1. Per Lawless: As with everything in surfboards, you have to think in complete terms of the board and how the whole package works together. It usually doesn’t work out too well if you try and throw one element in without adjusting others accordingly.
You can shape better in boardies, flip flops and an old surf Tee. It’s been researched and proven.

Garage guys should just slow down and do it right. You aren’t a production guy and it isn’t a race.

Why do noobs think that buying another, more expensive board will make them learn faster?
I know a guy who owns three or four different boards and he still cannot turn, at all. When he got his second one, I asked why he bought it and he said he thought the other board wasn’t good enough and it was “holding him back”. He went from a Surftech Soft Top to an NSP.
The reality is that he only gets in the water about ten times in the Summer. That’s what’s “holding him back”.
