  1. Hey man back in the mid 1970's we had a bud who was so inept he was also unable to get to his feet to ride waves :D and I remember having real fun riding his 5ft plus kneeboards stand up! They were loose and fast when ridden that way and you could really get em up on a rail and chuck out the biggest rooster tails on a round-house, only neg was they didn't paddle and I remember giving up and staying out when we were cruised by a shark at Cape Byron one bleak Autumn arvo :0 ah the days, the days ^_^
