppose.

    I find that having too many boards gives me the opportunity to say, "Ahh, jeez. Well, it wasn't that I kooked out. It was just that the conditions were so much better for my 8'6" Yada Yada instead of this way-too-long 8'7" Thingamajig. That's just way too much board for a day like today."

    1971 FJ 40 is still my favorite vehicle of those I have owned. I think I shared the excitement, because when they were little my kids would call out "Landcruiser!" every time they picked one out of a line-up at 200 yards.

    Thanks. It seems the years of skating are taking their toll now....

    I am booked in for a cheilectomy and partial tibial sesamoidectomy on my left big toe joint... feeling nervous TBH - lots of horror stories about how complicated foot surgery and recovery can be.

    after my subaru has been splashed with acid destroying the paint, taken a hit to the passenger side from some ignorant bitch while getting quotes to repair the afforementioned damaged paint from said acid, and me rear ending some lady on the way to a concert followed by me bending my radiator frame back into shape and putting another 5,000 miles on it...

    i think it's time for a new car.
