Ok, we live about 2.5 miles from the beach, pier, downtown and harbor here in Oceanside, CA, and we don’t get down there enough. We have a sweet bike path that goes by the riverbed. I bought my wife an electric bike, and the vision is that my son and I can cruise down on boards and my wife the bike, and spend a ton more time down on the beach. I had a lot of fun with low-end board buys, but they didn’t have the range to get me back. It was enough fun to whet my appetite, though.
Tons of research (thanks to the guys here), and finally decided on a DIYEboard.com kit. Mostly just looking for range. Slow carving listening to tunes is where I am at.
I know this is not a full build, but hoping it can be something not super intimidating for my son and myself to build something together. I also got my neighbor one, so he can cruise down with us as well.
So, the kits are on order. We’re researching decks, dreaming, and thinking about customizations while we wait.
Oh, forgot to mention : F-S-N is for father-son-neighbor.
