After I'd put all of the boards away I realized I forgot to include my mat in the picture. That was made by Paul Gross too.
I took this picture to use for motivation during my rehab. Right now, all of the boards are in the garage. One may get to see the light of day if I surf tomorrow. Then it will return to hibernation with the rest of the quiver.
Four of the boards bear my name on the stringer. Those same four boards were also made by folks who blog.
Yes, I know there are a lot of longboards. They are my weapon of choice most of the time. I love the glide. I love to find trim. When I want to make attempts to tackle bigger waves for which longboards are unsuited, I turn to the boards in the seven foot range.
I don't ride a shortboard. I never will ride a shortboard. I am 45 years old and female. What am I going to do with a shortboard other than sell it on Craigslist? Don't hate. Don't judge. Just surf.
