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...

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. ...

Hi cuttles,

Just got back from surfing Byron in quite a gusty offshore wind......any dramas getting into the wave on a light weight board in such conditions?

Topher makes a good point, you get instant speed.....kind of like a quad....when taking off and they maintain momentum. And they go off the bottom off the top beautifully.

Re: 2+1 boards

G day uncle, I have two....a 7ft diverse SG model which I got years ago and a DMS crumpet which is 5'11. My crumpet has become my go to board for all conditions. The bonus of a 2 plus 1 is that you can play around with the fins, moving the centre fin forward and back or changing it, shapers.com.au h...
