Quiver!



Two of those boards have yet to be surfed. And wouldn't you know I still have eyes for other boards? Don't let me win the lottery! I'll have a room just for the surfboards. Truthfully, I think I'd have 10 boards if I could. At this point, three is about all our little bit of space and my meager paycheck can handle. But don't think I'm not considering buying another one. However, when I look at the picture, I'm not sure what I would get. I can't see myself on anything shorter than the Channel Islands board. And I don't see why I need another nine foot plus longboard. So, what would I get?

Even I, with my lack of willpower and curiosity about every board I see, don't want that many boards.

You need to take your Channel Island to El Porto and give it a spin. How thick is it?

Quiver looks good to me! Since you have that shorter board thrown in, which indicates it's not all about cross-stepping :) , maybe go 6-12 inches smaller on a longboard, lighter, thinner, more for tossing around like the shortboard, but on a lonboard! Know what I mean? Kind of a 'best of both worlds' board.

The Tyler is a custom board. The others were bought right off the rack. I sold a board in order to buy the Channel Islands. But the Chris Slick was an impulse by. The bill has arrived . . . and I don't have the money to pay it right now. Doh!

Puttzle beat me to the punch! I was going to suggest something like the board I ride; a 9' trifin modelled on the Wingnut template, fast and loose and perfect for head-high surf. (Flip side: not so good for anything smaller, which is why I'm getting a big-ass noserider for the summer.)

Perty. Oh, and will wax my board? You always get such perfect and even beads on it. I just took the wax off my Cooperfish (a beautiful wax job I inherited from the former owner) when I was repairing some glass shatters on the rail. I shoulda never done that!

Because now I have this horrible slap-dash wax job on the deck. It does the trick, but boy is it unsightly!

A custom Tyler is enough to make anyone jealous....

How to you get the wax to bead up like that on your boards?

With respect to beads of wax, you simply take your time and use a very light touch. I also never apply wax in circles. You apply it in straight lines (north and south for awhile, then west and east for awhile). Eventually, you end up with beads.
