Re: Single fin shortboards

The less effort, more relaxed you are, and more subtle you surf it the better it responds. It forces you to strip down any superfluous movement and really focus on the wave. You just articulated the biggest learning of my single fin tangent. And I can't wait to get my big red bastard down to bells ...

It's low, rolled. Bit of an edge to it but Nothing too sharp. The overall rail on the board is fairly thin-blade like but not sharp edged if that makes sense.
Had a chance to surf it? How does it go?

Re: Midlengths

Where's it for sale, I'd love that board. Beaches or points i reckon it's a great shape for all waves that aren't too steep on the take off.

Re: Modern Planing hulls

It's funny. Everytime I think about getting a short (as it sub 6'0) shortboard model, the surf pumps (this arvo at the point was the best I've seen for years. 3-5Ft 16secs south swell barrels), and I realise what a shit paddler I am and how I rely on volume and length to get in. Only made a few dro...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Sounds like an mph would be good for paddle training. The normal 6'0 would paddle like a canoe after a couple of weeks on a harder paddling board.

If it gets too hard to paddle back I'll get off and swim!

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Feedback from my neighbor with one Highly recommends as Really liked the speed and ride. Paddling in open water was a bit of a chore but not a real problem 95% of his surfs are beaches Thanks for that. Paddling is one of my biggest concerns with something that short. Guess I'll have to go down the ...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Yeah getting to Gerringong is a bit of a mission. Hard to get a day to yourself with a young family.
Might do a ring around though.

Modern Planing hulls

I've recently turned my attention to the firewire EVO. By all indications, it seems a 5'6 is the recommended size for someone of my size and experience. I'm 5'10 x 80kg, intermediate. Normal shorty is a 6'0 x 19.6 x 2.52 (31.3L) thruster. The recommendation is: if you're in between sizes, go the big...

Re: Eggs - how do you like them?

Haha. I rode my Takayama Egg this morning in good head and a half. I've come to the conclusion that the wider nose (not near as wide as a mal) is just getting in the way too often and is not doing anything useful. So it won't be taken to Indo again and all that roll and vee make it a bit slow in Pe...

Re: Midlengths

I've stopped surfing quads for now. The last time i had a good surf on a quad was a few years ago when I had my More Quadfather. The McKee setup. I find that I like larger front fins and smaller rears. when I bought the Elfuego second hand recently I started out in 2-3ft with MR TFX fronts and the m...

Re: Midlengths

After nick mentioning something about using the smallest fins you can, I ordered some tiny fins to see if I can get the mid length jd to work in everyday waves. Feels a big long/stiff if the waves are weak, but I generally like big fins, pc-7 and gx rears. Spent too much time on fishy wide tails ma...

Thanks for the offer but I suspect we are several 100kms apart. Appreciated though.
