Yep, Swellnet did a lengthy article on him and the epoxy issues.

I sold my JD, liked it a lot just didn’t get the optimum conditions for it regularly enough.
What are the optimum conditions for them?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Yes he developed epoxy sensitivity. Bit hard given his epoxy construction techniques. He would cover himself head to toe in like a cleanroom suit and full head masks etc with taped joins everywhere and still break out in chronic rashes. And as a result gave it away, something he'd spent a couple of...

I'm back, but moved on from JD.
I have been checking out the josh Dowling thread. Looks like he gets a lot of respect round abouts!

I've got 4 JDs up for sale. None of which will sell.
Are they these ones you have still?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The board I snapped was 5'11" x 18' 3/4 x 2' 5/16 26 cl It was a Stacy Reaper model and felt like a weapon! Second hand. Are these dims fairly standard? Cos I want something similar, any hot tips or if one of you has a decent board around that, hit me up. I'm always too broke to get customs. One day.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Absolutely pumping down at the nasho. Was just getting started when I got totally caught out by a rogue close out. Landed on me, so I dived and came up to find my board in half. AND NO FCUKING SPARE! Bummed.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Howling, horrid freezing wind taking the tops off it down here, managed to get a couple of fun ones but it was pretty hard work. My new Needs 4/3 didn't feel too warm, that's for sure.

My skills would improve if I could get more waves at the peak. Thanks for making this happen, Nick.

You take the inside and surf behind me or will you be just calling people off the wave?
I reckon have the Enforcer, loofy there to call off the crew

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I’m mostly just trying to annoy steve, Wyre. But yeah, it’s not that it’s off the hook more that those really long period groundswells are pretty rare, what with our teensy tiny swell window. The sets, such as they were, the other morning were get one, paddle out, get one paddle out etc etc Sounds ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Ok, but surely there are days when the swell doesn't come in with 100+ waves an hour?! On the current acute long period south swell here the sets are breaking every 15-20 mins, sometimes only 1-3 waves a set. 5 good ones this am was positively gluttonous!

Is Wales off the hook when there's swell?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surely 30 waves per two hour session should be everyone’s benchmark, particularly when it’s only a couple of feet. Go have a look at how many the pros are catching at Keramas and you’ll see that 10+ in a thirty minute heat is not exactly uncommon. No wonder you all remain so persistently shit. I ha...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Super fun session by moonlight at 5.30 this morning at the only spot working in this swell round here. I got about 50* runners before the sun was up and the crowds began to descend.

*5, but used GsTQ scale for effect

You are on the right side of the Gong BF! Pretty hard to find much up here, and the banks are all straight.
