It's a genuine thread. I'm interested to hear about them in an objective way. But I don't need a defensive evangelist ramming it down my throat in another thread.

Now get typing petal.

But most importantly stop with the angry talk. You sound like Geoff.

Sounds like a marital aid catalogue from the Tool Store? Does MCoy make a strap on version for raunchy surfers?

Read the Zot speil from McCoy. Even in his marketing gumpf he hammers other board design. Is he being defensive or just bloody minded?

Is a silly question because you're going to do spaz out and tell the world Geoff is right and every other turd is wrong.

It's the absurdity of this approach that drives me bonkers. It's Jonestown all over again.

Can someone post some footage other than Cheyne surfing Bells in the Neolithic Period or that guy on the minimal flaying about in Indo?

BP don't get all girly man Alan Alder on us and start pulling out 1970's surfing memorabilia to point to a good design. Look forward not back, even at your age.

This is where all McCoy threads end up. Now there's a home for it.

Point proven.

You're Welcome.

I've never seen any good recent (last 10 years) footage of anyone doing something good on a McCoy, nor have I seen anyone doing anything good. They are pretty rare boards.

I just like riding them and I've probably spent at least 10 years doing it, starting in 1982 when I bought one of Kingsley Lookers (pro surfer at the time) old boards (a 6"2 zap/nugget single) and rode it for a year in Bali.

So, obviously I don't need nor care about getting any validation from anyone else about what they can or cannot do. Best all rounder board ever made imo and I always come back to them.

I'm also a prolific purchaser of boards, I must have owned at least 200 over my surfing life.

Cranked everyone knows you're not sold on one or a few designs.

Point in case. All jokes aside I'm interested in the "why" and "where". Alakboo's description of the snowboard in slush and flat tyres was interesting and I certainly didn't think " oh that would be terrible" but thought that might be nice at times.

So you feel good riding Zots in powerful lined up reef surf. For me that's valuable information.

I'm peaking out on Gary McNeill boards right now. I wouldn't be riding them if I didn't read the feedback in the O'Neill thread. And the guys who had/have them have been spot on in their objective assessment. This has saved me time and money.

Yep, I am always interested to get Crankys take on boards. I've seen quite a few people ride them over the years. I usually start looking at boards seriously when I see someone doing good stuff n them. Particularly if I know how they usually surf.

My basic thing with McCoys generally is they seem to be ridden off the backfoot. I always felt Simons development of the thruster owed a bit to Geoffs orientation. I only surf off my backfoot on my backhand as a generalisation.

There was a northern beaches guy - "doza"
Big bloke, competent goofy foot but not outstanding . Always rode a 6 foot something nugget at a time Webber was weaving his concave magic on us all

what struck me was he surfed LA quite a bit on his backhand which is challenging, and did very well making the tricky take off and some deep barrels
