Have to respect anyone who surfs in Wales. It must be a labour of love.

Bloody flat here just now.

You mean it's not the whitewater from an A frame?

It’s not a single fin
It doesn’t have pointless channels
It turns

Enough?

Nice board hatchy, great shape and the exact right dimensions for me.

I'm liking singles more and more lately, but as 2+1 or Bonzer 5

I had a feel of Iggs’ yella weapon there at bra a few weeks ago and boy did it feel good. And we all know a board is as good as it feels under arm, right?



I’m late to this stab series of vids ... particularly love this one on the strength of Nate Florence and his infectious charm and personality. And seeing Emily Erickson on that single fin gun take on monster Jaws too.

No need to get defensive iggy. Going straight is a perfectly legitimate choice. Certainly got the pensioner chapter all hot under the collar

The board turns when it needs to. That is, to wash off speed. Not because it has to turn to generate it. That’s the difference.

It’d go great on that four foot slab reef that you surf once every 15 months for an hour and a half on the right turn of the tide.

One of my favourite things back in the day was giggling at customers’ order forms down at the guy I used to get my boards from. I have a feeling that your one for the Unflushed Turd was an absolute cracker

Interesting ...

171.11 Serious Unsportsmanlike Interference
If the Discipline Director and Commissioner’s Office determine that an interference during an Event was intentional, unsportsmanlike and of a serious nature, notwithstanding any penalty available under Article 188 (which may include suspension from Events or an entire Tour), a Surfer will lose the benefit of counting their best Event result when calculating their Ranking on the relevant Tour (e.g. if this Article is violated at a QS Event, their QS Ranking will be effected). Notwithstanding any resulting discipline being imposed by the Discipline Director, the heat in question can be re-surfed if determined by the Head Judge that the result was affected by the Surfer’s conduct referred to within this Article.


Stepdad Charlie should read the whole rule book before coaching that kind of behaviour from Gabby.

Imagine the shit that would go down if the WSL threw that rule down, which they most probably should, but won't ... toothless cunts.
Ha ha people suddenly having kittens over the Rules

They thought about whether it applied here and decided it didn't quite get there because the consequences were not "of a serious nature", ie nobody got hurt.

I thought, this is a bit like a professional soccer foul, maybe a yellow card but not a red card.

What’s the back story on this? Why did you stop getting board off him?
