….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Hmmm , you may be right . Any suggestions on how to slow down ? I`m never the greatest forum poster , even on the mountain bike forums , preferring to read and absorb instead . Plus work is slow today .

let me guess. More foam up front than normal HPSB?
That for me?

Just well balanced, it’s pretty low volume still.
I think JJF boards have foam forward. That’s all. I’ve a Conner coffin board he and Kelly rode in comps with foam forward. And they are easy to ride for an average punter.
Nah, just central I think.
Dims written are 6’, 18 7/8, 2 5/16, 27L but I reckon it’s chunkier than it says. Mate sold it partly cos it felt like a touch more volume than he wanted even though it was the same as his last. Good for me.

I`m breaking my post count here I think . Love the Fader and I think I`ll be ordering a Faded 2.0 soon . My Peri Peri starts to get real skatey above 5 foot so I`ll probably go to a 6'2 in the Faded .

Nice one mario. Bold colours! 😀

I just bought the twin to my Outer Island 6'1".

A 6'5" step up, which I'm hoping to get out in this swell a'coming.

Needs FCS 2 find though, which I don't have.

Any suggestions? Large, I reckon..
Cheers Wyre , I`ve always had colour / designs on all my boards . Personal question though - how much do you weigh ? Fins are subjective I find to the board . I weigh 73 kgs and I`ve run large FCS in a 6'2 and mediums in it also . For me the larges gave me what I needed on 6 foot days and lots of water movement and the mediums in just the normal stuff . I run the Julian air cores in the peri peri and also in the churro 6'0 that I have . For me the JW fins have been the winners .

It wasn’t a post to try to prove you wrong. I just wanted to post something on design about a board people love and seems to be the nexus of modern board design. The ambition is possibly a bit of chat and learning on HP design.
Yeh, no worries.
I was just more looking at the smooth outline and rocker (not that that's new) as a comment regarding Nick's new shooter.

Well as you know these forums have little to with surfing so the real question is WTF is that sorry excuse for lawn you are standing on?

Ahhh , at the start of winter we tore down a pergola / bbq area and the only thing growing on it was weeds ( we grow them well here ) . Now that the weather is warming up the grass is starting to send out runners . Its roughly 6 meters by 3 meters . I reckon by summer the grass will cover it so no more dirt patch .

Surfin Turf would never have accepted that weak excuse. :-)(

BTW. He's still around. Just not on here.

95% of real surfers are probably still around Trev, just not on here.

Yeah true. But I don't know where 95% of them are.

I did expect perfectly manicured lawns and edges and also to see tomato plants.

That is a great spray though, Mario.
