Is Nicool stoked right there or what???? She didn't want to grab him, so I had to try and hold it out and take the pic. So, as you can guess from the fishing pic, it's been FLAT!! Well, we had a small run of mediocre surf so some would argue with me, but mostly flat. I've been fishing. Yesterday I jumped my first tarpon out of the "new" boat. Jumped, not landed, but I'll claim it. I'll get one tomorrow!! When I finally found the fish Capt. Greenie was already out there and hooked up! Go Greenie. I'm so stoked for Tommy and Greenie, busting into the fishing guide scene up here. As for boards, there is some pretty good Poly foam showing up now, so anybody who's been hesitant to try the Epoxies (you're blowing it, but..) there's "regular" foam now that's pretty good, if not better than the Clark. I'm shaping some today. As for designs, I've officially jumped on the quad bandwagon, and have to brag that mine rides pretty friggin' good!! You'll have to try one. Either in the retro fish style, or the high performance "Stretch" style. I've basically widened the tail on the Wizard, and can do either a swallow or bat tail, both ride good. What else?? We've been busting our @#$ to get out of some of the excess space I rented, expecting the foam apocalypse that never came. I'm kinda stoked to reconfigure the shop, at least it's good for a thorough spring cleaning (that's where those were!?!?!)....School's back in for Nicool, so I'm up again. I really enjoyed just beign lazy all summer, waking up late and having coffee with our "Saved by the Bell" morning re-runs. Time to tighten the screws in time for Hurricane Season, up by 6:30, replace coffee with redbull and get 'er done.
