Cult of the Roundtail

People want to talk about roundtails. In lineups, parking lots, wherever. A surly old bearded dude stink-eyed me for an hour the other day, then finally paddled over. I braced for the altercation, but all he said was, "roundtail?"
"Roundtail," I confirmed.
He threw me a shaka. "Roundtail" he proclaimed and paddled away.
Old dudes throwing shakas up here is just damn funny, no matter how you slice it.
Here's a wide-tailed eggy roundtail, 6'5", with a single wing and some double concaves.
Both my dust collection system and my cd player are now on the 'injured' list.
The roundtail couldn't care less.
