I used to have a Robert Coneelly a million years ago that I think was called a hull. It had chamfered rails and a big concave.

Great sound track.

As I said in the other section the age of aquarius on the nth coast.
How many people decided to move there because of these movies?

Still they look like they were having fun.

Likewise, Iggy. I have had heaps of great days there but never on a mal. I've also been trying to surf the pass on a mal for years. I haven't seen it breaking in ten years. Always end up at Wategos :? I know the Pass is a traffic jam but half the fun is retracing old steps with the right equipment f...

I had a really thin bear board years ago and it used to nose ride really well. Ijust wish my current mal had a heavier glass job so I could keep it for ever. Well, why not strip off the wax and go buy some cloth and resin? Kind of an intersting theory Hawkeye, but have seldom known anybody to do. I...

Yeah, like Longygrom and a few others I just reckon the title for this area of the site should reflect what it already is...the place for loggers and riders of alternative surfcraft to gather. So, I say just change the title from "Mals Only" to "Loggers and Retro surfcraft" or something like that. ...

About ready to look for a new dvd since my last excursion into this area was some time ago. Sprout and Freefilms moody movies were a lot more rewarding than most.

Apparently Australia is the biggest emitter per capita of greenhouse gases. It's shameful what we're leaving to future generations. Yes, we are the biggest contributors per capita.

There was a thing in the mal section about this topic and someone suggested turning the mal on its side so it would go under when it got hit. I've tried that a couple of times and it seems to help but the jury is still out. This situation is the clincher for mal riders I reckon. If you think you are...
