A bit late on this one sorry guys, yes I did had a go and the thing is legit, I talked to the guys at Stacey during the demo day and the concept is that the pin tail act as a centre fin but you get the speed of a twin and it s not BS. Goes so fast but turns heaps better than other twin I had, for small fat wave it s great ! very very flat board. It wasn't over shoulder high when i tried it, more like waist chest so i can t say about the upper range, waves were mellow too, beach break.

I decided to sell 2 3 board in the quiver to keep only 2, thinking surfing 2 boards often will help my surfing more than surfing 4 5 as an interm surfer.

My idea is to keep my 5'8 fling for small / shit / fat days and to have another one that you can consider an all rounder (6 1 or 6'2 at 33L). Saying this I m interested in a daily driver that has a good upper range, you know when suddenly on an average 3 foot day you get some good random bigger/ steeper sets where you can get the waves of the day or just for good pumping days. Over 5-6 foot (which is double over head for me) i usually dont surf anyway, i m not a charger. I need a board which help me getting in earlier to build more confidence when it s bigger to avoid late take off or being sucked in. Obviously positioning is key and i need to improve on that but equipment matters.

What boards out there would get into that category ?

I surf around Sydney northern beach if that can help.

Aloha

Okay, say you're traveling all over the world and surfing. You can only bring 3 boards.

5'7" 32L Stamps Banjo Twin Fish - Grovels well but also works in all sorts of different fun sized waves. Gets in early and makes long sections with ease. One of my favorite boards ever. Easy choice.

6'3" 30L Pyzel Shadow - I have a handful of other squash tail thrusters that could fill this position but this one happens to be my current favorite. When the waves are good quality or at least punchy from waist to DOH or so this is the board I'd ride. If this thread was about a one board travel quiver this board would be in the running.

6'10" 38L Rusty Blackbird - This one is still on order but I'm thinking/hoping it covers the upper end. I have a 7'2" Arakawa RP but it doesn't fit in my 7 foot triple board bag and for how big of a board it is it doesn't actually catch waves that well with such a narrow, rockered out nose.

Most ineffective rule to make dirt bikes run a whip / flag there. Snaps off constantly and is never tall enough to make anything truly safer.

My buddy lives 5 minutes from the entrance to the beach. It was neat to ride it once but I’m not psyched to go back.

Socialism only really exists in Albania, Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela. I doubt it's coming here.

And $100B is nothing. More than that goes back and forth across the oceans every day.

History 101:

Jews claim Palestine was the biblical Canaan given to them by God, so they took it over back in the Bronze Age. That worked out for a while, but they were driven out by the Romans in 79 ACE, and have been living in diaspora ever since. For reasons I don't understand they have basically been shit on by just about everybody, but they nevertheless prospered. Then the Holocaust happened which was one of the worst genocides ever, and the whole world felt sorry for the Jews, so except for the Muslim countries, they voted to give them a little chunk of the British Empire called "The Palestinian Mandate" to establish a Jewish homeland. The Brits were of course happy to get rid of this hellhole, which was nothing but trouble. A lot of Jews moved there and established Israel, and they have been at war with most of their neighbors ever since, who hate the whole idea with a passion and can't get over it.

Those neighbors hate Israel and want to wipe it off the map, but Israel is a bunch of badass motherfuckers and can't be beat militarily. But they have a weak point: They treat their Arab citizens like shit, and basically do everything they can to taunt the Palestinians, who of course launch rockets and send in suicide bombers and shit, always hoping for a giant bloodbath of a war where they all get slaughtered but will show the world how evil Israel is. So the whole place is one giant hate-fest.

Along comes people like Rashida and the BDS movement and a bunch of dumb-ass college kids who of course side with the poor innocent Palestinians (who cares that they also treat their own people like shit), and call out Israel as a bunch of assholes, never mind they have the highest level of freedoms and wealth and self-determination and liberty in the whole Middle East. Now Netanyahu (the Jewish Trump) pours gasoline on the fire every chance he gets by building a huge wall and lots of settlements, which of course starts the whole cycle all over again.

I think the political elites on all sides don't really want a lasting peace. Demogogues need boogey-men. Netanyahu is a dick, so is Abbas. Hamas is a bunch of homocidal psychopaths, as is Hezbollah, ISIS, etc. And of course Trump.

Death.

Being rounded up into an infantry line. Side by side. And being marched into a canon redoubt. We are kind of lucky to devise or own deaths these days.

I wouldn't say they develop differently, but there are observed differences in an athletes heart than that of a non athlete. Degrees of left ventricular hypertrophy are common in athletes and can differ slightly in athletes of different sports, like a runners heart vs a powerlifters. Left ventricular hypertrophy also occurs in people with hypertension but this is easily distinguished with other easy and available testing methods.

Pain. All of this stuff about opiates.

After my lung surgery I had family members that visited me. Had a long conversation. I don't even remember it but they do.


Opiates. When I had my colon surgery I got allergic to them. Broke out in a huge rash, morphine drip. Press the button. Never never land. Remember this hottie nurse at UCSF spreading the lotion across my ravaged body. Turned out she was from Watsonville and had my mom as her first grade teacher.

Pain is an experience that reflects the perception of threat.

Pain is one of our many survival mechanisms, but it does not reliably reflect the status of our tissues. As with so many things, context is important. Stimuli that may not be painful in some contexts might be quite unpleasant in other situations where we feel threatened. For example, a friend punching you in the arm while you are joking around is not nearly as painful as that same punch from someone who is angry or being aggressive towards you. The same physical insult results in a different experience based on many biological, psychological, and social contextual factors.

Our thoughts and expectations are important in managing pain and injury. The more threatened we feel and the more convinced we are that something is “wrong” that needs to be “fixed” the more debilitating painful experiences can be. While there are many variables we cannot control, our learned responses to pain and injury are things we can alter. Reminding ourselves that most tissue injuries heal within days to weeks and doing things to facilitate that process can be helpful. Catastrophizing–amplifying the negative aspects of our experiences and engaging in worst-case thinking–can exacerbate painful experiences. Pain is not just in your head. Nor is it just in your tissues. The interactions that result in the emergence of pain are enormously complex. Working to approach our pain with positivity and a confidence that the situation can improve is important. We can experience substantial discomfort in the absence of tissue pathology, and this understanding can be useful as we adapt and self-manage our injuries.
