4 part series on surf splendor podcast. Just finished first one and really enjoyed it. I've enjoyed most of the podcasts but Parmie is pretty damn informative and easy to listen to.

Bump. Too much overseas discussion. Listen to these podcasts instead.

These podcasts will be brutal for wait times on a Parmy handshape.

I dig 'em and enjoy the insight, but it does come across as though Dave Parmenter thinks the only person who knows anything about boards is...Dave Parmenter.

i think there is some truth there lol.

he does give credit where credit is due and all his descriptions of the design when executed are spot on. i own 5 parmys btw. will be ordering more.

and no, none are for sale so stop asking me. pay ur money and wait the year to get one!

Loved the first episode on blanks, cool to hear the back story. I was surprised to hear how far the blank manufacturers will go to get you the "rocker" you desire even allowing a kink to leave the factory.

I enjoyed all three. I learned a lot. Shame, this thread should be 5 pages but we'd rather talk about FW.

The sanding discussion in the third episode was also interesting. I enjoyed Dave's story about ordering his rusty's with a hard edge nose to tail and then taking sand paper in the lineup and adjusting the edge while he surfed.

What was up with Dave Scales including another interview during the middle of episode three with Parmenter? Not sure I understood the thought process there.

Are you talking about the third interview with the glasser or the second interview?
