Why?
Because you've got that nationalistic air about you when it comes to surfing. You know, the good old days of Australian surfing and all that. Nothing wrong with it, just comes across that way to me. There's plenty who are like that.
Nah, you missed the.....used to....bit. I think the current crop of Australian Competitive Surfers are pretty ordinary and I'm definitely open to good surfing and boards from anywhere. Definitely back in the day....but then I saw most of the best surfers in Australia surfing fairly regularly when we were tops internationally. A lot of them lived and surfed down the road.

So I take it you don't see yourself like that.

Not old enough to experience that golden generation of Lynch, Peterson, Richards, PT, Rabbit etc...a bit of a bummer really.

It's an interesting thought though. In standard short boards why buy a Pyzel over a JS, a Lost over a DHD etc.... They pretty much do the same [email protected] thing. Bit different when it comes to specialty board e.g. Brewers etc..

There's a lot of difference in design right now. Golden age.

There's a Lightning Bolt on the wall of a coffee place in Ala Moana shopping centre.
Couldn't work out how to sneak out with it. :(

Nowhere near quick enough.
I pictured a gang of big Hawaiians waiting for me at the exit to the shopping centre. #*! #*!

This on the wall of a coffee shop in Ala Moana Shopping Centre.

They gave me a filthy enough look while I was taking the pics. :oops:
Could never have got close enough to nick it. :roll:

Nice looking board. They make them up at Byron Bay under license as well.

Hands up who is riding a sub 6ft Lis looking quad fish or twin. F$ck me they are everywhere.

I was chatting to a surfing acquaintance who I've know for 10 years, he's always ridden HPSB. He's now loving his Rarb Machado Seaside. He wouldn't have been seen dead on one 18 months ago.

Please explain this phenomenon

Looks like a good groveller option.
