Re: Quiver thread

Hey Beery, the pod found me & I am glad that it did. Batoes the bonzer prophet had been talking about them for ages when I found it secondhand in a local surf shop. Shaped by malcolm 3 months earlier & looked like it had been ridden 3 times so I figured I could sell it for what I bought it for. It's...

Re: Quiver thread

It feels good when things come together after tweaking your board Agreed, I recently put a bamboo bonzer fin (thanks Batoes!) into my pod & moved it 1 cm further forward than where the previous fin was positioned & the difference is incredible.

Re: Quiver thread

Looks beautiful toots, does the v stringer Have noticbly more flex than a conventional centre stringer Only before the glass goes on, noticeable flex comes with the carbon tail.WHOOSH, the speed and drive is truly TURBO! I haven't ridden or owned "the ultimate in flex" as Mitchell describes a V2 + ...

Re: Gary McNeill

I agree. It is a very fast board. I ride it at mystics when it's chest high and over. It's the type of board where you don't think you can make a section and next thing you know you're in flat water, laying a rail to get back to the foam ball. I've made a few really good waves out there. The single...

Re: Gary McNeill

I ve had this idea for about 18 months about a long fish, they re popular with the seppos in the 8ft range as a longboard replacement. Because Gary's boards are so refined my idea would be a 6'8 cv2 long fish twinny with a trailer option just in case, for a light weight like me in good waves. Paddle...

Re: Single fin shortboards

Just stepped out of my garden gate and my next door neighbours truck is there with four brand new Brewer single fin pintail guns in the tray: looked like a 7', 7'6, 8' and 8'6. All full gloss, three red, one yellow, white rails with a black pintail . Just for the record, let it be known that I left...

Re: Quiver thread

I was in Brazil over summer & was chatting to an interesting shop keep who was a former longboard national champ etc he showed me a surfboard made by the SUP company "starboard". It was incredibly light & supposedly super durable, I haven't seen them over here tho. I agree with boo, rails are everyt...
