I am sick so I will have to pass the Aquabat on a bit early.

I've got a perforated ear drum and between that and the vomiting, I won't be surfing this week.

Disclaimer for Betty going batty on the Bat. I am still on the beginner side of surfing, so don't laugh too much. Took the Aquabat out this morning at Freshie. Just dropping off high tide. Just some waist to chest high waves. To my surprise, I caught some waves and stood up and managed a few turns. ...

worse for wear ??? whoever is responsible for the damage is supposed to repair it, that was always the deal, so then the board can continue its journey without falling apart or taking water....Sounds like TMC may have tested out the glassing too much MP there is no noticeable damage to the board ex...

Also mark, whoever does your glassing, dont ever let him go. He is invaluble. The number of time the board must have hit the bottom, and no traces whatsoever. And hatchy, there are going to be some funny pics thats for sure, if only they also had sound. Just got the Aquabat. Thanks for the delivery...

I have rib cartilage damage and I have to now go to warrief-ckinwoodcr-p medical centre for a x ray. I hate them boolshitting cr-p heads that work behind the counter with their “it’s only a half hour wait” cr-p.

It's my turn? hip. hip hooray!! I am waiting for TMC to call. Now, I can make friends with the surfing neighbours as I have board worth sharing. maybe send him a PM ??? I havent been passing other peoples numbers or e-mails around, much rather the surfers make contact themselves and maybe even make...

Re: Mr chunky

A bloke on another forum made himself a big boy board, 8' x 19 1/2 x 23 3/4 x 17 1/2 x 3 5/8''. As you can imagine, he's catching SHIT loads of waves and is loving it in little bit overhead to knee high mush. A bit too far outside the box for most, but i like foam, so im thinking of doing one for m...

only 15? ok then ... you'll have to work on your timing a bit for unbroken waves, there's only a short window of opportunity to work with - between missing it and getting sucked over the falls. persistence is the key (as with everything surfing), you'll figure it out if you put the time in. if you'...

^^Fong, maybe you should chop off your front foot for a few surfs. I found a Potbelly on ebay in victoria, but I am having so much hassle organising a courier that I think that I will give up. Maybe I will still have to get me a fatbat from Pridmore. My Husband has allowed me to buy a surfboard, be...

I have similar problems duck diving my very floaty Mccoy nugget. I need to put on some weight, I think. I can sometimes duckdive my board, when it is little, but mostly I just turtle. I found that putting one leg in the air, like doing a hand stand on your board helps sink the nose, better. Then, on...

McCoy micro range-pot belly, stumpy and splinter

Anyone tried one of Geoff McCoy's newer small nuggets? Or are you all too big and fat to fit on one? I tried one of the demos of a 6'0 splinter (6'0 by 18 1/2 by 2 3/4); a McCoy version of a thruster, I suppose, with a narrower nose and less of that fat tail than a standard nugget. It was fun, as ex...
