This is my little tale of a Winter's Woe!!
I don't know if anyone's ever heard of the 'HandiRack' inflatable roofrack?
It's a great invention that allows poor people like myself to transport their boards!!
Unfortunately it has a little design flaw - When it rains, it soaks the inside of your car!!
Due to this, my last surfing trip of last year (November) ended badly. We had just got all the boards on the roof and were heading for home when the heaven's opened. The resulting flood into the car caused us to re-evaluate our situation.
Anyway my friend and I ended up having to leave our boards in Bournemouth with a friend and since then a serious of bizzare misfortunes have prevented us from getting them back.
Anyway - my friend from Bournemouth is coming up this weekend and I will get my baby back at last.
Time for the ceremonial stripping of the old wax and the reapplying ready for the next session!!
