Re: New summer Groveler

Thomas is there an advantage with heavier boards related to inertia ??
Weight gaining speed and carrying it possibly through a longer time period through the wave

Re: New summer Groveler

Wow look at that Premier motorcycle helmet holding that new pad down
The helmet comes right from my neck of the woods-- they are the best
Lightest and you should try their Dyneema fiber products as well
\Congrats for the pad and the helmet
