Totes. Or even going short at all, especially bigger lugs.

Looks like there might be a small pulse on Saturday morning.

Took it for a paddle up at the beachie on Saturday. Conditions less than ideal. 2ft @ the alley.
Was nice to get a feel for it. Great size board for me. Love how it paddles. Can’t wait to get it in that 3-4ft range.

Nice looking board jet, I'd love to put it through its paces.

A new season on the bukit starts for me soon, its gonna be a long one as usual and the best year ever I reckon.

First up it will be the last try for the zots. This time with Winged keels or 6.5" centres and medium fronts. I think the keels are going to work best though.

After that it will be the nuggets (6'8, 7', 7'4 and 8'), starting with the small ones and moving on to the bigger ones as the season progresses.

Wooo fcuking hoo.

Thinking about traction

1. Flat slater designs black
2. Flat slater designs grey
3. Versatraction 3/4 deck coverage
4. Wax

I had a board with versatraction for a while. It’s pretty good stuff. I would get it again for sure. No wax is brilliant, in the water and not getting wax all through the car.

Just for nostalgia's sake, I'll throw in some classic Steve.
