Re: Everybody wants to

For some recovering will take a lifetime - it's hard to anticipate the effects of natural disasters until you are confronted by one.

Sooner or later the ocean will call.

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

18-20" is ok. The no rocker issue - some rocker helps but the boards flex is an aspect. I have a fibreglass board with no rocker and it nosedives once the wave gets hollow. Donostia - I've been there 4 times but never surfed there. That footage shows a variety of waves. The bodyboarder's wave w...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Ok, if I understand you correctly, you are saying you needed to glass the board, because the wood is too weak. It is a light wood but shouldn't be too soft (you shouldn't be able to squeeze it and make a dent). Try the board - you'll soon know if it works or not. If it doesn't paddle too well, it ma...
