Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

I had four customs from Terry in the early (mid?) eighties. A pair of Drifta's, 6'8 and 6'4, that I took to Gragagan - Terry said the 6'8 was good for 10' Gragagan and it was. The other two, a 5'11 and 6'2 were a pair of McCoy inspired singles for the east coast. They had the rounded "boat" hull nos...

You've got to hand it to Cheyne though riding those Fcuking things in solid waves. He isn't. The board he won Bells on in 1984 was made by Terry Fitzgerald. The boards he is riding in the photos above were made by Glen Minami. All of them are a far cry from those boggy wide tailed pieces of shit he...

That 6'1 was one of Kingsley Looker's boards that he had been competing on (he was in the top 16 for a while). Bought it from their shop in Manly.

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

I had one of the first tri zaps (a 5'11) around 1983. I loved it and had no problems riding it at all, but riding a 6' single wide tail McCoy for a year in Bali before that probably helped.

Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

I've just got rid of those annoying astron zots. Basically I spent about one third of my surf time over the last 2 years fcuking around with them when I could have been on my nuggets or a lot of other boards that click within a few sessions.

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...

I had a 6'8 Al Byrne/Hot Stuff 6 chanel in about 1984. Great board that went really well in Indo.
