took the bourton banana board out yesterday morning, with a mild hangover. surf was shitter than it looked and was mostly just paddling around aimlessly.

did a sick floater on it though and thought for all money I'd nosedive the landing. saved by the obscene amount of rocker.

Love the bottom, is that one piece, or a few strips?. I'm due for another JD and I love the timber in the bottom of them.

Without looking at it I'm pretty sure it's several strips...concave deck feels great under foot too...

" post your early eighties belly channel thruster sickness "

Just picked this up for $50 off an old bloke in dulwich hill. A garage clean out.

He had no idea about surfboards. Gave me the measurements in centimetres over the phone.

Works out at 6'3 x 19.75' x 2.75

Thanks. Lusted after a JD for a while now.

LOL no this is where the board sleeps, the wife and I have our own room. But sometimes I sneak away in the night!

What. The box centre fin ? The fins are all the same size. I've moved the fin right to the back. Fk manoeuvrability, it'll turn regardless. I'd rather drive and projection thanks very much.

Took it out on the weekend in some solid 4-5 footers. So far it feels good. Holds in well on late steep takeoffs and bottom turns.

I posted elsewhere but I've got something really similar. 6'2 t&c thruster shaped by The Buzz outta Byron. 4 belly channels, box rails, pretty wide super flat deck. Its not the greatest board but it still goes alright. Needs a bit of backfoot heft when turning it.

I found one like that in a mates backyard half buried, it was a t n C, a gypo I think. Pretty beat up but gee it was fun to surf. Love that flat deck and boxy rails.
Passed it on to a kid.
