hanging in Matts man cave....


Big thanks this week to Matt, the gulfstream glasser for patiently helping me glass my mini simmons. Once again, it's not as easy as it looks, especially when there are multiple tints involved. I don't think i messed it up too badly and it is starting to actually look like a proper board! ( " Literally" eh matt?!)

 Fin wise i think we are going with 7 1/2 inch base glass on keels. More of a keel fish shape than a half moon so similar to those on the bar of soap and the bing mini sim but not as long in the base as the TW soap ones.

Hopefully it's going to be finished for my trip to France in a couple of weeks time!!


Small glassy logging is the order of the day today, the only question is which spot to haul my heavy single fin to!

Hi CP, I've also just finished up a simthing which I'm taking to France in a few weeks, just wondered though which log you think would be best suited to La Torch: Riddler, 777 or a Pig?
Obviously I wont be able to take all 3 and I have never been before so I would appreciate your opinion.
Thanks
Michael

La torche is a fairly steep beach break so whatever you favor in that. I had some fun small waves on my jai lee there which is a pig influenced log. The sim will go even when it's small I should think as there's plenty of push to it even at waist high.

I love the project cars and the man cave. I just built a man cave in an old shed I had in my backyard and decorated it with automotive memorabilia. I even went as far as to have custom street signs made to hang up on the walls. Does the room get really hot in the summer? Mine can get unbearable, I've tried to put an air conditioner in but there are no insulation in the walls, so it doesn't work very well.
