You should be able to get a nearly as new surftech version of the some world's most renowned shapers designs (alive or dead) for around $500-$700

Here's a Yater in WA for $500

I don't have one, unless you count the pink soft top. Brand name, 'Diva'.

Plenty of parking though!

Coops. Look, Cranked means well, but — Don’t go anywhere near surftech (tuflite) construction.

Sure like the name says, it’s tough, and it’s light. But fk me dead. It’s got the flex patterns of a china plate. It’s skittery and over-reactive.

1) Too light to comfortably paddle into a stiff offshore wind.

2) Can’t cope with choppy conditions, as there’s no dampening or absorption, too twangy and stiff.

3) Shit in overhead groundswells, as they’re too light (you want some weight for momentum) and again stiff and skittery.

And just in case cranked comes in to defend tuflite (as he’s bound to) then do some research on this forum or the interwebs to see what the “accurate” general consensus is on tufflite.

At 9' they have plenty of weight and momentum. I've ridden them in heavy chop in double overhead at MR main break and Yallingup, as have lots of other surfers here in WA. Don't listen to Iggy, he probably hasn't ridden a mal in anything over head high.

I had a bob brown 9”4 that I rode in double overhead.

Tuflite epoxy is shit. Avoid it like the filth it is.

Coops, listen up man.

I got a mate i grew up with thats been living in SW WA for the past few years. He’s in yallingup boardriders. He send pictures of the surf. I’d murder a million magpies to trade places.

Anyone that turns their nose up at SW WA and froths over tuflite and measures their waves in kilojoules is to be treated with extreme suspicion.
