    Electric Tripping

    I read an article on the inter webs a few months ago. Thieves are targeting the more remote charging stations, you pull low on juice, hook up your car. They roll up and rob you, make a getaway in their internal combustion conveyance.

    Dune

    If you are interested in Dune, there's a documentary that came out about 10 years ago called "Jodorowsky's Dune". Alejandro Jodorowsky is a cult film maker of the most insane kind.

    Traction Pad Affecting Magic of New Boar?

    As a shaper, it is funny when you get customer feedback that "The board just feels off, or boggy". Only to find out the traction pad is about 6" above leash plug. Placement matters.

    Some more board pron for Wassel

    Wassel is 5'8", 200 lbs. And yes, it is a WRV logo. WRV is his board sponsor, they pay for his boards, but he can work with any shaper he wishes. I just have to display the WRV logo prominently on his boards.

    You glass them as you would a reg board. Varial doesn't recommend mixing cloth weights, in other words, if you're going 4 oz. go 4oz. all the way around. f you're going 6 oz, go 6oz all the way around. We typically go double 4 deck, single 4 bottom. If they want it a bit stronger, double 6...

    Random Board thread # 1

    One thing I've discovered is if you're a lighter guy (up to around 150 or so) It sometimes helps to drop down 1/16" in thickness. This will facilitate the flex properties.....when I first started making Varials, i did a few for lighter guys at their "regular" dims, and the blanks seemed too...
