Re: Midlengths

I use a 6” in my 7.2 Bonzer egg. Plenty of fin and rail to go around.
That said there’s little difference between the 6, 6.5 True Ames fins.

Use a 8 1/2 “ Fibreglas Fin Co Larry Allison flex (very similar to Greenough 4a) in a single fin board.

Funny, I saw a McCoy in a shop yesterday.
Could almost fit my hand around the rail.

Re: post your modern day sickness

So is 38 litres supposed to be a lot??? Too much??

Only asking because I don’t have a single board with litres written on it.


And before one of you bastards calls me Mr Creosote I’m 182/90.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Surfed a Tolhurst tuflite a couple of times.
Despite being a very nice shape, didn’t like how it went at all.
If I found one on The Gumtree super super cheap, might try one again, but yeah, nah.

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Pretty hard to get good statistics out of the smart drumlines data. They have been in place for the two years of the study only at Evans and Ballina. They were only in place at Forster/Coffs (81 tagged) for six months, similarly at the south coast locations. What is does show is a seasonality to the...

I gotta get me a handplane. What one have you got? One of these https://www.podware.com.au/pod-handboards-solid-plastic-bodysurfing-handplanes/ Add some body boarding fins, and you’re set. Solid workout though, lots of swimming and treading water. I can vouch for those handplanes. Forget the hipste...
