Hi fellow surfers. I'm an Australian who just turned 59, having surfed a fibreglass board since 1971. As I have aged, I've continued to surf.
Since I turned 50, I've ridden shortboards, longboards, SUP, & am now back on reasonably short boards. My current all-rounder is a 6'4" x 19 5/8" x 2 5/8", custom shape by Grant Miller here in Sydney (he used to live & shape in Southern California in the '90's).
I have a reasonably flexible job, which allows me to get into the surf 3 to 5 times per week. I supplement this with floor exercises & light weights.
God-willing, I'm about to finish working full-time, move south of Sydney, do part-time work, & put more time into my family & surfing.
I look forward to reading more of your posts, & am aiming to contribute.
Your Aussie mate in surfing,
