Re: 6'9" custom Jim Banks, clean and never ridden

Well no, Joe Bloggs could sell it and get another one, just like me.

Maybe Joe Bloggs wouldn't detect the not quite rightness till down the track though. Like, this is a gorgeous board. It's only not quite right for what I'm after.

Re: 6'9" custom Jim Banks, clean and never ridden

Looks nice, what are the rails like? Fine throughout, soft and easy from 2/3 back to the nose pulled to a hard edge through the back third and tail. The FLV rocker/bottom is kinda like a forward fee but blending into a double concave through the centre vee, plenty of rocker to set it off, flat tail...

6'9" custom Jim Banks, clean and never ridden

Check it out. 6'9" x 19" x 2.5" Banksy, hand finished in Bali, five plug FLV pintail. Gorgeous board, not quite right for me, I know it and so have preserved it unridden for a lucky owner.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Then! Then a real beast. Intense low moving off Bass Strait on Friday night, forecast to explode into a massive Tasman-wide thing by Sunday, with a big s-se fetch affecting the whole south-eastern coast. Very winter-style swell with potential to go a long way. It might be one of those rare big SE Au...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Rare swell coming for Sydney and points south and a bit north Long range SE groundswell from a fetch edging around the base of the south island of NZ. A lot of the time these fetches are stuck on the other side of NZ but this one is bending around and blowing up halfway into the southern Tasman. It'...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fcuk eh, I had a lot of fun today! Confused swell energy but just right for where I was surfing. Pinballing around, a lot of turns felt good, playful and a bit elevated. Boardshorts! So happy.

Re: Just general surfing stuff
