Re: Where did you surf today ?

Agreed. He does. But sometimes it has a Lord of the Flies feel to it. It’s just a touch cringeworthy at times. That's why I stick it back to the pathetic losers. As they are promoting with school cyber bullying at the moment.....if youre a cnut online your really a Cnut when left to your own device...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

MP was ahead of his time in shaping as well as surfing. Bottom contours and rails were usually pretty sophisticated within the limitations of the design. I read somewhere he started shaping the blanks backwards I.e. Tail to front...to get more tail rocker and less nose lift. Last board of his I owne...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

A lot of single fins back then on the Gold Coast had relatively wide base fins hanging right over the back for hollow waves.

First new board I ever bought was an MP Ski Free Model like the one he rode in MOTE. That was a great board. Rode it into the ground. More of an all round hull design.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Some great boards...some good for doing one thing. The one I got a barrel right through Kirra on was a semi backyard one he made. Funny he used to do the odd bang up out of shop. I had a few hang ups with that board...very down railed with a relatively large round tail but the fin was hanging way ov...

He does venture up to crescent point in peak season but. Forgot about that. It’s sorta like eating Macca’s every day and dining out once a year at Sizzler and really living it up. Mate, I'm 62. You go and surf some grinding reefs for me will you, Jimmy. Get back to me when you're my age. Lucky to s...

Re: 6'9" custom Jim Banks, clean and never ridden

Looks great. That's what I hate about custom boards though. Joe Bloggs would just have to live with it if it wasn't quite right.
