Re: Strahan tassie

Rent in Queenstown is bloody cheap. We have decided to either rent in Queenstown to help with savings for a home or Burnie were there is a specialist Autism School that is known across Australia. Our youngest is just about 4 and severely speech delayed so Burnie is another option. The rent in Burnie...

Re: Strahan tassie

Thinking I might go down for a weekend. Get some locals show me around, see what’s there, look at homes, Suss the services out, film it on go pro, and then seriously consider it. There’s always trial bay or further north when desperate for surf.

Re: Strahan tassie

Beggars can’t be choosers :(. It won’t be long till the rent is to high for us in gympie. Give it three years then we will be priced out. We can’t afford anywhere on the Sunshine Coast. With both of us as careers looking after our kids on the spectrum I don’t want to become homeless like all those o...

Strahan tassie

Looking at making a possible permanent move to tassie. Moving to Queenstown which is 40 minutes to Strahan. Does anyone know about the surf at ocean beach?? Sounds like it’s a bit of hit and miss. Considering the trip from gympie to Noosa is about 40 min it’s not to far from the surf I suppose.

Bonzer builds

I've decided to bite the bullet and dip my toes into a few bonzer builds. So my thought process is to build two 6'4 bonzer type boards, one a 5 fin and one a twinzer. At this stage the first template is done. 6'4 x 13 x 20 x 14. Next will roughly be the same and designing the dims this week. Not yet...

Re: Is anyone backyard shaping any more

Ive decided to glass on some fins on mine tally. This is just an experiment board to get me back into shaping so Im also going to go for a leash loop as well. I like the idea of not plugging holes in a surfboard if not needed. Plus glass on just sort of make me smile, man Im getting old. Im going to...
