Re: Where did you surf today ?

South facing reef, inconsistent chest to head high but fun when they came through. Lefts were pretty fat but the rights had a nice wackable bowl.

Re: Ebay Bargains thread

in the 90’s on southern GC it seemed everyone was either on a pipedream or Mt woodgee. I must’ve owned at least 3 of Murray’s boards. The PD branded boards now look to be marketed squarely at the intermediate surfer market, smaller waves, and sold at a price point. But if Murray is designing the boa...

Re: Ebay Bargains thread

$100 is cheap enough for a gorilla or learner sized board https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/enmore/surfing/pipedream-pipefish-surfboard-6-10/1195758317 https://i.postimg.cc/xCLKHnrL/18976945-0216-483_E-8213-_A4_F4_C112_A9_EC.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/9f6drzkW/46_D160_B7-9631-480_E-868_B-_B9_BDDC2_CB2_D...

He flows and connects effortlessly without all the ugly tic-tac two-step stuff.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Sounds like you did ok. Maroubra, chest to head high and clean. But a wobbly fat and slow swell. Lumpy and hard to get any drive out of it. Super crowded.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Then werri beach. And just now, a breakwall outer bar righthander all to myself with shoulder to head high sets. Lots of current running in the opposite direction. Had to sit wide, wait for it, then edge into the peak. Surfed the twinny again.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Chest high steep peaky beach break in Wollongong. Surfed the mini mal, then the twinny. Two boards I’ve not surfed in nearly a year. The twin felt like a wild rocket after coming off surfing singles and thrusters non stop for ages. Only took a couple of waves to reset and get back into it again.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Still haven't decided on what boards to take. forecast looks quiet for the start. You’re heading to the mentz and don’t know what boards to take? Protow? Bonzer? Surely you got plenty. All those boards you gots built for grinding point surf would surely fit. Fk if I was heading there now I’d be buy...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I dunno, all this "oh I'm bored" stuff sounds a bit rehearsed to me. Yeah. Boring, underwhelming. Call it what you like. I kinda switched off from giving a shit about the pro circuit right around the early nineties when boards became 17 inches wide and I realised that Tracks magazine was written by...

Oh god how irrelevant and sterile. Sounds even worse than watching that tic-tac 5 foot cross-onshore Bells beach event.

You surf today beanmong ? It was pretty small and weak so guessing you’d have been frothing on it.

Ok looks like i know who it is too.

The cop Lindsay is a keen surfer as is his son. There is a lot of background.
57 and angry. Is he still on a high performance thruster out in point surf? If so that explains everything

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah but there’s plenty of (good) surfers around in the 90+ kg range, busting airs even. Can’t see myself loosing any bulk. Quite the opposite as the weights and calorie demands are on the increase. But, why? I'm not against weights, far from it. I've been doing some light stuff this year and resol...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Yeah I like the look of mctavish boards. Just not the price tag. Sherpa looks like fun, but doesnt really look to be suited to much of the (often uneven) conditions we get down here. The mctavish rambler looks great though. Might get anther Rabbidge at some point. My current 6”10 step up is just lik...

Mark Rabbidge does an excellent job hidden foam, whilst keeping the knifey sensitive feel.

Flow eggs are meant to suck. How about a 6'6 Bonzer Egg.
Yep. Thinking of that too.

And nah, not the mctavish sumo, or takayama scorpion et al. I don’t want a flatish board that’s a essentially a lopped off longboard with a shortboard arse end.
