better late than never. toby and i kicked off the river surf season 2017. still feels great to be on the board apart from the crowds at 8am and a 40 chf parking fine from the local police... haha!

ready for sanding

leash and fin plugs are installed and the board is ready for sanding. i hope i'll progress a bit quicker than the last couple of weeks. it would be a great board for the summer river surf.

portugal 2017, done

despite a cold start on saturday and sunday we enjoyed a fantastic week in baleal. i'd tend to say: business as usual. others claim that peniche is one of the most consistent surf areas in europe which i gladly confirm.

gloss coat

6 weeks to go until our departure to portugal. a good reason to start with the gloss coat and update ll's blog. also started think about the fin setup and i might go for my first quad for this little toy.

belated happy new year

belated happy new year to all my readers!

it has been quiet for a while because there has been some addition to our family. however, the nugget project is still progressing. lamination process has been finished. i'll now pre-sand and start with the glossing. if everything goes according to my plan the board should be ready for our sgc trip to portugal in march.
