Board Share Directory

Rather than stepping outside of the UKB medium, feel free to add your board here. For those who have already mentioned your boards - if you could take a moment to insert those details within this thread. In order to preserve the thread as a useful repository, try to avoid extraneous posts. Perhaps add some pictures or video shorts of your wench.  Hopefully, you'll find your training partner from heaven.

To roll the ball:

I actually pretty much agree with your grades there Woz. Lee won't but he can only do the first one on the list so its immaterial  :'(

More worryingly than this nonsense, is that higher up this thread there's a man training on a board wearing socks and a watch. What. The. Fuck.

Pete Chadwick is the man wearing socks and a watch. It's his look and you better not confront him about it or else he'll crimp you to pieces. Funny actually, he was actually repremanding us all last night for not wearing socks  :lol:
Add the watch into the equation and you have a perfectly good 80s male pr0nstar.

i see what you're doing there, nice. my opinion is noted by nige. 1-4-7 is neither 7c+ or 7c what utter nonsense. grading campus moves, idiots. i won't be popping round woz, but you probably suspected that already.
 
Come on Lee, its not like he's claiming 8c is it 
what so that makes it ok to grade campus moves? i know gradings completely arbitrary but come on. i walked up a slight incline before, 2c i thought. then i carried a rather large bag up, my problem is whether to claim a bigger grade or just say i walked up the hill with a bag...
why can't people just say i did 1-4-7 instead of adjusting for a scorecard? beggars belief
remember nige i was there when you first did 1-5-8a. if you'd have dropped down and claimed 8a for it i would have beaten you with the barbell ;)

so i was just relaxing in the bath, maybe too distressing for some people, then it hit me "archimedes" i cried. then forced him off and told him to go downstairs. anyway i digress, the next thought was that you're obviously talking about using 3 or 4 fingers. what if you were to use 2 fingers? this is much, much harder than 3 or 4. then even mono's, i cannot right much enough times to emphasize the difference between mono's and 2 fingers. 2 fingers must be worth at least 2 grades more, with mono's, i won't even pretend to know about campussing on mono's, only that it brings a tear to my eye thinking about it.
oh yes i forgot, nice one daniel you monster. jade's a good name too

You missed a bit.  However, one typo in a post of such towering authority is entirely forgivable.  Nice one.

Yeah we all got a total dressing down for the lack of socks when the Chadmeister came down the other day.  As we said...  give it ten or twenty years!

Andy, that sounds scarily like you may attempt to legitimise a future attempt at donning the socks and watch. If you do, don't forget it needs to be an Argos 4.99 black plastic Casio job and Birkenhead market's own Hike brand of pop socks.
