single fin

Took it out the other day. First beach was south facing, and the sets were 4-5 hollow, and sandy, well, the ones that didn't close out. So, i left them to my mates, and went around the corner. Chest high, gutless wind chop. Paddled alright, catching waves was ok. Didn't get a lot of speed out of it,...

disc

MKM, thanks mate, there are no flyers on the discy thing, it loks like it, but that's just because there is a tucked edge, which fades to nothing into the tail. I want a nice crisp edge in the tail. Yeah shed time is great, wish i could get out there more :) Edit:, hey fong, been thinking about your...

Ah looks like im not the only one that's had a bad run of waves lately. Every time in the last month or so that there's been a decent wave, im at work FFS. The more bad waves you get, the closer you get to good waves i guess :wink: . Even though i knew it was crap, i still went and checked this morn...

Just needs a leash plug

Im almost finished my latest, a 6'5'' diamond tail single fin. 14'' nose x 20.5 ( halfway ) x 15'' tail x 3''. After a stuff up with the hotcoat ( i forgot the surfacing agent D'OH!! ), it took a while to get the bottom flat. Not the greatest sanding job, but it'll do. Here's a pic. You can see its ...

surftech

Hey bumfluff, i tried a 6'6'' byrne mullet a few weeks back. I usually ride a 6'2'' x 22'' x 3'' thick twin keel that has a 6oz bottom and a double 6 deck. It is not a light board bt it floats and paddles great. The byrne floated great and paddled great as well, but was too twitchy for me, i didn;t ...

Hey mark, i like forward widepoints. But im more of a front foot surfer ( more carve than snap, on the rare days when im surfing alright haha ). My nugget project has the widepoint 4'' behind centre, so that'll be interesting. And my latest single ( just installed the box, just gotta sand and do the...

Im in the same boat as sean, 12hr shifts, Unreal, i think after taking all my holidays, i work 157 odd days a year. I work weekends ans nights, so i get plenty of opportunities to surf. I would absolutely struggle to go back to 7am-3pm. It does suck working nights sometimes, but weekends dont bother...

I'm never gunna hang 10, or 5 or even 1 on the boards I've got! Just this morning, i got my toes maybe 3/8'' from the nose on my 6'2'' twin keel. Not sure why, but in slow small waves i find getting my front foot close to the nose isn't that hard on this board. Might have something to do with a 16'...

Hey pridmore, dare i say the "N" word, nugget??. Even a more refined nugget?, with a single fin box, as well as 2 sets of rail fins??, so you have the option of 1,2,3,4,5 fins??. Just a thought mate. If you need a thruster sized centre fin that fits a longboard box i have two from a few 80's thruste...

I used to patch up my old busted minimal with aryldite. Worked fine. Just sand it first. Probably best to get a real repair kit, but if you've got aryldite and you're not fussy, use it.

I was probably 3'' off pulling off a cheater 5 on my twin keel today. Full little wave on the way in, and i just kept creeping up, i can usually get to 6'' easy, but today i was very close to getting the toes over. I find it easier on my backhand too for some reason. I reckon one day i'll get them o...

7s

Haha nah not gunna do that mate!, i think its easier to make a new board than to modify an existing one.

Rooster, 100kg's for the 7'3'' might be a bit too much. They are qutie flat though, so it might be ok. Depends on how paddle fit you are.

epoxy

It's ok to glass PU with epoxy resin. Also, epoxy is lighter, and, im told, you use less, so it ends up lighter. You would think that would be an easy way for guys who have been doing PU/POLY for years to try the epoxy resin, but you hardly see boards made that way for sale. In wollongong anyway. I ...
