If it was 7.2 or maybe 7.6 I would.
It’s a lot of board.

The 6'10 Wombat has really come into its own in small waist high conditions. Had a great afternoon yesterday, there was just three of us, the other two on 8' longboards. Wave after wave, super fun - great glide and acceleration. Ditto this morning.

Two days ago I was dropping into some double overhead waves. And earlier in the month it was in solid overhead.

It did take me a while to get used to it, unlike the Bonzer which was immediate.

The board is a great all rounder, a one board quiver - good in all conditions, master of none. I reckon it would be great for the average east coast conditions and for Perth.

It's definitely a keeper. I'd take it to Bali for November to March but not the rest of the year.

How's the crowds at the moment? The Surfers of Bali insta account had a clip of Keramas with a million people on it. Quieter on your side?

Very quiet.

You can't rely on forecasts for the wind (it changes on an hourly basis) and the swell at this time of the year, you have to go and look every hour or so - most surfers can't/don't do this.

So about half the time I score OK conditions with only a few other surfers, the other half its bad conditions and/or a dozen or so surfers.

Also, the other side has opened up and at least 50% of surfers are now concentrating on those right handers

Surfers of Bali Site is usually fun to watch. It shows the incidental side of a session....plus the photographer seems to have an eye for girls butts.

Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.
