No Fool's Here

Last month was actually pretty eventful! I'm not sure why I didn't post this, but I was inducted into the Santa Cruz Longboard Union on March 5th! We are gearing up the for the annual Memorial Day Invitational for next month - lots of exciting things going on right now!

Last week I acquired a longboard from a gentlemen who didn't have the room for it. It's a heavy monster single fin - here it is pictured next to the Princess Cruiser:


Very old school! The specs are approx: 9'7" x 22" x 2.5" x 17.5" x 16" - I think the fin is pretty awesome too:


I'm not sure when I will take it out, perhaps this week. The structural integrity of this board is sound, according to my trusted friends, one of which helps out in a shape shop. I just need to wax it up. Sometime in the future I plan to give it a paint job that isn't so obnoxious.

Next week I am taking a Philosophy class and lap swimming to be rid of this winter chub I have been packin'. Better get in all the surfing in I can, as usual.

This past weekend I got the wave of the day - a nice shoulder high wave, perfectly in the slot, passing all my friends, who are all hootin' and cheering. Just classic!

Out for now!

I'd skip the paint job - keep it retro - keep it cool ;)

Beach Bum - you are the 2nd person who's told me that! hmmm... perhaps I will keep it... although my paint job would be very classic as well :) Thanks for the input!
