Re: Where did you surf today ?

North Cronulla. 2-3ft the odd bigger one. big hightide going low. Junky almost nice swell but weak untill late and a bit wonky. Maybe it was that i was riding a small shortboard. although im liking my stretch now, so nice and easy to carve, hit the lip etc compared to fish/mals etc. Didnt like the ...

Re: Greg Webber Mini-Fish twinnie

I really love trying out new boards, most of them have been bargains, or the fruits of my buying and selling of boards. The only ones that were bought new were the Miller, Modern, Firewire and Webber. They've been more panic buys than anything... I met my girlfriend about 10months ago and knew that ...

Re: Greg Webber Mini-Fish twinnie

Just got a 6'0 webber mini fish... Had a 3 hour surf this morning at the Alley in Cronulla . Got a bunch of waves and did some nice turns... I'm not a very good surfer but i reckon it's a sweet board... It's my favourite board so far. The quiver had really come along since i started surfing 2 years ...

Re: Channel Islands Biscuit or Fishcuit

Well i didn't mean to start any arguements! Sheesh you boys are a bit touchy today... I had a short night at work and came back to all this... Well on the way to work I gave Jackson Surfboards a call, sounds like I could save about $100 if go with a most of the local guys... I've had a few dings rep...

Channel Islands Biscuit or Fishcuit

Just wondering if anyone out there has tried out a Channel Islands Biscuit or Fishcuit. Looking at the 5'10 fishcuit for something different. I'm 5'10 and 80kg. I'd really like some opinions on how they go... I can't get a demo anywhere. Kinda sucks when you're about to spend $820 on a stock board....

Re: Best wetsuit you have had

I bought second hand O'neill Mutants, 3x2 and 4x3 haven't worn the 4x3 yet, but the 3x2... unreal... been wearing it since march down here in vicco... lets no water in EVER. It's a massive step up from the mid-range quiksilver i now have for a spare... Feels like i'm not even wearing a wetty by comp...

Re: Meyerhoffer?

I surfed out at Phillip Island on Saturday at Shelly Beach. As i was getting out an older guy paddled out a board that looked similar to a Meyehoffer. Shaped by OKE (VIC shaper i think), it was a peanut shaped thing, about 9ft, and with a massive flyer in it. It had a pretty sweet paint job too. I m...

Re: Miller Powerglide

I got Grant to fill the nose concave in with black as it's one of the major design features in the board and i thought i'd like to highlight it. If you're not sure what i'm talking about, have a look at his website: waterskatesurfboards.com I know how silly it sounds referring one shaper to another'...

Re: Miller Powerglide

The tails fixable, but there's no way i'm going quietly with regards to the damage done to the nose. I must admit though, the photos i posted aren't the best. The nose is such an integral part of this board and there's no way i'm going to put up with a "fixed" board seeing it's only 2 surfs old. Esp...

Re: Miller Powerglide

I'll get the pics sorted out in the next couple of days. Went home for the weekend and left my camera at home. The Powerglide went really well on the days i surfed in Westernport bay. They were pretty gutless and not very steep, so digging the nose wasn't an issue. I was surprised how well in duckdi...

Re: Miller Powerglide

Scored overhead waves in Westernport yesterday, in between honeysuckle and Pt Leo surfclub.

I surfed for 3 hours! Can't believe how crowded it got.

Miller Powerglide

Got my new Miller Powerglide (7'0 x 22 1/8 x 2 7/8) the other day and got a few waves at Point Leo. I can't help but want to tell the whole whole everytime i get a new board, whether it's new, or just new to me. This one's both. I've got a few months down here on the Mornington Peninsula and hoping ...

Get a powerglide.

I too recommend the Miller Powerglide. They come standard at 7'0, but i've heard of him doing up to 8'0. Give him a call, he'll point you in the right direction, great man to deal with from start to finish. I picked one up from Grant Miller the other week. It sat in my room for 10days while it cured...

Re: Where are all the board pics gone?

Well it seems no one could be F#@ked posting any pics... either that, or everyones thrown their boards out.
