Winter preparation/boredom equals...

Some baby side bites to go with my recently re-foiled flex fin. Hoping this will add a little more grip when the waves get a bit bigger..........and judging by this weeks report for Thurso it won't have to wait very long!

Shit Happens...

The mini simmons I was making took a turn for the worse, had a total resin diaster with mixes going off to fast, drying tacky etc...
I was going to leave it as a reminder of what not to do but decided to just fin it, spray it with lacquer and surf it....whats the worse that could happen?

Its in the name!

I've have been looking at surf mats for a few months now and conveniently this one popped up on ebay. Its a 4th Gear Flyer Tracker Roundtail made by Paul Gross. This was an early Christmas present from my fiancee :-)

Had it out today in 2ft clean surf, definately a little wierd first, first couple of waves the mat folded under me throwing me off but soon started to get to grips with it...............and its loads of fun! Can't wait to get it out in something with a little more juice!
