Re: Where did you surf today ?

If I was going to buy a mal and wanted epoxy I'd buy a Sunova over a Tolhurst due to the robust construction of the Sunova vs the Tolhurst and I'd be confident in the shapes would perform.

Beanpole, that's a Tolhurst for sure.
Tried surfing one of the 7'2"s in that tech (lightning) and it didn't paddle across the flats well or catch waves easily at all. Once up and riding it felt nice and loose but the poor paddling/wave catching left me non-plussed. Never tried any of the longboards.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A little further Nth of Trev the banks have not liked the straight swells for the last 2 weeks. The Brisso invansion has ramped up into full force over the weekend too.
Would be good to see some decent size again.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Just looked at the Noosa cam...is there a cyclone swell someone didn't tell me about that is inbound? 100 or so peeps out there scrapping over knee high waves. Why would you do it to yourself?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Probably buying a dirt jumper tomorrow. If I'm going to ride a bike its going to be like I stole it.
No sedate puttering around bike paths for me. Luckily the skate parks are closed so I won't be tempted to fang around in them.

Sounds like a Joel Fitz sea gypsy would suit you well. Wasn't it Tootr who bought one from my local shop? If so how are you liking it?
