Re: Where did you surf today ?

So. You’ve only got 1.15 early morning to go surfing.

Sorry seems to be some Brain Damage on my part ?

So you’re free (or not) during 5.45-7?

I think I know where you’re referring to. Closeish by to you. I can think of about four spots that should have something

Anyone ridden an MC Red Dingo?
For half the price you could get the equivalent function and performance out of this. Red Dingo would be a fun board. But make no mistake, it’s a souped up mini mal :)

Re: Single fin shortboards

This is probably a nick Carroll question but - why the channels running so far up the board? Just seems that unless you’re winding the board out at top speed on a point break then all that’s going to do is limit the board. The Parmenter way of including channels, in the tail only seems more versatil...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

$1800 shipped? Yeah nah. My late 90’s stick has enough performance built into it already. Good rocker, rolled deck, low boxy rails, single to double concave, lowish volume etc. it surfs more like a shortboard than a mal. Knifey and response and likes turning. If it snapped, I’d like replace it with ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Wanda beach. Little wind effected but some fast overhead walls to tear down. Surfed the 7’6 MINI MALIBU so I could roll in early and take the high line covering ground, then link through the flats into the reform all the way to the beach.

Re: Midlengths

I’d be happy to paddle that thing out 90 % of the time. Just cruise on smaller days, and lay down some rail on bigger days.

Love the look of the Bing Maui Foil https://bingsurf.com/collections/maui-foil “Made famous in 1970 when Bing team rider, Rolf Aurness, won the World Championship of Surfing in Australia, this model is a modern revival designed by Matt Calvani.

Fairy bower and winki. Shoulder high to overhead. Pretty fun. Not too many out. Probs the fourth time I’ve ever surfed it.

Re: Single fin shortboards

Yeah it’s not my cup of tea. I like single fin surfing to look like single surfing. Though he’d probably have shown up any of the contenders in the pro Maldives single fin comps, as they’re all really just surfing thruster lines but with one fin. I’d still be keen to have a go on one. They look pret...

Re: Mentawai quiver.

When we surfed scarecrows it was really fun but kinda wonky with a shifty take off. Telescopes was breaking much better but was crowded and didn’t seem to be picking up as much swell. Hideaways is an epic lefthander. Bulbous with that dreamy sloping wall that peels off all the way into the channel. ...

Re: Single fin shortboards

Hi-perf singles. Polfer Hull Designs. Dude clearly rips but it looks so far removed from single fin lines that I can’t relate it to single fin surfing at all. Moreover it’s thruster lines but looser and tighter in the pocket which is impressive. https://youtu.be/q8xDiRABlmE http://phdsurf.com/about-...
