You don’t pay extra. It just counts to your Kg allowance

Yeah but I think it has to be booked under sporting goods from memory, Or maybe i'm thinking of a different airline. Cranked will know.

I think it was Scoot steve and salty were referring to MM. I've never flown on Scoot.

Good article by Ben Mondy in Tracks. It's an entry in a surfer's diary, circa 2018.

Google up Asher Pacey riding his twin-fins ... he's the maestro. Mindblowing surfing.

Talking boards not surfers. Curren on a fish is insane surfing at Bawa.

For HPS surfing the cut back is just a set up manoeuvre for something more rad (unless it's a stylish last turn coming out of a barrel. Even then the job is done). I'd go as far to say any other board including long boards have nicer cut backs than a HPS.

I'm not saying if you ride a HPS your cutbacks are like skitty transition turns. Or am I ? :wink:

I've been riding my twinny near on exclusively for 2 weeks since I got it (surfing everyday) so I'm not biased against them. Depending on the wave, I like them both.
