'What's the board like?'
Slight spot of artistic licence there but you get the gist - never been so keen to get a board.
Santa John turns up with more boards - we chat for a while and I PUT THE BOARD IN MY VAN, Oh yeah it fits without popping the front screen out!!! Done that before, and drive back home racking my brains for some sheltered little spot for a test run.
I wax the hull, fit the fins and leash and wipe all the fresh drool off and gloat for a while.
You can just about see the change in the deck grip area where the Diamond 'Target Zone' is for your feet.
