Matt Warshaw on twitter has recommended this article on the 2013 Mavericks Invitational.

It is a lovely piece of writing by Alice Gregory. 5 stars from me.

it was deceptively good here. I woke up thinking the swell had dropped but it hadn't at all. Beautiful long lines.

Surfed snapper through to greenmount early on ... wasn't all that crowded ... jagged a couple of nice little peelers. Was smallish.

take a look at the board selector http://www.boardcave.com.au/?utm_source ... Newsletter
Just out of interest I entered my details for surfing 2-4ft waves - then got a recommendation - OK reasonable suggestions me thinks (6 ish x 19 ish x 2.4 ish)
Then changed entry for surfing 8ft + waves - Bloody same board recommended size and all!

I'm liking the look of the new Hypto Krypto model quad-or-thruster option.

:lol: :lol:

when set up as a quad in the double over head and grinding range - I reckon it would add a significant advantage over the standard thruster model

A 6'0 quad / thruster fin option would be a pretty ideal 'cover all bases' option for my tassie trip in October.

But at the moment I'm liking the look of this from psillakis . The eclipse . Fairly similar.

Every time I go to byron I'm seeing more and more brand new pop-outs being carried around by backpackers. I think there's at least one or two shops set-up in the main drag offering up these cheapies.
maybe the days of the recycled old brown dogs passing through many beginner hands are numbered.

shop right next to Deus , which sells $1500 boards selling brand new pop-outs for $300.

I laugh every time I go past.

tbh they look totally functional shapes.

most of the time you get what you pay for. I wouldn't buy a deus though.
