Re: Greetings from the Island thats not an Island.

"it was like riding a longboard boogie board " I like this comparison. The great feeling of trimming down the line, drawing a clean line, but prone. But yet,6', isn't it a bit too long ? This is the one I'm on in the avatar. It's 5'5" X 15.5" and I am planning on building a 6 fo...

No.
Only those shitty ones made from really cheap EPS like the ones Krusher mentioned.
