Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

Bargain. Back when I had my original, a larger mate had a scaled up version I rode a few times in bigger waves. Went unreal. Also, there is, or was, some photos on Mick’s insta of him surfing very solid Padang Padang on a twin

Re: rear quad fins symmetry difference

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I once planted a tree at Bells for the Conservation Contest. Might be wrong, but think it's since been buried by a carpark. That carpark has since been expanded to accommodate buses. Who the fcuk has right to deny tourist access to a famed surfing reserve?

I've seen that film, but will watch it again. Part of me romanticised a life like that, but in reality it wouldn't be something I could ever sustain

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Sole on my O'Neil reef boots thin and good, but yeah, probably no good for meaningful warmth

And agree with Legion re sizing - you want a firm fit, but too small is fcuked. The tension strap across the foot serves its purpose well

Didn't realise netting was seasonal along the Newcastle to 'gong stretch

Reliable anecdotes have the numbers up here too. Difference is, rather than juvenile/sub adult, they're big fcukers. The inbetweeners are somewhere near Loof
