Well, my “Winter Surfing Break” is over, it is back to reality for me, and back to work.
I have a few “Custom Orders” to shape, and I have a few ideas for a “New Model” too… I am still trying to get closer to a board that anyone can Nose-Ride more easily…. even though we all know that it is the Surfers Skill and Knowledge that make for Good Nose-Riding….but I know from experience that the board does play quite a large part in this equation too.
I shaped the New Nose-Rider in J Bay towards the end of my stay, but never got to ride it, although it was finished, the days that were good, I went to my Old Fave board for security, and on the “less good” days I did not want to take in a new board….
…. I had a bit of a meltdown, but I think I am over it now, and will shape the New Nose-Rider for Katy, and myself to try out…. and anyone else who fancies a go too! I like to get different feedback on new ideas!
It will be a little while before it is ready to try…. a month at least, as the factory is always busy at the start of the year.
Call me if you are interested, in this new Nose-Rider, or any other board for that matter…. I want to be back in the “Dust”
