Re: The Good Luck A Number One McCoy Thread

Just finished reading this thread - there are some guys that put up vids on the mccoy riders facebook page. Some of them surf well. Others, not so much. Single fin McCoy potbelly in tiny lined up waves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bNeyylEF_c Seriously - McCoy boards are different, but good fun....

The first two were brilliant once on the wave, but good lord, paddling was hard work - not getting onto waves - but just moving about. The MPH design is weird like that. You c...

When i realised how crazy people got over them (and i did receive some really crazy pm's). I just deci...
