And then you'll surf like Josh Kerr.
On those bigger indo days in the vid I'd probably like a quad or a channel bottom thruster.

Not many people could even dream of surfing like Kerr, but it proves that modern twins perform in the big stuff.

I'd be on a quads for sure ... but then again, I mostly am, although I've been having a bit of fun with tri-fins of late.

Yeah well I’m not josh Kerr. I did however ride a twinny one time at rennies bombie at double overhead and it held in fine. Kinda like high speed skate bowl lines.

Anyway. Sorted. Just walked out with a 6’3 McCoy nugget. Sticker price $825, got it for $700.

And beancalipers, the big chunky round tail holds in fine. Foots right over the back fin, McCoy thruster fins are 10% bigger than large standard fins, and the rails though rounded full and soft hold very well.

I’ve pushed my old nugget hard off the bottom, and off the top, right in the bowl and steepest sections, and it holds just fine.

I had a 6'4" years ago - might have to indulge - be back in the water in a few weeks will be perfect for paddling with a busted wing :-D-:

Same here, no matter how hard I push it always holds and just turns better.

had a dig at blue bay. was kinda ok. shoulder to head and a half high, washy conditions given the ESE wind and jumbled ex-TC swell. but still pretty fun. some of the sets linked thru, but it was all about the reform, the walled up inside section to carve up. the 6'3 vs the 6'6 nugget felt much the same, just a bit more nimble. fkn happy i didnt bite the bullet on some JS whatevs

Looked pretty jumbled when I had a look this morning. Plenty of swell about. That’s the sort of wave I would imagine a McCoy going okay in.There’s a few reefs breaking way out off the Entrance that I haven’t seen breaking ever before. Like about a kilometre off shore. Big tides and north swell.

Getting close :-D-:

Surprised by the swell today. Really sweepy, rips everywhere and seemed way more powerful than I thought it would be.

It was a shitty swell. The size and punch was there but breaking like first shot of billiards

Today was one of those days when just one wave makes it all worthwhile.
Caught a few before the crowd arrived in force, but one was an absolute screamer and a bit over 200 metres long.

What on earth are you dribbling on about? I went as far as blue bay and was wearing a Judas Priest shirt. And Las Vegas is a shithole. I’d never wear a LV shirt

Today. 3 hours north Maroubra. Lumpy 3-4 foot, with some ok peaks on offer
