    Heavy water loggin’… do ya do it? Faves that do?

    Learned to surf in Hawaii back in the dark ages on a 10' pig built by one of my uncles, double 10 oz volan on the deck, single 10 bottom (not to mention all the patches -- everyone learned on that board; generations), D fin, ironing board rocker, 50/50 nose to tail (fat egg end), pre-leash (he'd...

    Moving from LA -> Brooklyn

    If space is an issue I highly recommend Mike Becker of Nature Shapes/Carbon Compact. I've ridden a custom 10' Carbon Compact for over a year now. Love it. Works in everything. Wide point forward, belly to V, foiled beautifully, splits in half with incredibly well designed bag so fits in back of...

    can anyone help me better understand (surf) nostalgia

    I've been obsessed with other sports. Wrestled through college (DIII, mediocre), baseball until 22 (sh*tbird middle infielder), fast-pitch softball until my 30s, slo-pitch until 50. Four teams at a time, weekend tournaments, 120-plus games a year. Judo, swimming, basketball, football. My feeling...

    Board(s) you're sitting on and can't / won't sell and why

    This thread cuts to the core of my being. This thread knows me better than I know myself. So here's the short, tragic tale of my board history. Rode one, pintail single, from the early 70s to the mid 80s (exact times/dates, not to mention their relation to distance, impossible to determine...
