So, we can expect a flood of them on gumtree? Hopefully a mblv and/or chunky 3 fin egg, blue tint for both please, and preferably priced for quick sale. Pick up close to my place would seal the deal
me too!

Nick, how long before we get a breakaway surf competition run by surfers?

Please don't tell me never.
That's every weekend at most spots in Cronulla from memory :-D-:

I scored a great ride on my middy yesterday. Long left with a pocket that wouldn't quit.
i'm actually looking forward to summer - which i never do. My new midlength has been a revelation. You goofy Davros?

Re: Kelly's wave.

I've tried to find a similar sport to compare with; it is maybe similar to skaters who stay in the same park their whole lives, but even they have the benefit of different objects and runs etc. Maybe the same half-pipe? . playing a golf course vs a driving range. You are still hitting the golf ball...

oldman invokes Baudrillard :roll: ... soul surfing and the natural divide...taking a few sets on the head... maybe i've missed something here, but what's the beef with wave pools? what? the fiscal imperatives? so they're the pornhub of the local beachie!

Re: Kelly's wave.

Steve helped me get my fin money back as did many here. Webber did nothing to help me (to be fair, i never asked him for help) - but i'm siding with Steve.

Re: Midlengths

What a difference a fin makes. I got a new midlength back in April - a gato heroi space pig 7'6 with a narrowed down tail. It has super thin rails and a big rolled v underneath. First few surfs, was not feeling it. Felt like it was dragging an anchor and board just didn't turn. Shelved it most of wi...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

It's currently about 2ft or so in the illawarra... Haha drove home via the beaches as usual and didn't see much. This arvo is supposed to pick up though I think, going by the forecast. Warilla had something breaking in front of the clubhouse. Port had bugger all and blown to bits as you'd expect. M...

Re: Fin Construction

I wish i could tell the difference - but i don't think i can in thrusters and quads. Other than size and shape, plus weight - i find it difficult. I can feel the difference in single fins though - especially volan.

Re: Midlengths

I really like having a mid length in the quiver - especially in summer. The first one i got was a vbowls a few years back and it really changed my line of thinking. It was stringerless so i could foresee a disaster in anything over a few feet - i got rid of it. Most recently i was riding a hull. Cer...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

Yeah i keep hearing how wide it is - but compared to some i've ridden, it pales in comparison. I really like it as an all rounder and it goes well in bigger waves too. Not as fast as other boards i've ridden, the CV2 comes to mind, but maybe faster than your average HPSB. I got it because i was comp...
