Surfing 10 years, started late in life, grew up snow skiing and boarding, move to the coast wife purchased my first Nev 7 '10 funboard from GC, she was worried i would go crazy not being able to ski anymore. Was hooked after first wave. Life now revolves around surfing and nothing else really. My wife said if i was surfing before we got married.....she wouldn't have married me....hates being woken up at 5am everyday. Over the years i have lost weight and as skills have increased boards have gotten smaller.
