This is a true story, the names have not been changed.
I finally met Ben “Chipfish61” on Saturday with my 3 little girls. We had a chat about this and that, felt each others boards, ogled at different shapes etc and went for a surf down at Triggs. 60 guys out not much fun but we spent the time together like we’d known each other for a while.
We got back to his place and he pulls out one of his boards, one that he rebuilt himself from an old Mal AND HE LENT IT TO MY GIRLS, threw in a couple of fins and said, “use this over this summer because I haven’t known anyone that could use this”, it hasn’t even had wax on it.
My girls are over the moon and now think that Ben is their uncle.
Ben, you are the spirit of surfing, good to have met you and look forward to seeing you again soon.
