Mid season now. Ebayed some used stuff and bought two new toys. A SHINN Luigi 132 x 42 and a Cabrinha SB 12m in the sweeeet blue.
First ride on the Luigi was supper choppy and nuking to almost 35. I found myself mumbling to Luigi in Italian! Popping off the water with the flick of my Achilles. Rolling and landing as soft as a baby's bum. Light as a feather. I gotta figure those footstraps out cause they are like bedroom slippers but just couldnt get them just right. Heel straps maybe?? I put a sticker of Luigi from mariocart on that baby. I think I may have found my Italian boyfriend if I decide to go that way...(not that there's anything wrong with that!)
Too light for the SB the day it arrived. More to follow. CIAO bella.
