And marrkkkkkk, bear etc, take a trip out of your own heads and have a look at what's going on here. You've been taken for a ride by the Media. Perhaps Stab could do a headline on their next issue, "Savage 16 year old bodyboard riders swear revenge on incredibly high profile millionaire WCT pro; web...

What about Dave Rastavich. How good is his life!! Free surfing in sick locations all year and gets paid to do it by Billabong and Electric. Not a bad life I reckon yeah, and never has to prove hisself against the best in the world. wool: meet eyes. Why should he? Contests dont necessarily prove you...

Wave is here now. For those with exposure to the ene, you may notice a groundswell pulse, kicked in around 10 this morning from the cyclone near Fiji a few days ago. Said cyclone now buggered off to the SE and joining a tropical depression near Tahiti.

Nick C - do you use them all the time? Does TC? No, hell no. I sometimes ride a 5'8" TufLite which is one of Tom's models, it's very thin with a deep concave that filters out to a slightly vee'd swallowtail, and it totally KILLS small waves. It's definitely influenced how I think about the material...

Hey Nick...I blame your brother... Man, so do I. For sooo much. Though despite the Tom Carroll Surfing Doll, I can't see him as being kitschy. Just as an aside, when was Kitsch born into surfing? Was it Gidget and "her lame grass kook shack" (to quote "Tubesteak", surely the first of a great legion...

At an extreme, it’s like asking you and TC to ride the same equipment :shock: But...but he's a GOOFYFOOT :o I know what you're getting at too -- thing is a lot of the larger volume boardmakers are trying to do exactly that, make the same board for a lot of different people -- and that's an advantag...

That’s as much of a red rag to me as my earlier post was to Hawkeye. I would fashion a board out of toothpicks if it were the answer. I'm glad to hear it! And I'd bloody ride it too, if it were the answer. Still the biggest problem I have with any of this is that we a being fed a limited number of ...

In a previous Tuflite type thread it was suggested that the market may become consumer driven. Time will tell. That's the thing. The market IS ALREADY consumer driven. Today it's driven by a wider range of people than ever before. The old solutions just aren't enough any more; maybe they never real...

They make more headlines in the off-season than any other club, and it's all for the wrong reasons. Ahh Fong I'm sorry. There's...
