Celebrating in Bitcoin terms means spending BTC, so on Cyber Monday I decided to cash out a little bit for a new Surf baord, and it was already worth it!
Monday morning I could feel it, the Bitcoin wealth Effect was kicking into high gear. I did not realize that was why why I was getting the new board, nevertheless I made the big announcement on my @coininstant blog, just to make sure I did not change my mind.
And the winner is… me for scoring a brand new Jimmy Lewis seven foot Destroyer.
After picking up the board I headed straight to the beach. There were some waves, although it was a little choppy, it would do for my very first "freshie" test ride session! I strapped the Go-Pro to my head and paddled out, the board was nice and light. I seemed to be in control to now so all I had to do was catch a wave and stand up! Surfing is not easy, luckily I already have years of experience learning how, but it has been a long time since then and I have gotten a little bit rusty. There's always something about trying to stand up on a fast moving board as it rocks back and fourth while rippling down the slope of a wave each time! Now it was my turn, I spotted my wave and paddled as fast as I could, maybe it's true there is something magical about the 7'0" size in Board because somehow I just stuck my foot out through the white wash, and it just magically stuck, I stood up and I was off.
After a handful of waves I was more than satisfied with my new 7-0 Jimmy Lewis Destroyer, and can't wait to get back to the beach for some more surf.
Check out the video below, testing out the new board.
