Brocky don't do websites.
I'm interested in the CDD board you have. (like the sound of those dims to).
Could you post a pic?
Is that part of the 2 boards for $950 deal?
I'll get down Yamba way soon, keen to check out your operation.

nah, the CDD is a trial only at this stage and not doing them for customers til the cobwebs are all sorted....there's a bit more to it but I have glassed mine as a standard eps blank and it should have a layer of divynicel or something...The 2 for 950 are standard PU boards, clear, fcs, thrusters, wet rub finish.... My operation is just me and my shed, not much to check out mate but would be stoked to catch up and you can try a board or 2 maybe ( depending on what I have at the time )... if you contact me via my e-mail ( in my profile ), I can send you pics and stuff...easier and less abuse of forums... 8)

Didn't surf today. Went fishing instead. Last surf was at raglan on Tuesday. Around 6-8ft glassy 14 second period and 150m plus rides. Lots of people in the water but still got a few riding a 6'9" semi gun.

Decided I'd be smart and head over to longy after checking Narr-'Roy - any drop in size would be offset by protection from the noreaster. WRONG! :lol: Went in anyway and actually had a half decent surf in knee-hi conditions an the tide dropped. I agree, the water was a little fresh - perfect for the hordes heqding down later to cool off :roll:

Bra again this morning. There were some fluffy 2-3 foot onshore lumps to get amongst. It wasn't too crowded possibly due to the freezing lime green water. It was my first surf this summer in a steamer & was infinitely better than shivering in my inflexible piece of sh*t springy. You just have to love the classic summer combo of onshores, average waves & winter / spring water temps - Sydney is truly a surfers paradise :lol:

Only took posession of it yesterday... yet to get it under my feet but ummm yeah... *very* tight fin configuration. And they are the TC Aqualines... so there's not much area in the trailers. :?

I mean I like loose boards, but I think this one might turn out to be a handful. Still... I was offered a go on it for a few days so I thought, meh... why the hell not?

Might post a follow up, after I have blown a dozen bottom turns this arvo.

:D :D :D :D :D

At about 11.oo last night the mongrel ESE which has been blowing for days, died. All went calm. By 1 am I had to get under a comforter.
5AM. Gentle offshore breezes and 3 to 4 ft of swell hitting my point. I surfed myself to a standstill after 3 hours.
Looking good for tomorrow a bit further north. 8)

I missed some really good T Tree the last 2 days, due to work commitments :x .

So got up early this morning and hit "Cream Puff's" on the big morning tide. Some nice slabs, though a bit inconsistent. Rode my 6'3". Water was like a bath, warmest I've felt it this year.

Tmrw looking good, wind will be the deciding factor. SW - Cream Puffs, NW - Somewhere else :wink: 8) .

Paddled out just after sunrise to the knee high farce that was the alley at cronulla. Plenty of folks looking at it, I was the first fool in the water... it was very ordinary.

Last few mornings were at my usual beachie. All too short and shallow, just getting the feel of my fat DSC Steve Austin model board, it's fun having more room to walk around on the deck.
