Found a flow state on the midlength today and had my best yet on this new board. Had a hunch conditions would warrant with the big HT mid day and 9 second Springish wind swell. CH to HH with some push, but still kinda fat. Was able to link multiple sections together with that built in glide off a rip bowl left. Board is supper responsive, put it on a rail, even had a couple swooping roundies, and went great backside on an open face. Much better than previous sessions so far..... having fun with 2+1. Wouldn't of had half as much fun on my fish. Chilly in the shade toasty in the sun kinda fall morning. Waters still on the warm side and was clear, green, and filled with jellyfish.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

7'1" length. I will check Tex. Left the rest up to the Art. More volume than I would of requested, but seems to be in the right places.

Tex-- if you quit with naming my favorite fishin' holes, I'll let you test drive my 7'1 murdey mid so you can see how you like the design.

What, no LP pulse coming through? Buoys seemed to be reading differently based on location, but don't think we were that far apart... Found a spot making sense of it, validated by some friendly locs. That meant less waves for me, but appreciated what I got. Utility shortbread was getting speed wobbles-- wish I brought something with a round pin. Swapped between that and a log I can trust to make the drop; only problem was what to do once on the wave because it was go fast or get clamped-- evidenced by a boy-o with his forehead split, spilling blood all over his Merrick. Gnarly.

Leftover pulse in the water early AM; sheet glass with light offshores. A brief spot check would deter most, however, every 10-15, some punch HH sets would come through. Again, speed was key, but the face held and some lengthy rides were possible. Got gummed up just as the calvary arrived. Good while it blasted.

Yah there was a little LP pulsing for sure! Think it was 2 or 3 when I looked at the breakdown. Was pulsing some good sets amongst the 9 second wind swell reverb and prob the long ones that made the sesh. Would of been a lot punchier on a lower tide, but that was a big one at 7+. Although I did peep a few spots I didn't have time to really look around, had a hunch about something else, but I couldn't chance it. Squeezed one in on a long lunch break and the Pref-Egg saved the day! 8) Figured there'd be some leftovers. Conditions looks like butter this am. Good work. 2 or 3 20'ers out the back. The feminine child flexing early?

For the record all of mine were DIY and from my recollection maybe one turned out alright. Tom Scott would be the man for the job I bet. Otherwise maybe get in line with El Brodo and one of his henchmen may get it right?

Is low tide ding repair still on the scene? Willy came through on some complex repairs.

One of Brad's guys once tried to hustle me in a cl trade. Nothing shady-- just tried to pawn off a useless board for my considerably less useless board. Was hoping he'd offer up an alt shape, but no dice.

Willy gave up repairs when Murdey gave up his shaping bay.

Tom Scott fixed a fin box I blew out this summer, over-amping and trying too hard...

Anyway, with fin boxes make sure the ding guy gets the toe in/ cant angles right. Best to give them some fins so they can match the angles with the fin on the other side of the board.
