    Carbon Compact’d Brom Fish

    After a couple of months wait, this just arrived: Bi-sected 5’10” Steve Brom fish.

    Torn meniscus experience anyone?

    If so, how bad did it interfere with your surfing? Recovery time? Surgery? Going in for the MRIs tomorrow for what my doc says is almost certainly a torn meniscus.

    Just swung by to pick up a box of wax and Randy (Pointsurfer on here?) has a siiiiiiiick 9'3" Davenport 4065 that looks new for $795 and a real beefy 7'8" Fowler that looks fun as. Can't remember the price of the Fowler but it was low enough to be a not regrettable impulse buy 'cuz I kept...

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