I love the...

RE: Quiver update: Retros vs Huckers for B&F

The screws that came with the loop are indeed shorter than the footstrap screws but, they are longer than the depth of the holes in the bottom of the board. Are the screws supposed to penetrate the...

RE: Starsurfer holes on bottom

Ellen,

That's a great idea. With that said, I am absolutley petrified to put screws in the bottom of a board. It just doesn't seem right. Does the leash work well if it is screwed into the...

RE: kid board

Ellen,

Given our old, but small arsenal of other boards, do you agree that the Start could be a good family addition? I really like the idea of being able to sail with them on the board and I...
