Any Advice on Hiding Two Surfboards?



I don't even want to go into it. You wouldn't believe me anyway. Obviously, I have no self-restraint when it comes to surfboards. None! Zero! Zilch! Nada!

The funny thing is I'm not an impulsive person at all. I have never been impulsive. I've spent more than 40 years being a methodical and rational person. I never made snap decisions. I always thought out the consequences of my actions. Where did that person go? As soon as I step into a surf shop or a factory—as I did today at Con Surfboards—I lose all sense of what's financially right and wrong. I'll just say this about the picture: yellow and red swirls on the bottom and rails, and yellow with a red pinline on the deck. There. That's as much as I'm willing to divulge at this point. (Sigh)

Seriously? There needs to be an Oprah show dedicated to impulse buying surfers. Because it's all I can do RIGHT NOW not to lock up my office and go purchase a board. Any board.

On that note, a request: if anyone reading this can kindly give me the template/specs for a 9'6" Dewey Weber Performer, I'd greatly appreciate it. That's the shape I want for my next ride, but there's no way I'm gonna pay one of DW's kids to do it when I can have Ody make one for $300 less...(and yes, the wife is getting something shiny for her birthday next week.)

That's what I'm talking about! Good choice. Maybe you should stash it with me so you'll have a board at the ready for San Onofre...

It's an 8'1" tri fin Funboard Pro from Con Surfboards. All I did was spot the sign. I thought, "Con Surfboards is in the 'hood?" So I had to stop the car and check it out. One thing led to another. Before I knew it, I was talking to Bruce Grant (a well-known shaper) and being ushered into the shaping bay. Grant showed me everything. It was the first time I'd ever seen a blank or all of the tools shapers use to check the rocker and concave of a board. Anyway, Grant didn't think I should get an egg and suggested that I get their super fast funboard. I didn't have to put any money down. The board won't be ready for months. Thank god!

Yay!! A new board!! It's very cool. So you decided to get a tri-fin huh? Noticed that my new board got a mention a few days ago. She hasn't been out since we last saw you. It took me two days to thaw out from that session. See you out there...

Pretty! Love the look of those Con boards. I especially like the SuperUgly or the Ugly surfboard models and was considering purchasing one of those monsters at one time.
