In 2-3 weeks away I'm driving down to Wapengo/Bermagui if anyone down that way wants to have a run?

I've busted my knee pretty bad and will likely need either 4-6 weeks in a brace or surgery with even longer out of the water. Don't worry about saving the dim-SIM for my photos. Send it south if you can.

I'm probably still going down south near Jervis Bay in october sometime, so if someone wants me to drop it down there somewhere I'll be more than happy.

Am having heaps of fun on this thing. Scored some pumping beachies today, anything with a wall and the dimsim flies and carves. Compared to a fish it is just as fast down the line, but not as 'tight', goes great off the top - and backhand is no drama!

Gonna try and surf myself stupid tomorrow - then whos up?

stoked ya havin fun on it mate....there was a guy who ws keen, I told him to contact LessorMore, pretty sure he did but thought it was lined up for him to get it after you....told him to watch this thread on RS, if he hasnt contacted you, then we've done enough......if you are out there and want to have a crack, let me know asap....
otherwise, who is keen for a go on the dim-SIM ? Beerfan is keen but its a real lot less than he usually rides, and Quangers is keen but think he is away on hols....and dont know of anyone else around Sydney....it might be heading back to me if no takers..... :roll: 8) glad you are enjoying it Topher, any pics.... 8)

ok, well lets see if we can get Captn to take it south when he goes..not sure of dates, so best if you guys work it out on here....maybe there'll be another surfer or 2 who wants a paddle on it before the Captn takes it south ....you and Batoes might be able to catch up for a dim-SIM sesh seeing how Batoes has already got one from me.....few pics maybe ??? :roll:
Hey BF, I hear there's a ding or cracked rail, if you would be so kind to repair it up, happy to swing you a few bucks or a new tee or something mate..?, dunno who or how it was dinged but if you can suss it out and let me know, that'd be much appreciated..... 8) and try some diff keels if you wanna too.....

Getting the board south aint a prob for me mark, I'm often surfing around the gong and beyond - I could take it down to bf or batoes next week and bring it back when they are done. The dings arent't too bad. Its mainly the glass flaking and chipping away on the real sharp edge of the rail.

The beerfan has the board.

Now there is a 5'2 sized hole in my quiver that I never knew existed.

I took the tape off the rail amd had a look. Glass seperated slightly from deck to bottom. I don't have any resin but I worked some solarez into the small cracks, and taped up with clear sticky tape. Probbably should get a layer of 4oz, but I dont have any and it would be a bit beyond me, glassing a whol we board is easier than doin rail dings!!. The cracks are small, and the foam is still solid, so I think it'll be ok. When set, i'll cover with 100mph tape.
