So after getting back into surfing 2 years ago after a 10 yr hiatus (kids, wife, major injury) i have become increasingly addicted to buying new surfboards.
What started out as a massive learning curve and realisation of how much things had changed since id hit the water 10 years ago (boards, wetties etc) has now become a full on addiction.
Is there some kind of help group like surfboards anonymous?
My quiver is not large by any means compared to others with only 4 in the rack however if i had kept all purchased other than trade in id have 6. In just 2 years!
Part of it is still dialing in my preferred board size and needing different boards for different conditions, you know how it is, but part of it is just the stoke of buying a new board.
Next thing you know i’ll be ordering customs, but could i wait that long for a board??
Does anybody else suffer this affliction?
Maybe a self help is required.....
