I find it has a lot more speed on smaller and fuller waves too than my other boards. I also find this funny thing where if you go straight it's easy to lose balance, I need to keep the thing turning from rail to rail to keep it under control. I'm not sure, but I think it likes to have a rail buried...

I like ASL its funny appeals to my inner adolescent. And the poster girls are tops I like to put them on the wall at home so my wife can rip them down. Used to enjoy tracks until you guys exposed it as a sinister front for gangster localism. And I saw one too many shots of tow ins to waves that are ...

I run like a maniac to the waters edge to warm up my feet. Thats the worst part of the early for me, that and running back up the beach after the surf. A couple of years ago I bought some booties for rock jumps up north in winter. Now I always wear 'em for the early surf. Cold sand. Warm feet. No w...

'put the board down sideways' :?:
I don't get it. I always push the nose down and head for bottom. Is it recommended to tilt to the side as well?

Mind blowing at Bondi yesterday morning. Never seen so many dolphins up so close. Uge reckons there were 200; they were chasing salmon (the ones jumping out of the water around me were about a foot long!) Awesome sight, big stoke all day. Made up for the crap waves....

Happy memories for me. I think I scored the best waves of my life in Europe. I hired a crappy little car in Lisbon and got a tent, did the spain to france coast, slept on the beach this was 10yrs ago now but quite a community of travelling surfers at the time. I was there for the summer. Crowds not ...

I'm 80 kg and ride a 6'4 shortboard.
I bought a 6'6 twinny. I think if I had my time again I would go shorter like a 6'2: as I'm mainly using it in the small stuff.
But I repeat:
GO FOR IT!!!!!!

Go for it dude. I learnt to surf on an MR twinnie and on my 40th birthday a couple of years ago I took it out. Yellow, heavy but surfed like a skateboard on an ice rink! (in a good way) That lit a fire and I have since got a new 1980 retro model. I love it when its sub 3ft (no good over 6 foot). Pad...
