I was wondering if anyone else has similar issues to me? At the end of a days sailing my two piece mast falls apart. I find that when I leave my vent plug alone for years on end that it doesn't allow the interior of my board to get wet. I find the grip on my board quite abrasive and functional when I sail, but it does rub on my new boardies when I carry it up the beach. I find my blxxdy footstraps don't twist and sit where I screwed them in. I find that I bought a mast that was recommended by the sail manufacturer and when I downhauled it enough my sail went a bit floppy and sailed really well. I find that I shove the board wet and salty into the garage and it still works a month later. I find just wearing boardies and a rash vest and harness quite comfortable. I find the deck on my boards is really rigid and makes a "tink tink" sound when I tap it with a knuckle, (should I whack it with my mast?)..Just wondering if anyone else has these issues? What can I do? Do you have a similar issue? Should I fxxk around with shxt more? Thanks
