Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

Not to hijack, but i bought the richter 2nd hand. 5'6, 18 3/4, 2 1/4. Interesting board thus far. It has both thruster and quad set-up and i use it as a quad with the powerdrive fins that tomo designs. So far i've ridden it in a few conditions. It paddles quite well for such a tiny board, although i...

Re: Twin fins as go-to boards

I think Akila Aipa does some nice modern twins that Rasta rode for a while - Gary McNeil does some of his boards as performance twins. The only real twin i have is my dim-sim, although i did try the tomo richter i have as a twin. It way too loose and skatey. His V3s look like they'd be a solid twin ...

Re: review of Mccoy Astron Zot

I think i was fairly clear in my reply that i'm just not man enough to ride a pink board cuttle - that is the sole reason i sold my mackie bonzer :lol:
But i appreciate the offer and as i've said if the board was in magenta - it would be a done deal.

Re: Mini Simmons

Mick Mackie does them. Bloody versatile design - just been riding my dim-sim with traditional keels - changes the feel of the board completely. More hold in bigger waves, similar speed, less turn though.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Went down the cheap patagonia path via the internet - bloody warm, comfortable and soooo much cheaper than $750 for one here. Now let's just pray the seams hold..........
Have noticed plenty of cheap ebombs on ebay from aussie sellers - not as cheap as $190 though - what a bargain!

Re: backfoot placement

It's a bad club to be in Morgan....i snapped a mal many years ago surfing Windy Point at Cronulla....what was i thinking on a mal out there? Serves me right. I like the idea of the sim though, resurrect at least half of her!

Re: review of Mccoy Astron Zot

Had a chat wth Marc and the McCoy showroom at Manly closes on the 30th and is moving to Port Macquarie, where Marc will continue to run sales etc. I don't think he'll mind me attaching a few pics of him shredding on that big swell that hit last week - doesn't surf his age, that's for sure :lol: Also...

Tail pad curse alert - since posting about how important they are, part of my Balin tail pad came off my alien yesterday, only two weeks old.... :twisted: Balin are on the 'list'.

My daily driver is a 5'8 or 5'10 - after something from 5'2-5'6 - so it will likely be a bit too big for me - thanks anyway :D

Re: Misfit Surfboards

Yeah - not that keen to go out and buy one just yet. I already have a dim sim for smaller days and walled up waves, but i'm after something with some zip for the smaller suckier days. I have a break where i'm at that produces sucky barrels no matter the size and the sim can go up to about 2ft on thi...

Misfit Surfboards

Has anyone had any experience with these boards? The reason i posted under alts - i was specifically thinking about their small wave specials - the flair, the flow, the sk8tey and the fish.
