Re: Just general surfing stuff

two things.

It sucks water (scientific fact).
And it doesn't ride as well as a PU core (subjective reality for many people).

Re: Just general surfing stuff

painting the blank white can interfere with the chemical bond between resin and blank.

keep them out of the sun when not surfing.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I understand that is a technical and scientific reality but for the life of me I can't find any practical proof of it in terms of my "lived experience". PU/Epoxy gets just as trashed on the rocks, dents just as much and I can't discern any difference in feel on a well ridden 5 year old board between...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

PU cores last a lot longer than EPS cores though. I'm really not sure about that whole PU board losing it's life thing. I've got poly boards 20+ years old that surf fine. Few years back I was marooned without a shortboard....it was the great winter of 2007 and I'd snapped all my shortboards. A mate ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

And it will until there is some way I can get back to the high-water point of wetsuit design and functionality; which was an O'Neill Gooru.

LS Spring, buttery rubber sealed seams. Bat wing, back zip.
Warm, flexible and easy as fcuk to get in and out of.


Sadly, now extinct.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

maybe for Iceland or Ireland.

It did keep water out, I'll give it that. Incredibly warm for a 2mm suit.

Definitely warmer than my Quik 3/2 steamer.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I'm fine with condoms and soft plastic lures, or rubbers as they are colloquially known by some older gents.

I just fail to see why a wetsuit has to be made so hard to get in and out of.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Surfed the new Need. It's a substantially more solid suit than the older version. All seams taped and sealed, tighter cuffs, different angle to the chest zip. all told, a much warmer and more solid suit. Also, much, ,much harder to get in and out of. It took me a good wrestle to get out if it. Hopef...
