Ended up getting a second hand 7” fcs pivot fin. Use it with some quad rears for sidebites.
8” alk single fin was nice too.

Loving the 7’2 seaxe. Wish i’d found something like this year ago. Would’ve saved me thousands. Not using much else at the moment. Have most of my boards on sale on the gumtree.

The plan is to give it a few more weeks, then if she hasn't agreed bury her in the sand dunes.

I put a post in the quiver thread. They’re all on the bumtree and fleabay. You’ll find them.

Mate I reckon you’d be mad not to look at the seaxe range. The 7’2 is so versatile. Seriously, if i was going to PNG tomorrow for a trip and could only take one board that would be it.

Well ironically the jd is my fave board. Ironic because I surf so little and it's the thinnest, narrowest, with the least rail volume and most rockered. Such a good board, though it does need a bit of juice, and 7'4" can feel long in smaller waves so I was thinking of a smaller hybrid. Its hard though, stock hybrids for 75kg look balanced but stock hybrids for 90kg weekend warriors are ginormous. Mollusc robo looks clean and functional with being too thick and blobby.

Gotta sell some boards first. God I hate that process haha

She's pretty much accepted it though :)

Jd is 7'4" and awesome, looking for a bit smaller. Feels a bit long in smaller waves but head high plus it's like butter :)

They do look fun. Is your FW a timber tek? Composite boards are great.

They only do seaxes in timbertek. Had a few waves in 4ft surf this morning with some wind chop on the surface.
Love it. No corky chattering like tuflites.
Love it.
