Want to wait til I can get it in a solid five foot groundswell then see what's up. I reckon it'll handle it no worries. For now, I've still got (another) week and a half before I can surf again (recovering from ear infection)


Early forecast shows possible action this weekend - keen to hear how it goes. My RTT was good in solid waves, but nothing special in smaller stuff so i offloaded it. What fins you running in yours hatchy?

I'm meant to stay out of the water til Wednesday next week (3 weeks in total) but Wednesday and Thursday is forecasting a fairly sizeable east swell, so reckon i will go out (with a giant wad of blu-tac in my ears).

Running Chris Garrett fins. Similar to MR fins, though the twins are a bit bigger, and the stabiliser is a bit smaller.
