Re: Just general surfing stuff

Thanks for the reference Hatchy. Here's a few excerpts: "TufLite reacts abruptly to any changes in the wave face with no softening of its effects beyond that built into the board's design . It's not a particularly good or bad feeling -- just different. A competent surfer might work with it to gain s...

We know cranked is just trolling because he doesn't even surf sw WA.
I surfed the WA coast (mainly the SW and NW) from when I moved here from Cronulla in 1990 until I retired four years ago, now I just surf the bukit for 6 months a year.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

At 9' they have plenty of weight and momentum. I've ridden them in heavy chop in double overhead at MR main break and Yallingup, as have lots of other surfers here in WA. Don't listen to Iggy, he probably hasn't ridden a mal in anything over head high.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

A few different options here https://www.thesurfboardwarehouse.com.au/aqss-boulevard-longboard/ Was gonna suggest those guys but thought Coops was taking the piss.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

You should be able to get a nearly as new surftech version of the some world's most renowned shapers designs (alive or dead) for around $500-$700

Here's a Yater in WA for $500

Re: Where did you surf today ?

The water temp felt a tad warmer, mind. Success! Nope, it was pretty cold south of the Gong. On the bright side, I must have caught the most waves of any session that I ever had in Oz. I recall three times when my surfing suddenly took huge leaps forward. Each was proceeded by a long period of frus...

Lol at you two. One of the most stylish, best surfers ever. As the guy in the clip said, 1% of the 1% of the 1%.

I wish they threw a loaded dome in the mix :P
Good idea, it would have ideally suited a man whose rear foot straddled the twin fin "V" behind the leash plug, I'm sure he would have appreciated riding from the tail and not having to move his feet

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I think he gave each board a really good workout though and tried to surf it as it was designed to be surfed and quickly displayed the limits of each design. Is that fair comment? Not to be argumentative, I thought it showed an amazing surfer so hard wired to his board type that he could not get to...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

All in all, I thought it the best and most revealing way to do a board test that I've seen.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That was a great review of a pile of boards.

The Channel Islands 5'9 Neckbeard seemed to be the one that he had most affinity for. Agree about planting your feet and not moving them
