that's a fantastically priced double bag.

But, are the zips decent quality?.

That's where board bags fcuk up

I've had the cover two years- plenty of use - no issues. Zippers are fine.

My bonzer hasn't even been shaped yet and I'm already thinking about my next new board.

That's a lot of fin digger, you packing on weight in the bus? Or did you settle somewhere?
Very nice board.

Digger who made that board? I don't recognise the logo.
Do you still get your boards from Pridmore?

That's Huie's logo.

Digger can I get a closeup of the fins? And what is going on with the deck, the change in texture?

Beautiful board. Some cork deck wouldn't go astray though

I will let the craftsman answer the questions guys when he gets on here. I havent got the board in my hands yet. I have a lot to thank pridmore for with quads. Huie showed me a totally different direction with quads and he still amazes me with every board he makes. A true craftsman. Heres a pic of the fins.

Sorry about the highjack. Ive always wondered about five fin bonzers and how they ride. They have just got my imagination.

Very nice board.
boo'' been awhile eh'' the fins are based on the a m 2s but a bit smaller the rears have less area and slightly more rake than the fronts
but as you know if a change is needed it will be done. i really think these fins will go great in his cork board

the texture deck was done with a polymer that is rock hard and is mainly there for grip for the wax
i do not do that one very often. but as he wanted channels i used traditional building methods apart from epoxy
and the blank weight cancelled out the current cork construction.
i guess that answers hatchys question as well

Saltman yes the rears are flat
can allways be changed although there is conflicting feed back on dble foils http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fW19tHoCvqE/V ... C02787.JPG
