That's fine but the scale is inherently elitist.

just to drop the fcuken hammer again

I've been on a transition surf movie bender and that seq of MP at Kirra on Morning of the Earth is still a complete jaw dropper. Go to 43min and something on here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak-ZsAB ... ture=share

Like four years before this was shot, pretty much every surfer in the world was riding loggers. Now, MP, 19 years old and just crackling with energy and style, is lining up Kirra like a gunslinger. You can just smell the surfing being invented as it happens on screen.

It's funny eh Alby just kind of stumbled across the day this was shot, it wasn't set up at all. And the ftg is not at all nostalgic, it's just kind of raw and brilliant.
1971, can’t help but notice how much he uses the middle and front of the deck. Wasn’t til 10 years later I first surfed Kirra, had it like that many times tho, and I was standing middle and front a lot too. Suited Kirra.

my god this site is a Kook Haven isn't it

I mean drailed stand up for god's sake.
This is the part where I say that my first store bought board was the same MP Model he rides in MOTE. A Joe Larkin Ski Free. He was still tooling around Kirra Car Park on a dragstar Pushie. Kind of around the time he went to Bells for the first time.

My dad wouldn't take me to Byron to buy a San Juan cause they were druggoes. He thought Joe was more conservative. So I got an MP :lol:

Jimmy Gamboa riding a hull at Rincon looks like he's channeling MP.

Fcuk! I just got a crazy board shaped

9'8" x 20.5" x 3.5" Christenson off a Twig file, low entry to foiled vee bottom pintail quad.

Chris lives the classic gypsy shaper's life, orders collect at various points on the globe, he comes into town and tunes in with the machine etc, finish shapes a pile of boards, then depending on what's happening either heads off to the next port of call or goes into re-design mode. I think he's off to the Goldie now. Meanwhile he's left me this thing, a full on bombie killing spear.

It looks great, Nick.

What do I care drained. The Longtard has fled the building. 4’ Cloudbreak is for American adult learners. And so the kooky world turns.

I saw a guy on a new Christenson get so rag-dolled on the rock-off on Sunday.

Why do you think he is the best designer in the world Nick?
He seems to be able to design and shape pretty much anything, from supergun paddle-in craft for Jaws etc (see Greg Long, numerous others) to classic Fish and longboards, to epic tube riding 6' plus pintails, without missing a beat. Like really without missing a beat. Every single good surfer I know who has one or more of his boards, and this is right across the spectrum of those designs, kind of slightly drools when the subject comes up. All the boards I've seen of his, from Greg's Eddie winning quiver of 2009 to an 8'0" semi longboard he shaped for my brother's partner to a bunch of different craft I've seen in CA and here, including several six channel swallows I saw today, just reeked of pure class, wonderful combinations of rocker, outline, foil and bottom lines. On this basis I am willing to trust his skills beyond any other shaper right now for a board I want to ride at the edge of my capabilities, in Sydney area surf barely anyone has yet ridden. So I am voting with my money and my sense of what's required for those waves.

I should add I think there's a few other designers who are in that kind of league, like Pat Rawson can do all that for sure, Stu Kenson in CA, Gunther Rohn, here in Oz I think Wayne Webster is pretty much the closest thing we have to a true across the board super designer. But yeah, I do think Chris is the guy right now.
We'll Nick after a couple of weeks riding powder and piste in Japan I can tell you he makes a pretty fcuking amazing powder snowboard as well.

I’ve got to go to Singapore in a few weeks for work and am going to have a week surfing on the way back. Was gonna come back through Bali and see where the waves are but seeing as I’m further West I’d thought I’d check out some land based options on Sumatra to minimise travel time.
Was thinking about Banda Aceh but also after any recommendations/ advice on places further South.

I think everywhere in Indo is a bit hit and miss at that time Jimmy.
