Re: Fantasy surfer comp

I can't figure out how to create group in the WSL fantasy group app. Anyone know how to do it?

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

Took out the egg yesterday morning at the local point. 3-4 foot clean. Took it easier and didn't push the bottom turn, just eased into it - what a buttery board it is. Smooth, forgiving, still got speed to burn. Only my 3rd time out on it, and I've still got some major adjustments on the cutback. I'...

Re: bonzers.....the quad fad is over

Confession - I've ended up with TSND 7'4 egg. They accepted a better price, it's in better condition than the 6.5/10 would suggest, a couple of dings that haven't been colour matched properly. Did it on Friday, it happened in a whirlwind weak moment, where someone really wanted an 8' DVS All rounder...

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). Today ...

Re: Jeffreys Bay Pro 2015

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.

or even fallen backward a bit. Yep, wtf is with that. Hasnt happened for a while, but christ, its a bag of shit when it does,. Had the worst case of that recently. Took a surfing lesson which was great. Video footage was shown, with some screaming examples of errors that were simple to fix with per...

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.

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: Midlengths

How do you reckon the Soar twin plus nubster would go with your old DVS 8' All rounder?
