You tell him Spencer....

You're not the first that I have had to ask to keep the images smaller. You're right, they do look good full size and I wish we had someone here taking photos all the time.... It needs a whole heap of shots for me to find one that make me look good! Not everyone has broadband though so vieiwing large files can be a problem for them. It also puts up my hosting costs as it uses up quite a lot of bandwidth.... AND, it means we can see the whole photo on screen without having to scroll.



Dinghy sailor boots???... They are all the rage aren't they!?

Al.

OK, OK...so yours is bigger than mine!!.... Although I actually have a dual monitor set-up a 15" widescreen LCD and a 17" CRT which gives me 2560x864 pixels....

Paul
Where did you get the Vitsea Bit from?
I found a quick way to resize a pic for forum use is to email to your self, as this reduces the size, saves messing round with photoshop etc...thats better broadband & bigger monitor at home that is a seriously good pic!

Are you sure e-mailing it reduces the size??? It shouldn't... Unless you have something set up specifically to do that for you.

You're right about this being a seriously good photo though... I don't think we could make any of the Borth locals look that good even with a hotshot photographer though!

Ahhh, sorry paul i now see the retro board, cant see the grapics or name on it!
The mast track is well forward on it, easy see why modern boards plane earlier...

is it just the position of the mast track ? or the extra width though ? Of course planning earlier means it becomes bouncier and less controlable earlier too

mmm. bit of both with the early planning.
Ive still got a tiga wave & a Mistral Stinger,Mistral Screamer in the garage,ive had mistral ecstasy's Bic alto Tiga 280's Bic Persto + lots more & woulnt swap ALL of them for 1 of the more modern boards ive got...
Especially the AHD Maui force ive got, you really should try a modern wave board(youll want 1) & frame the Vitsea on the wall!

Kelvin,

I think some of us are missing something here..... OK I'll say it -

"What a s#!t hot picture man!"

I am sure that Al must concede that, in this case, who gives a monkeys about the size of the pic...

OK, OK, it is good!
