Seems like everyone is making some version of that shape these days.

Wouldn't call it a mini mal though. Love to grab it but too hard to organise at that distance on a Sunday. Seems to be 7' rather than 7'2" from the bottom. Won't last long.

I'd be fking those fins off and just running a 9'0 flex single. That board will be gone within 24-48 hrs

I did try surf cargo, but he doesnt deliver anywhere near me. Closest he could manage was an hour's drive away from me and I would have to meet him on the highway on a work day as he drove past. Its still an option but I thought there might be something easier. Otherwise, yes, he would have been perfect
ive got 2 boards coming down from webby in Ballina soon. $70 for 2, dropped to my door in syd. surf cargo cost me $50 a board
and I had to go meet him at bondi when I used him. not sure who webby is using but I can find out if u like

Cheers - its not so much the courier that is the problem, its having to pack the board right (in order for a courier to pick it up). People are happy to bubble wrap the things but most couriers require it to be boxed and people dont want to go to the trouble of pulling apart cartons and jury rigging something. I'm heading over to a 'pack n go' in the next few days to see if they stock surfboard cartons. I know you can get the cartons wholesale so presumably shapers and shops have distribution channels, but for the one off casual person I'm struggling to find where they can be bought.

I may just have to buy a new board...

Looks nuts. Maybe it'd be fun in drainpipe point waves, inside out Kirra or something. Hard to see it working everyday type conditions.
