Re: First quad feedback

It wasn't dealing with Mark that I was worried about. It's just rear for me to buy anything off the net that i can't see and touch first. That's what i meant in that respect.
Anyway, there finally some surf on the point... I'm on it.

Re: First quad feedback

pretty much. I sold my 6'0 Mini fish the other day. Still got my Tuflite 6'2 M10 Hogfish for sale. Once that's gone i'll be where i want to stay for a while. I had a look at my quiver and it dawned on me that i didn't really have anything that resembled a normal shortboard shape. All my boards (as p...

Re: First quad feedback

I ordered a 6'4 Quadfather yesterday! I'm 5'10 and around 80kgs, i've gone with a Round tailed 6'4 x 19 5/8 x 2 5/8 McKee M5 setup after a good chat and a few emails with Mark. Hopefully young CP will be able to put some of his artwork on there. I'm living down in Cronulla, and this is the first tim...

Re: FCS Quads - What are you using ?

SF4 Fronts and GL rears. Put them in my dominator the other day... feels like a different board.

Re: Summer Lovin...boards for mush

Jesus christ there's blokes on here listing a quiver of half a dozen new boards, talking about the next ones they're gonna get. Then in the next post they mention they can hardly surf. I fall (pun intended) into that category, and there's a good chance that comment was solely directed at me seeing ...

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...
