Fragility -- 7/17/04
Date: July 17, 2004
Words: Went out to semi-secret spot with Rich, Bud and Makani. Wasn't very good. Kind of long waits followed by a set with lots of waves. Wasn't really working at the spot--maybe too windy (ie stormy).
Tried out my new longboard from Makani for the first time. Worked like a charm. However, found out later that I creased it in two places and put a dent in the bottom. Damn!
I did feel a bit apprehensive about using the board in the first place because it felt so fragile. Guess my fears were realized. Part of the learning process I guess to see what works and what doesn't for me. Next time I'll put a thicker glass on the deck.
Aloha from Paradise,
