We don’t care that it’s true. We’re offended. There are politically correct ways to describe such boards. How about “maintenance and cleanliness-challenged boards that time forgot”?
We’d also like to point out that five of the top ten finishers in the ECWF racing competition were sailing these boards (as were a few thousand insects that accompanied some of the boards from their storage-challenged homes.)
So NEWJ: We’re all umbraged up! Damn straight…
Actually we’re delighted to have coverage from the mighty NEWJ! And we hope to see NEWJ cover Long Island’s upcoming East Coast Fall Regatta, taking place October 10-11th during Columbus Day weekend. Read the event announcement for details, and in the meantime, think about hosing down your junkpile longboard (or go get one if you aren’t yet a proud owner.) Because NEWJ may be conducting white glove tests at the event!
