Re: swimming/paddling/misc water sports.

Don't forget the 'anti' core stuff - anti rotation, flexion etc. That is good for injury prevention (whereas flexion work is perhaps more relevant to atheletic activity)

Re: Midlengths

so is this shape suitable for beachies or is it more of a point break board? 6'10" x 21.5" x 2.75". Not looking at buying, just to learn a bit.

Re: Every trannies nightmare

And its only going to give fuel to those right wingers/religious conservatives who see gender dysphoria as a 'phase' or as a mental issue that can be cured. And more attacks on the Safe School program etc (and Trump is also getting stuck into transgender people). And for Westerly to be in the centre...

Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

Apparently there is a 'matt Tatum' who is authorised to shape mccoys (or iaw his designs) Ive seen a few places with 'nuggets'; which seems to have become a generic name for thst shape.

Re: Midlengths

Thsnks CTD. Wondering why a Darren Rogers would be different to McCoy. Surely it wouldn't go down well with the supreme As said the Rodgers ones are reputed to be more 'refined'. Its a bit hard to get stock figures on the real McCoys but the all round nugget at 6'10 seems to be 6’10 x 21 1/2 x 3. M...

Re: Midlengths

I agree with what's been said. If you go to the Firewire site you can find a board with similar dimensions to the MC Islander, the closest I found was 6'10 by 22'' by 3 1/4'' which has a volume of 55.4 litres, if you add about 1 1/2 litres for the 3/4'' width difference you get 57 litres. The 6'10'...

Re: Midlengths

Thanks for the comments, food for thought . I knew it was high volume (I'm 80kg or a tad more) but narrow nose etc so thought there might still be relatively easy turning. not that I'm a massive turner, mostly weaving up and down and the odd (looking) cutback. I do have a mini mal so have a high vol...

Re: Midlengths

Looking at this - just not certain. its an MC Islander 6'10 x 22 3/4 x 3 1/4 (wide!). Single concave as well, although not sure how deep. 5 fin set up. Seems like almost a 'big boy shortboard' (I'm not particularly big) or maybe something close to a Firewire Addvance (with a narrower nose) or a V-sk...

Re: Midlengths

I've noticed on my google stalking that a few have mentioned surfing a Cundith Islander - any thoughts? At the moment am trying to decide between Islander - 6'10 x 22 3/4 x 3 1/4 Miller V skate 6'7 x 21 ½ X 2 ¾ or just get a new Miller waterskate (6'8 or 6'10) (since they hardly ever seem to come up...
