Re: Midlengths

One of the locals up here loves those zig fins.
He's a tech lover. Has a trace on his board. Reckons he uses his trace in combination with zig fins to dial in the exact fin setup when he gets new boards.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Looked at some Patagonia wet ties today in the city. Wow, they are expensive. Yeah, but it's made from mystical wetsuit sheep raised on 100% Stoke enriched organically grown grass grown high on a Peruvian mountain. And apparently work pretty good too I have a Patagonia wetsuit sheep, it's a 4/3 and...

Sounds like not a huge adjustment either.
We'll see how things go on my next few surfs.
I can't surf tomorrow, and it looks like we're in for a bit of a flat spell from friday.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You had a good run Iggs. Was DOH+ here today. No doubt we'll be seeing you in the nulla some time soon. Looking forward to casting the eye over your new single. I don't surf the point that often, but I'd be keen to take the new single out in some 4-6 foot surf. I love the wave but it all gets a bit...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I had a blue and gold O'Neill in 1983. Go Parra. Think it was the Neck Chaffer 2000 model. Am noticing a lot more Patagonias around. Saying that you could wear a 2 ml springy in Sydney today. Last week I'd have agreed. I almost dusted off the 2x2 back zip it was that warm. I really noticed the hole...

Surely they'd be loads of whiting and salmon lurking around in those gutters.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I've got one on order. I'm a large short and Patagonia completely sold out of their yulex R1 (3/2) suits this winter in a few sizes. I'll let you know what I think after a few surfs. I've been in ONeill steamers since I started surfing in 2008, this is the first time I've given another brand of ste...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I'm taking a big bite that's for sure. Maybe more than I chew.
30.5L lowest volume by a mere .5L
5'5 shortest by an inch. Had a few waves on a 5'6 webber mini fish. Never really gave it a proper chance as the super flat rocker wasn't my cup of tea.
Hopefully get in tomorrow arvo.

Re: Modern Planing hulls

to be brutally honest here, the MPH are really advanced surfboards for highly skilled surfers and are likely to retard your surfing if you don't fit that category. Thanks Steve, I appreciate the heads up. I don't fit into that category at all, far from it. It's too late now as I picked up the board...
