Good one Butts. Iggy did well on the day and I will testify that he got some solid waves that were not photographed. Considering most waves were overhead, steep and very quick I was surprised that the bat was making the waves. It looks more like a board for slower full waves - but when it gets good it was totally up for it.

It's a lot nicer than when till he starts ripping into you about your lawn or when he 'artistically reinterprets' (aka. 'photoshops') an image that you post :twisted:
Not in this case :lol:

Sorry, Lessly, I’ll take MORE time in future to read the name(s).

MP, ‘AquaB’ needs a map on it like the round Australia tourers :idea:

I’ll leave the ‘other’ comments alone for now as my turgid mind goes to work. Go Manly!

the map of Oz is an idea I was workin on, I have a logo half done for the project, will show pics when its complete, but yeah ,would be cool to have a map of Oz there somewhere....SDC :roll: :roll: maybe theres a talented artist out there :roll: nah, already done enuff...someone else may be capable... good work Iggs and Butts, waves look good in pics and fairly solid too, captured the bat nicely in a few there. Iggs and Barstardos, you are right the board does hold in and go well in the juicier stuff, when I designed this kinda board first I was really aiming for a smallish waves fishy hybrid for maximum speed and FUN but was very happily surprised when testing it in solid stuff, it really handles well and even gets you into them earlier which can be half the battle sometimes, if you use your rail and let the quad do its stuff, they are heaps of fun in all sorts of conditions..was a nice surprise, think the quaddy's like a bit of juice...Looks like you guys had FUn and thats what its all about...cheers

Thanks guys - All is good with baby #2. Big happy healthy girl - Timed its arrival perfectly between swells. However surfing time may be a little constrained for a while

Good news bastardos. Congrats to family.

I found when my kids were younger I could manage to still get a surf. Now they are less reliant on us moment by moment but tend to take bigger chunks of the weekend out of my schedule, especially with the weekend sports thing.

I'm sure nothing will be stopping you getting out though.
