Re: Modern Planing hulls

For sure - that's what i did with a few i've had, but the sci fi was really fussy. I tried all my usuals, but just found the board was not really drivey enough. Went with quad - it got better, but was shoulder hopping. After many years on quads, i've gone back to thrusters, which seems to be better ...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I'll give it a crack on a small day and get back to you. My gut feel is that with the wide tail and efficient bottom shape, it'll go well in small stuff. But around here though I normally get on the midlength or longboard in waves that small, I'd rather spend the time learning to nose ride. Especia...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

I've always wanted one but for smaller days. This review peaked my interest a while back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GYxSEfRsKE&t=210s

How small do you think it can handle Jet?

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....

Watch it swiv, the wide tail police will be here in a minute shouting that you need four fins on a tail that big. The arseholes There are a few polls on the Firewire forum about the Evo's and fins. I've read that some punters have had some success with a twin + 1 setup. I never would have thought a...

Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

Apparently there is a 'matt Tatum' who is authorised to shape mccoys (or iaw his designs) Ive seen a few places with 'nuggets'; which seems to have become a generic name for thst shape. Guess it's a kind of homage Yeah i see - http://www.fortytoes.com/ They seem to do some of the surfboard agency b...

Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

It's odd that there's a US maker who used to have an association with Geoff but doesn't now, but still uses McCoy logos without Geoffs consent. That's what he's saying in that article. And even more so there are copiers who declare Geoff shaping to be quite average but his designs to be good enough...

Re: Modern Planing hulls

So i have ridden a few tomo boards. A psycho 5'0, 18, 2 1/4 twin fin, a richter, 5'2, 17 3/4, 2 1/4 and a v4 5'4, 19, 2 3/8. 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...
