Didn’t see that - thanks.
What a stonker, but probably a bit big for Steve so he might need to sell it to a bigger unit.

Hint.

Never seen one when surfing my yellow boards in Lennox/Ballina over the last 5 years.

All my sightings have been on whiteish boards

Don’t Sharks like roast beef and Yorkshire pudding?
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

Geez, that is a cracker Steve. I'd love to get something like that. Am still very much in love with my Russ Short - great board. Not quite a midlength at 6'2, but for a short-arse, it feels like a super long rail.

I thought I was over midlengths and have just surfed mine twice in succession and had a blast.
