Nearly drowned. Be in hospital till his lungs clear.

Someone else died at Rocky Pt, they haven't released the ID yet, I am dreading it

Mikey Ho was talking about. died when someone bailed their board and it hit this guy right in the head, knocked him out and he sank to the bottom.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

How much does one cost, custom with S-cloth? from memory i got my last two 710 (no fins) ... i don't think they charged me for the s-cloth either time. the first one cost me 8-hunge, but i'm not sure if i got fins or why it was dearer. it was a few years ago now. Thought you would get a better pric...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

he just got back from some proper indo juice, late season swell. it's fine. just don't get one off the rack. order it, even make some changes to suit you even more and get it delivered from CI's sydney factory. get the s cloth if you're worried about breaking/ denting it. I can't praise those guys e...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I wouldn’t get a CI for that reason. I’d get a locally made custom, something similar, and make sure it’s good materials. The peregrine is nice. It’s Like a blend of an Eighties thruster and modern HPS. That’s what appeals to me. i got a good mate on a Black and white, and he loves it. best board e...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

nah ... CI is way better than JS and dhd. i've had my CI step up for over a year and its barely dinged. good boards. Doesn't it depend on which licencee shapes and glasses them? it may do? i'm not sure. I get mine custom and shipped up from sydney, onboard store i think it's called. they are always...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

chest high south straddie-like peaks here too. i ripped the full deck grip off and the board is so much more lighter. it's unbelievable. it's great to be on wax again too. Once my feet hit the deck grip, they weren't moving. at all. so much poo stancing i could have easily walked away from surfing f...
