A few and a few.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

Climbing shoes? or any shoes.

Pair climbing shoes - £80? one pair a year?

Non climbing - £30-50 max? Wear them till they are fooked.

Tis the dream board, but way out of my budget.

I bought the Squire as it was a shape I'd always fancied trying, and it's great. But I just want a standard log. Got the Sam, that's beautiful to ride and I've been up front. Just want a noserider. Got a buyer for the Squire. Would love to keep it, but it would not be used most likely when we finally get our move done and dusted.

The end.

To answer the question though, last twelve months, bought 5. Sold the ones that didn't suit. Try as many as you can.

So does anybody dare ask the "And how often have you surfed in the last twelve months?" question....

Is that important? Not much. Various reasons. Some standard, some not so and not up for discussion.

Don't really get where this thread is heading.. Is there some sort of unwritten rules regarding buying and trying different boards before keeping or selling on..

Flacky.. a mate has a beauty of a black and white noserider, triple stringer, volan deck patch and rails.. its a nice board and he'll probably let it go for a reasonable price as he's not surfing much if at all these days.. let me know if you're interested :) ears

True, provided you aren't losing too much from buy to sell.

Could be yeah, Ideally not looking for a heavy weight. They're great at what the do, but after going on a scaled down Don a while back and finding it just as easy to turn, trim, paddle and nose ride I don't think all the weight or length is needed.

I think I've got something lined up. But let me know what he says anyway.

I'm very shrewd mr. I've tried the board's I've wanted to try, got on with some, not with others.

I do exactly the same as flacky, buy boards, surf them a few times and sell them on. I've also worked out the cost, and I reckon I've lost about £80 in the last year doing it. Pretty reasonable for trying 6 different boards I reckon! I the past I've sold them for a little more than I've paid. It all works out about even, that's the beauty of second hand boards.

Pissed around on ebay over something I was selling, so currently waiting on him. Think I've got something lined up anyway. Cheers.

I'm gonna just hang on til I find a swap for the Squire or some extra dosh appears.

Totally off subject here. On the Webber how far up from the tail is your fin box.

I have a performer but the fin box seems to be way too far forward.
