Re: Hypto Krypto voted "board of the year"

I reckon that stacks of boards from the seventies and eighties are still very relevant and functional for most surfers, as they tend to have more volume and are more user friendly. most surfers aren't surfing up to the standard that would ever see them push their modern HPs type boards to anywhere n...

Re: Hypto Krypto voted "board of the year"

^^ what shearer said (about mostly ridden by kooks), and how they're meant to be ridden (per braithy "smooth flowing turns") = why you most often see the HK punters not being able to surf them. Proliferation of gumby surfers by the hundreds that could Never manage a smooth flowing turn if their life...

Re: skateboarding ...

what would also help is to get used to carving and travelling at speed. doesn't have to be 'bombing downhill' either. pad up and get comfortable at speeds of at least 20kph+ or more if you're willing/able. a smooth basketball court for starters, or gentle hill paved with hotmix, or even spend a morn...

Re: Which board do you hope to surf tomorrow?

It most certainly does. What happened ? Haven't heard from u back in the "racism in surfing" thread. ? U know, the thread where u inadvertently got ur arse handed to u on a plate and proved wrong by say practically everyone ?

Re: Single Fins

I'm totally hooked on the single fin feel. After the last 8 or so weeks on the bonzer riding anything from knee high windswell to double overhead groundswell , and how well it's performed, and the sheer range it can handle - I can't see myself bothering much with thrusters anymore. Three fins, yes. ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I was down just past the far end carpark. They were pretty fast runners, u had to get in early and get across em quick. Stiff offshore and kinda fattish take off meant u couldn't take off deep otherwise u'd get held back and end up too late and behind the section. U had to take off right on the edge...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Greenhills. 4ft plus. Offshore, consistent. Lefts and rights. Some of the rights were running for over 100 metres. Heaps of fun fast sections to beat down, with the odd turn of sorts here and there in the mix.
