Surf Rack

A lazy Monday with again a lack of surf worth getting excited about meant that it was time to do those little things on the chores list. After tidying up around the house and giving it a once over with the new vacuum cleaner, I decided to attach the surf racks (which I bought from Maki @ Bloom Surf Shop a while back) on the bike. It's a pretty easy process. Just a matter of mounting them and making sure there is enough clearance for my knees and big feet to ride the bike without too much hassle once they were in place.


Then, with a some daylight left in the day, I made a little name plate to hang by the door so that visitors can find our place easy enough. I used the Japanese Kanji characters for our Japanese family name. I played around with various variations including using my family name as well as our first names, but simplicity won over and for now at least it will just show the Kanji version.What do you think?
