Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

I put those MR fins in my new shorty, didn't really like them. Stuck the Large AM thrusters back in. Worth a shot. Good news is, I've got a nice set of fins in the bucket. May need to save some dollars for a swallowtailed flyer twin. Still stinging for a twinny. Been frothin over the MR site. The r...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I've got one of the 2/2 short sleeve steamer synchros. Back zip. Keeps the sun off in summer. Not geared for warmth, however I reckon the long sleeve 3/2 would be a better buy, especially the chest zip.

Might give it a crack and see.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Hey guys, Been a bit unlucky getting my hands on a Patagonia suit this winter. Had look at the Needs essentials site but they are out of stock until the 17th Oct. Looking at getting a $250 suit to get me through the winter. Winter's over. :-o Winter may be but the water temp wont rise for a while. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a few nice ones friday arvo at the point.
Today was too big, wobbly, and crowded for me so I took my kids to the spring fair.

Be careful out there today there's a bit of size around

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Surfed the EVO out at the point the other morning. 3-4ft full high tide. Bit of power. Had it set up as a quad with PC Carver Large fronts and some shapers core lite rear quads. Didn't enjoy it. Felt skatey. Didn't like it. I've put carver fronts and a large AM rear in the centre box for next time. ...

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

Every now and again I think I should've gone with a bonzer instead of my big red 6'8 PCC single. A round tail Russ short really would be nice. Even a 6'6 maybe.

Re: Midlengths

Assuming the Bonzer would be your board for the bigger cleaner stuff. Correct, so I want a quad/2+1 for a bit more snap in beachies. Considering Goddard, Outer Island or perhaps a Christensen Nautilus, which is a stretched out quad fish. The agony of choice?!? For the dollars, you can't go past PCC...

Re: Midlengths

Toots, Where do you surf? What do you weigh? When do you usually surf the bonzer. Assuming the Bonzer would be your board for the bigger cleaner stuff. Then I reckon for smaller junkier waves it's be going a 7'6-7'10 PCC midlength like my green one or going the Jye Burns Crossbreed (haven't ridden o...

Re: Midlengths

i thought the fish thing had been back in vogue for a year, hence the firewire go fish? Too slow if you ask me. But they'll still sell a few. They aren't stupid. They put Rob on a fkn 5'2, he goes and shreds on it. Then average c&$ts try a size up from what robs on, find out its too small then get ...

Re: Fin Construction

Got a set of Medium Large (S6) corelite tri/quads in the EVO I bought second hand the other week. Great size for a 80kg rider. Super light, good flex in the tip. Stiff base. Anything more techie than that is wasted on me. My favourites over the years have been PG7's in my 6'8 waterskate. MRTFX (tri)...

Re: Fiji - Denarau in August

Stuart was running the boat the first time we went out. Really worked everything for the trip well. Even gave my son his board to surf Cloudbreak as the rental wasn't that high performance. weather is unpredictable I accept that. Stu did seem like a top end bloke, which is why I'm able to keep an o...

Re: Fiji - Denarau in August

They have 2 boats. They we both full. One poor chick was on a "site seeing" trip too. They ended up taking one of the boats back with the poor girl and her partner on it. The rest of us that were hoping for the wind to change stuck it out, but it was all for nothing. I'm trying my best to get them t...
