MidSummer New York = Longboards and Sidebends

Big topic for imagination around here has always been bodysurfing. No sooner than we found out we were all surfers occupying the same Manhattan office space than we started talking about the necessary joys of a good bodywomp. Danny Hess has been around these parts lately, so we've been ogling his wares, and Richard King hasn't been able to shut up about shaping a handplane in his NJ backyard shop (not that we want him to.) He reckons he'll fashion one after the Brownfish. The preferred method for us uncrafties is to take spongey flip flop with the nylon straps and sand down the bottom for a bevel. All to say: get in the water!
