Surfing? In Las Vegas? There isn’t much surfing here but Ron Jon Surf Shop is ready for you if want to do it. We were research tropical surfing and found a surf shop here so we went to ask the experts about surfing.

Eric Nelson
Manager
Ron Jon Surf Shop

Eric Nelson, manager of Ron Jon helped us out, he told us about the various surfboards for the different kind of waves, there is a surfboard for all of them.  The serious all-out surfer would probably use a long board to tackle the biggest of waves which you can find in several tropical areas including Australia, Indonesia and most of the South Pacific coasts. Hawaii is well known for it’s outstanding waves on the North Shore. Then there is the casual weekend surfer that might not want to tackle large waves but still loves to surf, someone in this category might use a short board which seems to be the most popular board. There is a surfboard for every size and wave and surfboards are also a specific shape so that they ride the waves and not sink to the bottom. The shape contours to the rider and is made up of design features such as:  The Nose – The front tip of the surfboard, The Tail – The back part of the surf board, The Rocker – The curve applied to the nose and tail and, The Rail – which are the shape of the sides of the surfboard. The width of a board is the size of a surfboard in perpendicular to the stringer. It is measured at the widest point. The broad board will float better and is more buoyant, these are more stable and ideal for beginners. 20 to 22 inches is a good width for beginners. Experts often choose a 17 to 19 inch width for better control over the board.

Surfboard with wax and sunglasses

Before the 15th century, transportation for hire because a must for the wealthy to show that thy rural publicity arrived.

The word limousine derived from the French word “Hooded Garment” referring to the hooded cloak that shepherds wore to protect themselves from the weather.

During the 15th century, the Hungarians developed the “coach”, which is the modern enclosed carriage with an elevated outside seat for the driver, the “coachman.

By the late 1700’s, 14,000 of these carriages could be found all around Paris.

Carriages became more luxurious and extravagant with time.

These “Palace on Wheels” includes a bedroom, library and a butler’s pantry in the carriages.

Some included a library, speaking tubes, etc.

At this time, carriages were mainly used by the Royalty and Rich.

Paris 1899 carriages could be found with modern carvings made out of mahogany and silver flower holders in them. Speaking tubes helped communications between the driver and the passengers,

A brass tube would be led up to the driver like a trumpet . This was implemented because of dealing with the surrounding noise.
