Re: Forefronts of board design

Like the look of them all, the webber sounds too good to be true. I find myself reaching for my fat-bat for most conditions now, and more standard shorty quad when the waves get a bit better. They're great fun to ride. I think these type of boards are going to keep getting more popular, fun, easier ...

Bought a slighty longer step-up board off the rack a while back and it was a dog for me, lent it to a mate who loved it and bought it off me. Anyway I reckon off the rack boards can be great, my fav board was a ne...

Re: apology not accepted ...

I agree, you got nothing to be ashamed of. What do people do out there when the person in the lineup doing the snaking and dropping in is one of the ones ripping the most AND is the meanest/toughest looking prick out there? I tend to get the shits, have a little stare (not too angry, seen too many p...

decent East swell on monday?!

Could be a pretty big E swell on Monday!??! Shame about the 25knot SE'er.
Chance of some epic waves??? Surely the odd spot would have some of the best waves we've seen in a while!?
