Re: post your modern day sickness

I had a 6'8 Al Byrne/Hot Stuff 6 chanel in about 1984. Great board that went really well in Indo.

Re: Midlengths

Nice looking board jet, I'd love to put it through its paces. A new season on the bukit starts for me soon, its gonna be a long one as usual and the best year ever I reckon. First up it will be the last try for the zots. This time with Winged keels or 6.5" centres and medium fronts. I think the keel...

Re: mctavish boards

Same as GSTQ, pretty sure it isn't a Tuflite. They always have the logo and that's a wood stringer, the pretend stringers are just paint lines

I've ridden them a lot, Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM

Re: skateboarding ...

I think the limited supply of waves may be the root cause of a lot of the animosity/localism in surfing.

Localism doesn't really occur in all the bike based sports I've done, front up to somewhere new and you'll usually be welcomed.

Or join a band.

Re: skateboarding ...

Perth used to have a great skating, jump bike, and BMX festival on the south shore of the Swan opposite the CBD. It was fcuking awesome, the skill level was unbelieable and the cross discipline rapport and vibe was great.

I already have high frequency hearing loss and tinnitus.
No way I'd be trying to flush my own ears out.
But I'd understand done carefully itd probably be OK.
Like boo I use a soft rubber syringe. I've been using them for over 50 years, its virtually impossible to do any damage.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Not sure if that is sarcasm Mr Legion, but I don't like the performance characteristics of flat, wide nose boards, but they certainly paddle and paddle into waves easily, but the longer wetted rail and wide nose just gets in the way after that.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

And then, unchanged for 25 years, is the McCoy approach to shortboards:

very short: for turning
very thick: for paddling
wide tail and mid: for speed and drive
narrow nose: easy to duck dive, never catches
lots of nose rocker: for steep drops and a shorter wetted rail for turns

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well there's no surf so that's a problem. But for me there's also great downill riding up in the mountains just out of town. You should hit the huge market in the old town on Sunday, hippydom and the silk road still lives. And I love the ancient temples and all the little nooks and crannies and weir...
