 HORROR  – “WHAT LIES BENEATH “

I believe in safety first, the grey painted patch didn’t look right on close inspection –

slightly raised areas which had a spongy feeling when pressed,  the above photos say it all.

This SUP (stand up paddleboard is in good hands and will be given a new leash of life.

Enjoy your LOST ROCKET Deano.

Professional Quality Surfboard Repairs In Bournemouth Dorset UK

By Jeff  The DING MAN

Directed by Craig Griffin, Uncharted Waters is a feature length documentary about legendary Australian surfer Wayne Lynch. It traces his upbringing in the seaside town of Lorne on Victoria’s south western coast and his turbulent experiences as a ‘conscientious objector’ on the run from conscription and the Vietnam War. Ultimately, it is about an extremely gifted individual with an intense connection to the Southern Ocean, whose approach to surfing has been a spiritual journey often putting him at odds with the surfing subculture and society in general.
Premiere tour from May to July 2013 in the U.S., Europe and Australia. Dates and locations coming soon at patagonia.com/surfblog.
