Kanaha board depot (the trash bin)

I pick up all kind of boards out of the trash at Kanaha. I fix them and sometimes I keep them, sometimes I put them back there. Why do I do that? Because I like the game of guessing how the board will be in the water. It helps my knowledge of the shapes. And, believe me, sometimes I find some boards that are quite unusual! Check this one, for example. I sealed a few dings, put footstreps and a fin and... voila', back in the water the day after I picked it up. Check that tail! What the hell is that plastic flap for?? Post a comment if you know it...


This is the test in the water. The result is: a board for really flat conditions and super light wind. Good, I just bought a 6.5...


Kuau beach. One day I'll be the mayor.


The spectators seem to be wondering:"Where the hell is he going with that board?"


Ok, the test was successful. Let's walk back home. I usually walk that narrow corridor with board AND sail on my head... and, of course, it's always quite windy!

I see you're sporting a new wet-look hair do-very fetching. Or is it your new navigational 'comb-over' wind device?!

I think the plastic flap is a fountain. Great story!
