Re: 7S Superfish Feedback

Maybe we need a name and shame thread.. Keep the bastards honest i reckon.

I'm in the market for a new 6'3 or 6'4 shorty so it would be nice if someone could PM me so i don't go there.
:shock:

How much does it cost to make you're own board?

One of the guys in the another thread made a comment that he couldn't afford to buy a board so he'll probably have to make his next one. Mabye i'm missing something here, but how can you afford to make you're own board, but not buy one. With all the tools and chemicals needed to make a board. Wouldn...

Re: 7S Superfish Feedback

There's a buzz getting around that people call you Quadmore... :wink: Care to dispell any rumours? :roll: :roll: :roll: Now that i think of it... if you put out a signature model, that'd probably be a good name for it... So no need to hold the naming competition, just cut to the chase and send me th...

Re: Sydney to Lismore Surftrip

Cheers boys. When i mentioned my usual haunts i should've pointed out that my main northern haunt is the Seal Rocks area. I've absolutely fallen in love with the place, and don't even get me started on Pacific Palms Bowlo :wink: Timings are still to be confirmed, but i'll keep ya all in the loop. Ch...

Sydney to Lismore Surftrip

Crowdy Head Scotts Head Minnie Water Angourie (Stop in an check out Pridmore's shop and get a new t-shirt) I'm...

Re: Greg Webber Mini-Fish twinnie

Sorry for the delay gents... At the moment, i'm only really swapping between 3 boards. The 9'0, 6'2 (hogfish), or 6'0. Been surfing the 6'0 mainly. I'll surf the longboard when there's an opportunity to practise noseriding or if it's super crowded, the 6'2 when there's a bit more push in the wave, a...

Re: Greg Webber Mini-Fish twinnie

Yeah i'm hoping the surf picks up on tuesday like it's forecast to so I can get straight back on it. The conditions weren't right for it on Friday when i surfed my M10 Hogfish instead. One another note, my run of bad luck with dings and injuries continues... I've already put two compressions in the ...

Re: Thinking of getting a longboard - suggestions

Have you thought about the Trigger Brothers Stubbie? When i was doing a course down at Westernport, every man and his dog seemed to be on a trigger board... I surf with a guy at Cronulla from time to time and he's on a McTavish Carver, he loves it. I'm with monkey man though... as much as i like rid...

Got pumped a couple of times too which is always good for the soul. Took 3 boards down this morning: Stretch Quad, Hogfish, and Webber Twinnie... 6'2 M10 Hog...
