all the time. pleasure to watch and they draw smooth power lines. you pay for the privilege though.
I guy i went to indo with brought a couple of his boards along. A 5'7 fish, a 5'10 2+1, and a 6'2 swallow tail single. I didn't get around to surfing any of them but they all looked the goods.

If I had my time again I'd have a go on the fish the 2+1, both looked like fun. Didn't know the guy well enough, I was too worried about snappage/dings.

Last time I lent someone a board it came back with a nose guard (didn't know they still existed) and no fins

There's could be a whole series. The raging roid etc

Itchy A
(groveller) – Itching to go surfing all week while sitting in your cube, but then it’s onshore mush all weekend? Put away the Preparation H and get some salt water relief in even the worst conditions. Scratch that itch with the Itchy A.

Busy Finger (step down) – An index finger shorter than your regular short board, the super responsive Busy Finger provides instant feedback when you’re scratching around on those small lumpy days. Wash your hands of the office environment and get Busy.

Ring Pillow (all rounder) – As comfortable and versatile as your inflatable donut cushion, this board will work anywhere. Whether its inside the tube, tearing in the pocket or pushing out on the open face, you won’t even know it’s there with the Ring Pillow.

Hemorrhoidal Screamer
(step-up) – For the waves you dream of all week, but wish you hadn’t paddled out in on the weekend. This board will get you out the back, into a fat wide one and back on the sand quicker than you can say “it’s time for my rubber band ligation”.

Piles Driver (semi gun) – You know you don’t need it and so does your wife. As you’re driving to Collaroy, this board is a constant reminder of your decision not to follow the surfing path in place in place of that minor promotion, which paid for your private health insurance (with no extras) and that very expensive honeymoon in the Maldives in the off-season.

Nice quiver Davs, you just need a fish, bonzer & single fin log then you will be sorted

I think there's something wrong with me. For the first time since I started surfing I feel like there's no room in my life for more boards.
Surely it's a passing phase.
Just stumbled across this. Bought a twinny yesterday.

Ok ok ok. This is the last one. :-D-:

How is the outer quad. What model/ type
I had a few outers and they are quality boards and think there is something good going on with bigger quads

Saltman It's a smart board. Clean simple roundtail, slightly eggy planshape, plenty of foam in the mid section but foiled out and the rails are not too beefy. Deep single to double concave.
My first Outer and I doubt it will be my last.
