A lot of times I'll see guys who are nowhere near the level of the board they're riding. They might love surfing and love how it looks, but you really have to work your way up. It takes eating a little humble pie at first, and stepping back to equipment that might be a bit slow, but do it.
War is not only a matter of equipment, artillery, group troops or air force; it is largely a matter of spirit, or morale.
