Got up at Four, went on a mission south. 2 foot little A-frames loving the light NW on them.

Back at 8:30, wife barely noticed me gone.

Super stoked! :D

Re: Swell for Chopes

NC's doing a pretty bang-up job at ASL too. I don't read magazines online or in print ... After working in 'em for half a decade, there's too much motivation within them to keep advertisers on side and happy at all times which imo skewers a fair percentage of real stories, real accounts and the tru...

Re: Tufflite boards

^ i've had a crack on one of those MR super twin tufflite boards. the float factor of tufflite, coupled with the looseness, sit high and go like clappers down the line attributes of the twin fin make it great for small bowly stuff, and zips past any section that looks like its gonna fold. but if th...

Re: How many boards per year get made in Australia?

I've heard a certain prominant shaper on the goldy, who has several machines and no less than 4 finishers (and up to 8 or 9) can pump out 500+ boards per week.

Re: Where did you surf today ?
