Re: Surfboard size

tautologies is spot on!

Re: The curse of new gear.

That's usually the case for me but today I was able to go from the surf shop to the beach to try out my new board. :D However I did have to wait 4 weeks for it to get shaped and glassed.

Re: kiteboarding bootie suggestions

I've sprayed my feet with Flex Seal Rubber Sealant a few times in the past. It only last a couple of weeks but it works great! Only problem is it looks a bit funky when wearing flip flops. :D

Re: Harness life expectancy?

I'm one of those bigger blokes that rides big kites and enjoys big air. My harness is from 2008 and I have had to replace the straps on it twice but the harness and spreader pad are still in decent shape.
