Re: Jeffreys Bay Pro 2015

I remember Fong did a test, putting a current through his tinny (I'm not making this up am I ???) He mentioned that sharks in close proximity were repelled, but that it initially attracted a number of sharks. I've heard this from a few sources, the last of which was Paul de Gelder at a recent speech...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I decided to pick up a second steamer and Need are all sold out. Found an O'Neill Fuze 3/2 for $160 delivered from Hyper.co.nz - they're on special at the moment.

Re: Ask Carroll

That was a live - "We are greater than I" moment as J-Dub paddled out to help his mate. As a piece of reality tv , it had more suspense than a Hitchcock classic - for all money, I thought we'd see blood in the water after that wave passed through (Just to clarify, I'm so glad that we didn't).

That was mental - I thought for all money he'd at best get bitten. As that wave passed through the line up and he disappeared from view - One lucky fella.

There might be something to the yum yum yellow theory after all.

Re: Midlengths

Saw an XF webber diamond at the beach this morning. Felt good under the arm, lots of volume in the 6'8. The owner was late 50's - more than competent, fit the bill perfectly. He was stoked with the board. He was running a regular thruster set up. Best part was that he picked it up for $499 at Toukle...

Re: Midlengths

The 4a is 9". Works well. I now have an alkali Lovelace in there - 8.5". To be honest I can't tell much of a difference between the 2. Not like the difference between a 4a and 4c.

8'2 - it's a sherbert, a bigger version of the V-Bowls with a squarer nose. This is it here: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/a0/08/43/a0084394a62b8a9b48bbc467e0f099e1.jpg It takes a few waves to get used to it cos the deck is dead flat, but it taught me to appreciate rails. I got it second...

Re: Midlengths

Unlike a hull, the V-Bowls has a hard edge in the tail - best of both worlds. Easy to ride, difficult to master, but a load of fun in the right conditions.

Good call, someone mentioned to me that the MR twins went well with it. From memory you had a lot of love for bonzer side bites ??

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Why is his motto "designs to free your mind", but there aren't too many open minds amongst the McCoy crew? I've also heard the crew blow up over Cheyne Horan, how he has his own board designs. The common argument is that a surf team is like Formula 1 - you wouldn't buy an F1 car from the driver, you...

They have them on the cenny coast at Adrift - a coloured board was 1100. A clear would be less. How does it compare to a Bonzer - for price and then for functionality?

Re: snapper pro

Nice writing Braithy, I just read your peace on the live webcast for the ASP. Funnily enough, I forgot about the WSL event - got to see the Duct Tape Invitational streaming through Swellnet instead - with decent waist high waves, ridden on craft designed to excel in just those conditions.
