Re: Step up boards

Make sure you give a spiel on your new stick in any conditions I reckon it looks like a weapon. Sorry for the delayed report but I took it out for the Cyclone Winston swell back in... February? Was solid 6ft/6ft+ and went pretty well. It was a while back now but if I had to sum up how it went in a ...

Re: Kelly's wave.

Who would really convert to surfing after going to a wave pool?. Even in "Dubbo dave" spent months at a wave pool and got right into it, the first time he tried to go out through a shore break, or lost his board, or just simply rocked up expecting perfect waves and saw the average east coast pus 3 ...
