Surfing in Holland?

Well it so happens the North Sea provides plenty of fetch and range

to create surf on Hollands beaches. This link will provide forecasts etc,

Heavy Dutch winter swells ripped the leash and tail

straight out of this Matt Adams Surfboard.

surfer joke

A man was stranded on a desert island for 10 years. 

One day a beautiful girl swims to shore in a wet suit. 

Man: “Hi! Am I ever happy to see you.”! 
Girl: “Hi! It seems like you’ve been here along time. How long has it been since you’ve had a cigarette?”

Man: “It’s been ten years!” 
With this information the girl unzips a slot on the arm of her wet suit and gives the man cigarette. 

Man: “Oh thank you so much!” 
Girl: “So tell me how long its been since you had a drink?” 

Man: “It’s been ten years” 
The girl unzips a little longer zipper on her wet suit and comes out with a flask of whiskey and gives the man a drink. 

Man: “Oh. Thank you so much. You are like a miracle”! 
Finally the girl starts to unzip the front of her wet suit and asks the man leadingly, “So tell me then, have you been bored??” 

The man looked at her and said excitedly: “Oh, my God, don’t tell me you’ve got a surfboard in there too??”

Ben’s Adams Retro Fish surfboard in for replacement of

two FCS fin plugs and multiple small dings.

A close up of the removed fin plug holes,

the fish was left to bask in the sun to dry out any moisture from its core.

FCS fin plug install

Can you see the light?

An example of FCS fin plug installation guidelines being followed,

it amazes me how some new boards don’t have their fin plugs

installed correctly or symmetrically.

I was taught to follow the saying..

“Measure twice cut once”

Mother’s Day

 Hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day.

I spent the afternoon walking on Mudeford Beach with my family, I feel so blessed to live in Dorset being able to experience the changing seasons living by the coast.

You can just make out The Isle of Wight.

 The result of surfing our local reefs,

Jurassic coastline power.

Ben from The Wessex Surf Club 

 brought it to me for surgery.

All completed with the stringer reinforced + new leash plug and a

glass job that is a third stronger than the original,

4+4oz top 4oz original glassing to the tail

now 6+6oz top 6oz bottom.

Also Ben’s a goofy foot hence the leash plug positioning with in turn

maintains the strength in the rear tail area.
