Nice. Was it a little on the 'pink' side?

Re: New Hollow board

Amazing looking board. I noticed you packed the hollow sections with foam. Was that to stop depressions in the deck or does it add to the overall floatation? I'm assuming the hollow sections are water tight but will the foam give you some insurance if one of the sections is breached ala the Titanic?

Re: Forecast for Fiji islands 27 Sep to October?

Tiny on Sept 27th, but a new SW groundswell looks possible from Friday 28th (2-3ft+) building to 3-4ft+ on Sat 29th waning slowly back down to very small conditions again come the middle of the first week in October. You were on the money Don. Went out to the islands on that Saturday and surfed a f...

Re: Dark Pandemonium: Parko@Pipe.

I almost see something reminiscient of Slater's last few contests and the last few Ponting innings - lots of effort with very little output. Can Slater turn it around, unlike Punter? Maybe it's just me... being very hopeful.
Go Parko.

Re: Josh Dowling Designs

Hey JD, thanks for getting it out there. I don't think I'll have too much luck around the area - it'll probably be either further north or south of here.
Absolutely offering a reward for any info though.
Cheers for the commiserations guys. Fcuking board thieves...

Shiite that is big! Whale bay is just a washing machine of froth! I wouldn't have taken it on.

^^^ I don't know about that. I stayed there a couple of years ago and the bloke who ran the accomm. said Raglan could handle 12 foot easily.
