Brittany Spears........

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

Here we go, all good and ready to glass.....

6' 6" x 21 1/2 x 2 3/4, lots of foam and will be a single only, not a 2+1.......very happy with the result, a bit rusty with the planer but pleased with the result...... :-D

Hey. I'm just finding the "http://" link to the photo and putting that inside the [img]your%20picture[/img] brackets. I've not found a way around the 'forum attachment quota' problem that seems to be limiting uploaded pictures if that's what you think.

For some websites, like FB & Flickr, they make it hard to find out what the "http://" link is. Usually you can just rightclick on the picture, click 'copy' and then 'paste' it into the address bar (where you type web addresses in) and that will then open the link and display only the picture itself. I use Safari on a Mac and that lets me just drag the photo into the address bar rather than faff around with copy&paste (plus Macs don't have a right mouse button). Again this opens a new webpage with just the photo on.

Eg. copy and paste this into the address bar - http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5456/9223 ... 5661_z.jpg

For more problematic websites like Flickr I use the drop down menu 'View' in Safari and click on 'view source code'. This brings up the html for the whole webpage. From there I press 'CMD+F' (or 'control+F' on PCs I think) for the 'find' function and just type ".jpg" to scan through the files for pictures on that webpage. Sometimes there are loads so a bit of trial and error is needed. Some websites have thumbnail pics as well so it can also be good to 'find' for 'fullsize' as this is sometimes used in the picture file name.

I'm sure most internet browsers have a function where you can view the current webpage as html and it's not something that can only be done with Safari.

Hope that helps and is not too patronisingly put and actually makes sense.

Not patronising at all Poo, thanks. I need to experiment more.

I find it frustrating trying to load a pic and having to do a dozen clicks only to end up with a link and not a nice tidy photo.......... :evil: I will not be beaten.

Anyhoos, off to the garage, glassing the deck before the mercury rises............... :-D

Yes, a great range of shapes on there. Bit of a faff printing them out on A4 and taping them together.

Thanks Splinter, only had it out in small rubbish so far, so not really able to give a good ride report yet. It certainly paddled very easily with all that foam and felt loose, need something with a bit of umpfff to really test it.

Waiting for a fin from Mr Griff so hoping that will give a bit of pep to it also..........................watch this space.
