Re: Where did you surf today ?

Nowhere is worse than Bondi. Don’t kid yourself. And considering there’s been a swell drought for days, then finally some waves, only 12-15 people out on a kilometre long beach is still relatively uncrowded. Had there been more than just one bank working, then the crowd would have been spread out. M...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Surfed garie beach with loof. I surfed my 6’4 single and he was on a nice looking NPJ 8 footer, single fin built for glide and trim. Loof caught a stack of fun peelers. I got a few nice lefts and rights. One left that went all the way to dry sand, with a series of glide run to cutbacks along the wa...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

scam site Jimmy! was that from instagram? Yeah after I bought the pants I put my card on hold just in case. I only know because a mate sent me the link after buying a wettie and then got a call from his bank... totally a scam site. The contact us page and shipping and returns info page has zero inf...

Re: darren longbottom

I bought a Dylan quad through Darren at the time back then. Great board. Darren had posted up a few pics of himself surfing his brother’s quad designs. Some of the lines he was drawing deep in the pocket and off the top was insane. Absolute powerhouse surfer. I was down south coast with a few of the...

Re: post your modern day sickness

I can see the appeal. But I like boards to feel like steady scalpels, not erratic missiles.

Re: post your modern day sickness

Read the review (June 19 or is there a more recent one?). Aside from the warp speed off-the-mark, it sounds just like everything I’d hate in a board - obligated short arc surfing, tricky steering control in turns.

Re: Single fin shortboards

Any idea what the construction quality is like ? Blanks, glassing etc? Even if they’re well priced, it’d be a shame to see one fall apart like an al merrick etc

Re: Single fin shortboards

Here the way the fin box works.. https://youtu.be/3yJosBzdc4Y The board is a mark rabbidge single fin step up. Have had it for a couple of years. Bought cheap off gummie. 6”10 x 20” x 2 5/8”. https://s33.postimg.cc/ozm1n8cdr/1_C73822_B-37_AA-4_AE0-_B800-7_D80_D4952141.jpg https://s33.postimg.cc/k0yj...

Re: Single fin shortboards

The fin box in my 6”10 was coming loose in the board so got a new one fitted. No bolt, just insert the fin and push into place. Dropped the fin size down to a new 7’0 and now set it up as a 2+1, which might give it a bit more range in different waves, for frequent short arc turns, rather than just d...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I want one of these in 6’4 x 19 5/8 x 2 5/8. They look right up my street. but don’t want to shell out the grand a half cash for it. https://www.mctavish.com.au/collections/ramblers https://s33.postimg.cc/dfywf90lb/5_A842_C49-_AD2_B-4_A67-_BA5_D-1_DDA2689_BEE7.jpg 6'6? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It was fun. All it needed was a few degrees of east in the swell and it would’ve been a whole different picture.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So did you drive down to Garie again? Looks crap. It’s a day for spots like green island, merewerther, Ulladulla bombie. Not garie, nor Bondi, nor much of anywhere. Though while it wasn’t ideal (straight south swell) it was uncontested. Mostly empty. Fast, shifty, but still managed to pick off a fa...
