Re: Beer for Boards ...

I know it's a long way from where you are, and probably not exactly what you're after, but there's a shaper up on the central coast that often sells shaping clinics. From memory he charges about $250, then supervises while you shape your blank, then if you want you can pay the extra and get it glass...

Re: local shapers vs big names..

For the record i like your board Daryl... nice and big, bet it's a great paddler. Noticed the single fin box... do you mix the fin combo's up much? What have you tried so far?

Re: local shapers vs big names..

Daryl, you're right mate, I am a dickhead, but there's no need to yell... Firstly, i'm not deaf, and secondly, It's not going to change the shit pictures :wink: Just relax... take some more pics that aren't so fuschia HUGE and maybe they might fit on the average screen. As it stands i have my laptop...

Re: NO TOXIC SHIP

Shame it's not closer to the beach... get the best of both worlds then... Nice reef break when it's rough and a good dive when it's flat... No doubt it'll be great for fishing too once it gets some growth on it. Next thing you know, this bunch will start a group to stop people wearing suncream, and ...

Re: local shapers vs big names..

I reckon that's why Kelly decided to start shaping his own boards in the first place... Probably figured "If Al doesn't give a f#@k anymore, then i guess i'm gunna have to ! " the pics of the FAT Board suck... worst i've seen... nice blue colour is about all you can see... or have i had too much to ...

Re: Jackson Biscuits

I thought it about Mark... BIG TIME. It was a very aethetically pleasing board. I want a board with 5 fin plugs in a 6'5 rounded pin. A 6'4 Squash tail straight thruster was just a little too far from what i had in mind. And i want to be able to ride a few before committing the $$$$. I don't have an...

Re: Jackson Biscuits

I went to Aloha Manly and took a 5'8 Channel Islands Biscuit for a test ride today. It was 1-2ft Max onshore mush at manly/queenscliff. Weren't many surfable waves around. Board paddled well through the water and i wasn't up to my armpits in water when waiting for sets. I'd need the 5'10 if i was go...

Re: help me become a mal rider.

You made a very good point Wanderer. The last time i was down at mollymook i got caught out without a mal because there was swell everywhere. The sets were overhead and a half but tough to get into on the the shorty. The old guys on Mals were dominating the big soft lefts that day surfing exactly ho...

Re: Jackson Biscuits

should i be renaming this thread to "what's Jet's idea of the ultimate quiver?" :oops: I've always loved surfing my 6'8 Waterskate but the "duckdivability" of it is shit house, and this is what pushed me into trying 1000 different boards in the first place. Hiding in the channel at cronulla point wa...

Re: help me become a mal rider.

" get rid of all the other crap and get someone, why not pridmore to shape you a good quality all round thruster."

Hey dinosaur someone sent me these wise words once.
How about looking into this before branching out into something more adventurous? :wink:

Re: Quadfather Project Board....

If the board's still in cronulla, any chance of a wave? I'm off work from Wednesday to Saturday and could organise delivery somewhere between Cronulla and the Gong.

Either way it's no dramas.

Re: Jackson Biscuits

Mark. When it comes to skill...i'm a pretty shit surfer. But i love it just as much as the next realsurfer and just want to get a little better... So i'm thinking if i take some of the variables out of what's under my feet then i might be able to concentrate on where i'm surfing on the wave to get t...

Re: Jackson Biscuits

IGGY and CPT. I see where you're coming from, but i should be a little clearer, I've currenlty got a few boards that i tend to ride in similar conditions. 9ft Modern Contour Stringer (a must for 1-2ft crumblers) 6'8 Miller Waterskate (great for 3-4ft crumblers) 6'2 Firewire Dominator (2-4ft when it'...

Jackson Biscuits

Has anyone ridden a Jackson Biscuit?

They look a little more performance orientated than the Al Merrick ones.

Been thinking of selling up most of my quiver and sticking with the same board to improve my surfing.
