15st 7lbs last check mate, might be technique fail but just cannae get that extra bit right onto the nose except for once when I got there by mistake but it was a nice head high left and we don't get many of them up here!
The Spoon is a really nice board though, I love the way it rides and it was one of the last boards Mark made last year. Bit of a wall hanger really but a board is made to be ridden I reckon. I used to have a 9'6 but it was heavily rockered and had minimal spoon under the nose so that wouldn't nose ride, I can get much closer to it on this thing but whenever I think I am set up just right and I go forwards the bloody thing just nose dives, not sure if I am nto getting the tail locked in right or what but it is doing my head in!
I thought maybe something a bit longer and heavier might do the trick better but who knows, I have watched so many longboarding DVDs and tried to emulate what I see but I am certainly not skinny Al Knost! I was watching more of CJ Nelson as he seems to have a less "twitchy" style than Al but can't seem to get the same successes.
