Totes. Those overhead south swell walls simply beg for a longer rail line. Gonna give your bonzer a whirl out there tomorrow midday onwards and see what's up. Or maybe the big ol
70's pintail single.

Long time no see.

Question: has anyone out there got a 7’2 firewire seaxe? What fins did you put in it.

I’ve only ever used fcs fins and the board i’m looking at getting second hand has futures. What are the equivalent sizes in futures for GX sides/rears.

I’m thinking
Single: 8” flex fin
2 + 1: FCS 7.25 and some MR trailers/gx side bites
Quads: Large AM.

I don't have one of those but recently tried the large AM2 fins up front in a mid length quad. So good I bought matching rears, except AM1.

After selling my 6’8 waterskate, i’ve been missing a board that paddles really well into high tide point wave that I can duck dive if I get caught inside. My 7’7 single is a bit too much board to duck dive well.
The 7’2 would be a nice option that I reckon will go well on the beachie when it gets to 3ft and the point at high tide 2-3ft.

Would be a good option to take to PNG for places like Nago left.

I'm the worlds worst duck diver and after my knee injury the thought of putting that knee into the deck gives me chills but I've started using the other leg and so far it's not actually too bad. I'm 90kg and my jd is only 2 1/2 thick though, all the other mids I've had were thicker with much beefier rails

So I got my hands on a new 7’2 seaxe for 600 bills
Took it for a paddle at the beachie In 1.5ft on shore junk near the flags.
Put an 8” alkali Pcc fin in it.
Paddles as well as my 7’7. I reckon the epoxy core played a big part here. There’s some waves coming for Sunday.
Pretty excited to get it out to my local point at high tide.

Also if anyone has a 6-7” centre fin laying around let me know.
I’ve got a set of medium performers neo glass in new condition that we can swap.
Or would swap the performers for a large futures quad set.

Friend of mine has a seaaxe, seems like a great board. Can’t believe how light it is though. She is a 66yr old who only started surfing 6 years ago, so that’s good for her ....

But I’ve had a short (2 wave) surf on it and, based on that extensive experience (!) have recommended it to a few people looking for a slightly performance midlength. Should be a lot of fun

Had a session at north cronulla yesterday. Very busy 2ft max on the sets. The 8” single is perfect for it.
Going to get a 2+1 set up.

Thinking about the shapers 6” 2+1 set up. Not bag value at $150.

If was super crowded... haven’t had a collision in a while. Had 2 yesterday. Nose chipped on my new board. Not sure if it was from a collision or whether my leg rope pulled down on the rail after I wiped out. I wasn’t happy.

Feels like a great board though. Got a feeling my 6’8 PCC single fin has an uncertain position in my quiver as a result.
