I took a break from the surf on Sunday in favor of BBQing and getting some other projects knocked out. I got the prone foilboard templates cut out and sanded.
And then I proceeded to get the blank(s) templated and cut out.
Also went to our friendly neighborhood Lowes and grabbed a bunch of lumber to make some plant benches La has been asking for. I'll also build a new shaping rack (to shape these short foil boards).
As I am writing this entry on Sunday, Marlon and I did go on a dawn patrol this morning - 1.7' tide with a chest high swell pushing in - good fun!!! I had several long rides - one was tracking along with a wave standing up and just about to pitch a lip. Another with banking turns back and forth between sections. A couple of waves I popped up but my feet didn't feel like they were in the right place - I rode out the wave anyways and just compensated with weight shifts. At the risk of sounding cocky - this is second nature now. I even had a few green water takeoffs - steeper than I prefer, but too much fun!
