New board post.

I haven't had a boarding post for ages.
So here it is.
I have just picked up this new board, one of only three in existence made for a competition (which i didn't enter). Its a 6`10" x 20 1/2" x 2 1/2" Fish shape by Jools at Gulf stream in Braunton N.Devon.

A distinctive deck graphic the same as the logo on the drink it promotes. A good swap with a friend who ran the comp.
It goes great, first try at Westward Ho! over the weekend in solid 3-4foot surf. Easy take offs, fast and super loose. I got some great backhand snaps, such a change from the long board.
It's not great at paddling out though, but that's also because of riding the longboard all winter.
I'll be getting this out at any opportunity this winter so expect an update.

Check jims blog for more surf pics from the day. 3rider
