Re: SHRED SLED

Hi guys, I checked out a fibreflex hayden shred sled in a shop this arvo, i quite liked the look of them for an east coast alrounder. I know this is an old thread but was wondering if Anyone has any more recent feedback to add? I like round tail quads but have never ridden one with a flyer so would ...

Beerfan, i have a 7ft diverse sg widowmaker they re a good board, more versatile than you d think and easy to ride. Havent ridden mine for a while ...

Re: Single fin shortboards

One single fin that i really like is the simon jones morning of the earth MP kirra model.....andrew kidman featured the original in his movie lost in ether.
Beautiful looking board and a well thought out design.

Re: Single fin shortboards

Cuttles, how big is yours?. :shock: , i have a dan mcdonald shape called a "crumpet" he makes a few as a single fin but i got mine as a 2 + 1 set up because i prefer a bit more drive than the single fin offers. I have been extensively demoing cuttlefish"s fin collection :P , i tried the greenough f...

Re: 83BL Chilli board

Bombora maybe you can dust off your mates board and take it for a spin. Thanks for the info tiger, so belly channels were used as an alternative to vee before concaves took over in the 90's. Would you say that they are a good allrounder? I did a google search and saw that Byrne do an updated version...

Re: 83BL Chilli board

I like the look of it, would be a great option for more speed from less rider effort. Can any shapers here comment on belly channels vs. tail exit channels? Leading on from the Captains question, anyone who rode belly channels care to comment on their strengths and weaknesses? I think Dooma Hardman...

Re: 83BL Chilli board

I like the shorter, wider, thicker boards as well. Living in Qld i just havent seen the 83BL and i am wise enough now to not fork out based on an internet image. If i had the chance to hear some feedback and have a feel of one, i d be sorely tempted. I used to have a couple of six channels 10 or 15 ...

83BL Chilli board

Has anyone ridden one of the these 83BL Chilli boards? I haven't seen one in the flesh but as a I learnt to surf in the 80's the belly channels and outline caught my interest. It seems to be fast & loose under Barton's feet but he's got a fair bit of talent: http://www.chillisurfboards.com/store/chi...

Re: Firewire Sweet Potato?

Hi balts, I ve got back into mine recently and in the right kind of waves they re great fun. However, firewire are bringing out a more refined version called the baked potato that looks like it may perform better in steeper (but still smaller) waves. They re not available till june or july tho. I re...

Re: Stuck which board to get now…

Before you rush out and spend a grand on a McCoy research these forums. Yes they certainly have volume and are wave catchers but they do have flaws and are not for everyone....i couldn t do a forehand snap on one to save my life :oops: You may also like to check out the MCtavish sumo thread on this ...

Re: Single Fin Nugget - fin selection?

Hi damo, If you are looking at a dolphin style fin, i reckon you d need a 7.5 to 8 inch fin, greenough style with good flex. Check out michael cundith s website (mc surf) in byron...and they can ship it to you. I tried a fin smaller than this as a single fin in mine and it worked to a point but it w...

I grabbed a copy of smorgasboarder magazine over the weekend and they have a nice astron zot, lazer zap and mccoy section....its 5 or 6 pages with words from the man himself. Nice info about single fins and rails :idea: and of course the dome bottom and fat arse tails. its also online at www.smorgas...

Re: Firewire Sweet Potato?

Yeah you cant go off the firewire website, you have to demo one....too many factors too consider other than weight and height such as age, level of fitness, experience/ability, body fat % :shock: Firewire tend too point people onto boards too short then you see them on evil bay...marketing i guess. ...
