Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

Stu Nettle: I had ten surfs on a Lazor Zap. The dimensions were 6'0" x 20'3/4" x 3'. It had a touch too much foam for my 75kg frame and a 5'10" would've been better suited. The waves I rode it in were between two and four feet. In surf this size the first turn on a regular shortboard is nearly alway...

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

Just for the record. Found this on some obscure forum: Displacement Hulls They're one of a variety of convex bottom designs, effective when used in combination with other elements of design. Here's a portion of something I wrote a few years ago that talks about the rounded convex bottoms you find on...

Re: Midlengths

Nice looking board jet, I'd love to put it through its paces. A new season on the bukit starts for me soon, its gonna be a long one as usual and the best year ever I reckon. First up it will be the last try for the zots. This time with Winged keels or 6.5" centres and medium fronts. I think the keel...

Re: mctavish boards

Same as GSTQ, pretty sure it isn't a Tuflite. They always have the logo and that's a wood stringer, the pretend stringers are just paint lines

I've ridden them a lot, Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM

Re: skateboarding ...

I think the limited supply of waves may be the root cause of a lot of the animosity/localism in surfing.

Localism doesn't really occur in all the bike based sports I've done, front up to somewhere new and you'll usually be welcomed.

Or join a band.

Re: skateboarding ...

Perth used to have a great skating, jump bike, and BMX festival on the south shore of the Swan opposite the CBD. It was fcuking awesome, the skill level was unbelieable and the cross discipline rapport and vibe was great.

I already have high frequency hearing loss and tinnitus.
No way I'd be trying to flush my own ears out.
But I'd understand done carefully itd probably be OK.
Like boo I use a soft rubber syringe. I've been using them for over 50 years, its virtually impossible to do any damage.
