    weight works

    YUP. Just ordered a replica of this board, 11 feet, and asked for it to be made even heavier. Beast.

    When I'm around age 80, what's important in a longboard?

    That's great, thanks!

    Strap those boards down tight

    Been driving the Newport bridge for years. (Same height above sea level as the Golden Gate.) In a full size pickup with an 11'0". I only tie the board in place laterally with 1/4 inch bungee. Board never seems to move that way. Maybe for more security, use a board bag and tie the nose of...

    Looking for WAVE Set remakes

    Interesting, thanks for that info. It's nice to know someone else would choose the Juan fin. Not cheap, it was $190 out the door, but whatever. I paid short money for the board, so it balanced out.

    This is the one I just got from Juan.

    Looking for WAVE Set remakes

    Just bought one from Juan for my first midlength, a vintage Phillips I found at an antique store. Interesting, didn't realize these other options you mentioned even existed. Not an expert in fins...I can deduce from the thread that some are molded...so Juan uses the same materials (resin &...

    Wetsuits not made to last! Anyone else experiencing this more now than in the past?

    So I have a couple of suits with "liquid-taped" seams... Are you saying they're only glued together, but not also stitched, under that liquid tape?

    For those little, tiny, teeny, itty, bitty, weeny days?

    Exactly. I want to stand on that board the max amount of time possible, and just take what the wave gives.

    Wooow dude you just opened up a whole new thing for me with the smaller fin experimentation. I have a few I'm going to try now. Thanks! Oh, and on Thursday, I surfed both Newport beaches, they were good size like for you, but with a really fat, wide base...was that the deal over there too?

    For those little, tiny, teeny, itty, bitty, weeny days?

    FWIW, regarding a simmons longnboard (which I guess is a little different than what you just posted,) I also wondered if I would like one. So Andrew asked Jim for me... Jim's take was at Mtk, it would work, but not somewhere like the lighthouse. But overall, he steered me away from ordering...

    For those little, tiny, teeny, itty, bitty, weeny days?

    Off-topic... So I read your 6.5" fin in an 11', and decided to try the same. Do you lose stability but turn easier, basically? I just went outside, removed the 10.5" Greenough IV, and put a 9.75" Hobie pivot fin in my 11' Phillips. (Will try it tomorrow at First or Second, if this swell hangs...

    For those little, tiny, teeny, itty, bitty, weeny days?

    What's up?! I'll chime in, I'm in Rhody... I ride a Phillips 11'0", heavy (50 lbs?) in both my profile pics. Greenough IV 10.5 fin. Heavy duty calf leash. 50 sessions in 2021, Newport/PJ/SK. Ankle to head-high. I'm 6'0, 175 lbs. I glide, turn, and ride waves from way far outside, all the way to...

    Strange/Interesting places where you have ran into a surfboard?

    I like your style, man. Awesome vintage pics, and that must have been a cool honeymoon. Extra points for the tall, hot outdoorsy wife, and killer 80's socks & hat!
