Not so much on crack as just clueless but funny nonetheless.
a 1950’s windsurf con that’s never been waxed but apparently still got some dings along the way.
Waiting on an epoxy paint to come before I throw down the top layer of ply so it doesn’t get all wet and warp.
I’ll figure it out but if anyone has advice I’ll listen.
trying to figure out the coping.
There is enough sag in the 2x10 framing on the top crossbeam that holds the decking just below...
Kids surf contest was postponed because it’s flat but we found some fun 2-3’ winds swell that was great for a couple hours of rides.
Such a fun Saturday morning, a couple decent rides on the magic ham deluxe and even better watching the kids smile after their own good rides.
Was able to sneak away from work and get a couple hours out in the water with my kids.
Knee to thigh high peelers, 70 degree air and water, light offshore winds and new longboards for both of them made for a great morning.
Haven’t had enough of those sessions watching them smile recently, made...
I picked up an 11’ Mitsven last year and had the same reaction after my first time out.
Board feels like a tank but is also so easy to maneuver.
I went 9”4a to start and have worked my way down to a 6.5” skip. On bigger days I’ve put in a 7.5 skip. Board catches anything and with a little size...
300 HP was the alternative to trying to sail close to the wind on that thing.
Had some fun times on those trips.
Days or weeks offshore, catch your dinner and an occasional surf all while living on someone else’s expensive toy and cash in hand when you get to your destination.
Was a good way...
Bit of a stretch but, last time I paddle off a boat for waves was when I was doing boat deliveries.
Guess that makes this my wave chasing boat?
Had two long boards onboard and we found swell in the Bahamas and in tortola during stops on our way down from Maine to the Caribbean.
Picked up an 11’2” boardworks aipa stinger for a friend. I probably won’t cross paths with him for a month or so and have his blessings to give it a spin if/when we get some swell down here before I pass it off to him. Board has a a long box and fcs side bite options.
Looking for recommendations...
Anyone have something to add to this?
A friend who’s following my lead on the big board fun is thinking about grabbing one of these big brother stingers in an 11’2”.
He’s not big enough to to need this much float but is a solid surfer that can move a board around and move around on a board...
