Hatchnam wrote:Hi Jet. Thanks but I will never sell it. Big call, but it's the best surfboard I've ever owned or ridden. magic on waves like Sandon, voodoo, and Cronulla point. Or anything head high and bigger with power and a wall to tear down. There's volume in the board, but there's nothing corky about it, the whole board looks and feels refined. Its like a fine scalpel when you put it on rail. you can really drive hard through turns and cover good ground. I fkn love it. 6'10 x 20 x 2 5/8. With a 7.5 inch flex fin that I place dead centre along the fin box, and the little zig fins for side bites which keep the board feeling lively. ( standard sized side bites stiffen the board too much, and I don't want to surf the board as a 2+1, it's long and sleek and goes best with drawn out single fin type carves )
Sounds epic... and at those dimensions it would definitely fin in my triple (fits 4 boards) wheelie travel bag with my 3 other shorties. ;)

Jet. Get rabbidge to shape you one. He calls the model a (performance) fat boy. His website no longer exists so try intagram or facey for mark rabbidge.

To me, that model is a McCoy done right! :)

>> takayama flo egg is another similar board. Low rail single fin built for full rail carves etc.

Wish I hadn't sold mine to someone who came around for dinner. It was a thruster. Good at Sandon, Bali, etc.
I think he's on Instagram but his site has been site has been down for a while.

not sure if i've posted pics of my red 6'8 red pcc single fin. But i could always get Stuart to put side bites in it.
I have a bit of fun on it in Indo last year, would make it a little more versatile. I should probably just save my $$$ and not worry about it, my skills don't really justify it. But when has frothin' over board design ever been about skill?

That's a pretty narrow frame.

From reports, you should've headed a bit further in either direction

Yeh, I have. Last year was the opposite for autumn though. Ballina pumped while flat rock-north barely broke.

Buddy, you and I both know, they are the b-grade spots and when the a-grade spots are pumping for weeks on end we don;t give a fcuk about whether the b-grade spots are any good.
