What Influence?

Have seen shapes like this at least 30 years ago and these are being made today as surfboards and considered fresh . Biggest one is 6 foot . And I won't mention fish!

The morning started off slowly, the temp was down to 3 degrees and the car was warning me of  potential black ice on the road (secret harbour)?....the swell was tiny the day before but a new swell was forecast......on arrival a nice little rip bank had a 1 foot left peeling along slowly....the comp was on......waves were a bit hit and miss and the heats were tight....only half a point tight...a bit off luck to snag a wave was required always is the case

as the morning warmed up so did the waves...they doubled in size and now it was 2 foot, some head dips turned into barrels and the odd turn started to happen....waves weren't great but it was fun

as the onshore wafted in, then back out again we finally made it to the finals...a few nice waves came and everyone got there the end of the day a big congratulations to Greg Budgen on winning the 2013 INDIANA KNEERIDERS CUP....well done Budgie

a huge thanks to everyone for turning up...and to Griz for the bbq afterwards, a perfect finish to a great day.
