Jordy at around the 40 - 46 second mark. Highline trim just in front of the pocket, standing parallel and caressing the face. Brilliant.
One of the best things I've seen this year full stop. All class.

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. i'm wanting to experiment with a different technique and material...

Funny how the conversation gets distorted along the way, specially with the $$$.

Jet you can take your boardbag with you, I am taking 2 boards.

Packing tomorrow, flying Monday first thing.

Frothing hard

Sups are like jet skis. Better when they're somewhere else.

Re: Midlengths

They're pretty bloody good value for money those AQSS boards.

Had a chat with a bloke down the beach the other week who was on one of the Takayama scorpion copies. He was stoked with all aspects. Not bad for $399 new.

Re: Fiji - Denarau in August

I thought the exchange rate was much closer to 1:1 Me too. I see that kind of money as reasonable. Average daily wage is F$10 - 30 per day, there's room for a gigantic profit on F$250 for half a day; you could pay 50 fijians half their daily wage rate for the easiest job they are ever going to get ...

Re: Fiji - Denarau in August

Heading there next week from the 14th onwards for 6 days. Organised surf with Fiji Surf Co, 2 mornings. My brother did it 2 weeks ago and he mentioned they have 2 boats , one for less exposed options for beginners to Intermediate type waves if Cloudbreak is 6+ plus. The second boat will always go t...

PNG, but the waves always look shoulder high max
Watch splinters on Netflix..it's about a surf comp over there for locals. Excellent doco. No one will watch it though.
I don't know what Netflix you have but it's not on the Aussie version.
YouTube has a full copy.

Yeah sounds like fkn burglary, but I'm only ever going to go to Fiji once I want to do it the easy way.

Keep an eye out for a bald c&$t with a beard that talks a lot. That's me.

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Guy I know (very good surfer btw) surfs a sci fi now and then. Says it's very quick but too wide in the tail for anything except the tiny stuff. He prefers the Omni to the sci fi. I'll never get a scifi because of that. The evo is wide enough. And I dont really like surfing shortboards when it's th...

If it's big Jet take a chance on Restuarants.

Sack up and go.

Is the take off too steep for a single fin?

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I've been thinking about this. I reckon the best thing to do when exploring these boards for the first time is to keep the fins as neutral as possible. Give yourself time to sus out what the board itself is doing for your surfing. After that, then I reckon you'll be better placed to experiment with ...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I've got the fcs2 large AM Pc (blue black and white). Which is what I ride in my normal shorty. I've just taken the centre fin out and put some AM medium rears (red and white) for my next surf. Honestly, for the waves I ride, I can't see the need for a quad but will try it anyway. The guy I bought t...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I'll give it a crack on a small day and get back to you. My gut feel is that with the wide tail and efficient bottom shape, it'll go well in small stuff. But around here though I normally get on the midlength or longboard in waves that small, I'd rather spend the time learning to nose ride. Especial...
