I'd rather be a cashed up older novice than a broke cranky old fart.

Re: C - Drive Fins

I've got medium fronts and Glass flex GX single foils in my quadfather at the moment and there was a noticeable difference in rail to rail transitions for me. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some rears though... Have you guys actually bought them separately or did you get them on loan? Al...

Re: Mini Simmons

Stuart Paterson at PCC surfboards has shaped a few recently, has one you can demo, it's about 5'10 x 22 x 2 5/8 from memory. Diverse is doing them too.
My mate took one for a test ride a while back... Great paddler, fast and loose as a goose....

After going from near top of the range to a mid range suit... think i'll notice much of a dif...

Re: made my own heated wetsuit

Here i was thinking i was about to get some when we both looked at eachother, sniffed the air, and in unison said "i think i/you need a shower" and besides....

Re: Where did you surf today ?

If i wasn't living in a rental i'd be doing it for sure. Looks so hard, but would be so rewarding when you start to get the hand of it. Funny you mention it really... I've been interested in how the plug is going to be fixed even though it's not the first time i've done it, so i spent most of the ar...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Thruster/Quads with 5 Fin Plugs

What kind of waves will you be surfing your new board in Topher? Got any particular shapes in mind?

Cronulla surf design has a 6'0 Dominator demo you should be able to get your hands on.

Re: Here sharky sharky

You'd have to help your mate. It's instinct. When the shit goes down, people help each other out. It makes perfect evolutionary sense. In my opinion, you're either born with it or you're not... Situations like this really bring out peoples' true colours... Most of us will never know how we will rea...

By the sounds of things i should buy a lotto ticket... I got talking to a guy in the surf at boneyards a few months ago about those shapers x-rated fins I bought. He'd just bought a set of the size 5's and thinking of buying the size 7's but wasn't sure if they were going to work for him or not as h...
