Re: Hawaii or Costa Rica Mid April - Early May

the BI has great waves, probably not on the level of some of the other islands but still pretty awesome. Picks up plenty of south swell- I won't name breaks but Puna side has a couple of good spots as does south kona side.

Traffic isn't something you need to worry about, that's for sure!

Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

if you're interested in the Deus I'll let you know when I'm soon ready to let it go (prob in about two weeks or so). It's the Chris Garrett rocket fish, but with all the Deus branding, hipster resin tints, cutlap glassing etc. the Rocket fish is one of his prior models, based off the early 80's Tow...

Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

Hey don't think I'm going all Morrison on you, but I'm keen to get a twin fin. I've had a go on a Bertlemann reissue and really liked it, but my knowledge is fairly limited. Found this thread and saw hatchy's Deus board- looks pretty sweet! I like the little stabiliser option on it too. Still got it...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Potato Point, a lovely spot to get skunked.

Been a few times recently, driving away from pumping Illawarra thinking I'll be sampling some fine southern NSW quality only to find mushburgers and close outs.

Anyway this is a NTH nsw thread BF! South side doesn't get a look-in

Sandon on the pump this morn. Only had an hour... not much time when it's sizeable.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

@Womble, yeah that is interesting- I can imagine knee boarding was a hotbed of progressive moves until short boards caught up. Maybe like bodyboarders might feel a tad hard done by charging all these slabs previously considered unsurfable as a stand up, only to have them wrenched away. "This is Ours...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Thanks, all.

I'll head to the board swap and see if a hipster wants it for his Bertleman thruster.

If not, Gumtree it is!

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Sorry- yeah I meant you need fins for your feetz.

I have tried to stand up surf it with fairly horrible results. Highly probable it wasn't the board's fault.

It has a single fin

Re: Just general surfing stuff

So I need my Realsurf brothers' advice here: somehow a few years back I ended up with this 70's Skipp kneeboard with a flex tail. The thing is sick, but I haven't ever really successfully surfed it- I've tried it on a fairly weak swell and I thought it might float and get on waves well being fat as,...

I have. really good friend lives in Ennis there. it's fcuking amazing- I was there in summer, the surf was shite but we cruised around checking out set ups, walking around incredible old ruins and graveyards, drinking the best Guiness I've ever had before or since, going to a massive Hurling match b...

Re: Melbourne.

I think generally most people in Sydney absolutely know that Melbourne is a far better city. That whole melb v syd thing is a real 1980's throwback. I think Melbourne is tops, a great place to have a really genuinely random night out- we used to play gigs there that didn't start until 2am, finish up...
