I noticed recently nth bondi has got some new rescue boards with soft rails :idea: This is a great development. I find it amazing these haven't popped up before considering all the learner boards around for years. Personally I find it interesting for people to reflect on surfclubs and their characte...

It was supposed to be firing in the last cyclone.
It needs heaps of swell to work.

Used to ride an old Farrelly when I first started tooling around on mals. It was someones brothers who didn't use it much...

Years ago I was cruising down the coast with an old girlfriend in her Wolsley and I had some softracks attaching the board to the roof. I'd been surfing all morning and was dozing in the afternoon sun. As we drove past a big excavated section on the hiway the sun cast the shadow of the car with the ...

Don't poop in your own nest :?

The thing with Wegeners that I've seen is that sandwich style construction on the rail. It seems odd to me. Having said that I would love the luxury of having one to surf overated point breaks on 2' days 8)
If you got hit by one how would you feel?

I've heard Nth Narra has quite a nice break on its day. A bit hollow though but I don't mind going over the falls with the lip :D
