Sunset at My Favorite Break
I know I keep posting pictures of this place. There's just something about the sunsets I see on the stills taken by the cam.
The board search is almost done. The shop put a call out to Slick. If he calls back and can come up with a board for me, I'll get a Slick. I don't think this is promising though. They said he's in Hawaii. I'd heard awhile back that he was going to move to Hawaii. If he's done so, I probably won't see a board from him any time soon. My second choice now is a Stewart. I saw one yesterday, one I hadn't seen in the shop before, that is pretty much what I'm looking for. I'll need to visit it again, spend some time with it, hold it, whisper sweet nothings in its ear, and then make my final decision. My surf buddy from work and I hit up two surf shops at lunch yesterday. I hadn't been in the Becker shop in ages. I'd forgotten how sweet those boards are; I'm sure our dried drool has stained at least three of the boards there. We then ran over to my favorite shop, which is right up the street. That's when someone showed me that Stewart. There wasn't enough time to do more than pick it up, hold it, run my hand down a rail, and leave. However, I was quite taken by that board. I'm not sure why I never considered a Stewart before. It's not like I'm just now learning of this shaper. For some reason, the Stewart boards never appealed to me. But then someone suggested this one (which was in the back of the shop in a spot where I never would have seen it). Again, it's just what I'm looking for. (I did take a closer look at the JC and it was not.)
