That looks great, nice foam around the chest but not too big in the nose.

Pretty sure that's "Surfanimals" (forum handle) selling them.
If so they'll have been "test" ridden and then moved on.

Will do after I've had a few surfs on it.

I picked it up this arvo, but unfortunatley Patto didn't have any of the fins in stock which he wanted to use so I took the 9" fin out of my 6'1 just so I could get the board wet.

It was blowing about 20kts out of the NE at Wanda this arvo with kite surfers and clubbies everywhere. I had about 40mins so only got a few waves.

Looking forward to the next time the point gets a wave.

Took a couple of shitty pics just in case something went wrong on the first surf.

Will take better ones before the next session.

(No affiliation) If you're on a budget, the sideways board bag the board is in is very good value. Well padded. Plastic zips so nothing to rust.
Excellent company to deal with.

I'll have a whinge in the next 12 month if it shits itself and will probably come out with every cliche available.

I can see this board and bag getting some use over the next few months that's for sure.

I've just bought this:

Image

See http://surfboardagency.com/tsa-crow/

Its 8' x 21.5" x 3", 56l, slight V in the nose, slight single concave into slight double in a slight v, into a single concave in the last 8".

Middle third is pretty flattish, and lift in the nose is only moderate, good lift in the tail.

Before I bought it my current biggest board was a 6'8 nugget. What I wanted was a board that planed easily so I could bag a few waves in gutless surfs around Perth and/or when the mals were out in force, plus be able to handle non-heavy overhead waves in Bali and other places in Nusa Tengara.

Had it out a few times and it satisfies the first criteria, it'll be a while before I find out how it goes in bigger waves, but it has a pretty severe pin-tail and adequate tail lift. The pics do not show this well, I think they may be of the 7' rather than the 8'.

This was the board I was going to buy, but was waylaid by the Zot and made a sudden impulse buy. Decide in hast and repent at leisure.
