Re: Autumn fourteen

Loggin comp scheduled for next Sunday at North Avalon, looks more like gun surf than log surf at this stage. I am definitely not 'match fit' for real waves. 'Twill be interesting to see how the forecast develops and what might eventuate.

Re: 'Transistional era' midlength Vee Bottoms

Thinning filler resin

I want to lay down a very thin coat of filler resin in some patches on an old D-fin mal that I've been "un-restoring", (ie sanding off all the extra resin that some other pillock has put on there to make the board look pretty, which in the process made an already heavy log even heavier. I'm not inte...

Dunno if this helps, but I have a 9'4" Erik Sommer model, its a combination of the scorpion and the "in the pink" models, it has the scorpion tail with widths directly comparable to the in the pink model but with a more pulled in nose at the end. It noserides ridiculously well, though its not your s...

Re: The L,E&A video thread

This is a video I bought recently, it's been a while since I bought a new flick, kinda lucked out when I bought this one in a bunch of others being cleared out.
Only watched it once so far, but based on that I endorse it for all, not just loggers.
