I agree with GG.
A surfboard needs a pointy nose like a fish needs a bicycle.
Nothin' but fashion really.
Mats are bitchen.
by the way ,
did anyone catch the irony of
the name of the place , in the photo where george is riding his mat
..... classic !!
regarding more rounded off noses... yes, i agree , having been clocked in the head by a nose , as well as the ill-fated hicksy 'moonrocket's wing , on another occassion, giving me three stitches on my birthday at lanno a few years back
cheers and keep surfing [or wear a helmet]
