Deep Thoughts by Herb Spitzer

I can remember taping off lines back in the days…

…pinnies 1/16" thick stacked 5 or 6 deep…not a ripple or thicknthin line in the bunch.

…endless taping off boards for cut laps,tints,opagues…not to mention all the taping for airbrushing.

…Then I realized …what a waste of tape it was.Herb

When I was in the Army I photocopied a 150 page book 100 times, collated everything by hand, single sided copying only in those days, took 4 days…

Now that was a real waste of time…!

Hello Cleanlines!

LeeV stopped by on his way to Big Sur yesterday. His car was packed w/ raffle prizes. I haven’t heard much about the raffle, did I miss the list? I sent up multiple matched sets of 1/2" marine plywood twin fins (Clydes Template) for the offer.

Hey Herb, see you up there. Surf is looking promising,

Friday swell 7 ft @ 16-17 secs (10-12 ft faces).

Saturday swell 6 ft @ 14 secs (7.5-8.5 ft faces)

Sunday 9 ft @ 12-13 secs and fading

PS 40% chance of showers on Sunday, last I checked.

Here in the South Bay of LA we just lost someone who was known as a master of the lost art of pinlining- Wayne Miyata. If I’m not mistaken he was also the first person filmed getting a barrel. So think of it this way- maybe knowing how to do pinlines somehow helps you develope tube riding skills. So tape away. Do one (pinline) for Wayne and get one (barrel) for yourself.
