Ladies and Gents,
Long time reader, first time poster... be gentle.
I've just bought a board, 7'8" hand shaped minimal (Graeme Bunt if memory serves correctly), to give you a picture i'm 6'2" and about 100kg - yes, I feel more at home on a rugby pitch than a board but I love it.
The questions are;
1. I'm used to riding Bic type boards about 7'10"ish, this one i've bought is a bit narrower, thinner and shorter but shouldn't be too much of a step up for a heffer like me should it?
2. There is a slight knock on one of the rails, circle shaped dent in with one edge looks broken (probably about 3mm long), it doesn't appear to have cracked through but is there anyway of telling? If it needs repairing is it something i can do easily or worth getting someone in a shop to look at it?
Just so you know, i'm heading to Polzeath on Sunday for a week, so sooner the better really!
