Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

Had a few surfs on the DHD twin.
Love it.
Plenty of foam up front for paddling, nice thin in the tail for turning.
Looking forward to getting it into a few bigger waves to see how it goes.

80kg. 5’10 x 19 3/4 x 2 1/2 31.5L MR PC twin + trailer.

Friend of mine who has been says take a longer board. Just in case of small swell or complete exhaustion. So the 6'8 sounds like it should be one of them
The 6’8 served that purpose well in indo. The last few days of the trip I was stuffed.

Re: Quiver thread

Have spent a bit of time thinking about what boards i’m going to take Nusa Island Retreat in 6 weeks. Went and put the tape over a few of my boards to try and figure out which ones to take. Biggest learning.... they all reduce in tail rocker as they shorten. Their tails get narrower as they get long...

Re: Eggs - how do you like them?

I updated my quiver the quiver thread.
10’s a nice round number.
I could talk about my boards all day. But will do so in the quiver thread for any takers.
Been meaning to take a new photos but can’t find the time on the weekends with a young family.

Re: Eggs - how do you like them?

Never thought I’d do it.... but i sold my waterskate. 7’0 egg in the future. Did you not like it with the single fin installed? I really did like it but.... a few things. 1. I got $400 with average fins and leggy for it. Not bad for a 10 year old board. 2. I saw a 5’10 DHD the twin on the gumtree w...

I think there's something wrong with me. For the first time since I started surfing I feel like there's no room in my life for more boards.
Surely it's a passing phase.
Just stumbled across this. Bought a twinny yesterday.

Ok ok ok. This is the last one. :-D-:

Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

I put those MR fins in my new shorty, didn't really like them. Stuck the Large AM thrusters back in. Worth a shot. Good news is, I've got a nice set of fins in the bucket. May need to save some dollars for a swallowtailed flyer twin. Still stinging for a twinny. Been frothin over the MR site. The r...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I've got one of the 2/2 short sleeve steamer synchros. Back zip. Keeps the sun off in summer. Not geared for warmth, however I reckon the long sleeve 3/2 would be a better buy, especially the chest zip.

Might give it a crack and see.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a few nice ones friday arvo at the point.
Today was too big, wobbly, and crowded for me so I took my kids to the spring fair.

Be careful out there today there's a bit of size around

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Surfed the EVO out at the point the other morning. 3-4ft full high tide. Bit of power. Had it set up as a quad with PC Carver Large fronts and some shapers core lite rear quads. Didn't enjoy it. Felt skatey. Didn't like it. I've put carver fronts and a large AM rear in the centre box for next time. ...
