Were older surfers satisfied with Tracks in the 1970s and 1980s? damn straight... from the hilarous stories of games of 'animal noise thumper' in hawaii, the hot buttered kombi spitting gearbox cogs all over the hume highway, insightful in depth articles on board design, how to be an A grade 'gentl...

You see a lot of bad surfing on thrusters but the question is really would they be any better on singles and the answer I think is No. That said I get the impression that a lot of people are riding boards that are either badly designed or unsuited to their needs.

FYI grey nurse sharks are not targeted by fishos. Not for 'sport' and not for eating. There are also broad exclusion zones around known grey nurse hangouts, with restrictions on gear used near their haunts (hook size and no use of wire traces) so accidental catches are very rare. It's easy to blame ...
