Rain, Rain . . .

go away—before I beat you with a damn stick! Stop it already! Or if you're going to make an appearance, come early in the week. That way I can still get in the water over the weekend.

Hey, who wants to see an $8000 surfboard? Yep, that's three zeroes after the eight. I happened upon the board in an upscale furniture store in Culver City. Amazingly enough, my camera was in my purse and I was able to get a few shots of this masterpiece. If you want to see it, raise your hand.

I've got my eye on another Slick. I think I alluded to this a few weeks ago. After reading the latest Longboard, I thought I should come to my senses and consider another board. Off I headed to Just Longboards. I looked at the Slick I've been pining after and then looked around for something else I might want (including a fish or an egg). When all was said and done, the only board that called to me was the Slick. My instinct, which is always right, tells me to get it even though I'm already the proud owner of one Slick. There's something about his boards. I did happen upon a Slick performance board. Part of me thinks I should consider that. I didn't particularly like the 2+1 set-up I had on a previous board. I'm more than happy with the performance of my single fin Slick. I feel kind of dumb thinking about getting another one. But then I consider the fact that my funboard is a thruster; when I feel the need for a smaller (yeah, I know 8'6' is anything but small) and more maneuverable board, I surf the funboard. I don't like all of that wiggling around when I'm on a longboard. I think I've now shown myself why I might as well get another single fin and forget the performance board. It's funny. I know there's a retro movement in surfing. I'm not part of it though. Single fins simply suit my style. And the Slicks surf loose enough to feel like tri-fin boards. I don't know when I'll get it. Now that I'm working steadily, I'm trying to make a lot of bills disappear. I'm hoping our tax refund, however much it is, will help me make this—the new board—happen. Once it does, I'll finally take a decent picture of my quiver.
