Shite, Munro must have put his prices up since last time I dropped in about two years ago now. Nice boards though. I had a " midlength" of his years ago. First one I ever had actually.

I’d love to Steve. But too many boards already. Mortgage and all that.

If I could have just two boards it’d be a 6’4 2+1 pinched in diamond tail w 4 or 6 channel bottom. And a sleek 7’2 Dave Parmenter widow maker with pintail at around 20.5 wide.

Wide point forward FTW for me
For those south coast waves. Werri point would be nice with a 2+1 under foot. The whole fin vs. tail set up on 2+1 is a trip. Not sure anyone has really nailed a "go to" design.

Actually how did Jimmy go with his 2+1 I wonder?

I like wide point forward for anything that isn’t summer wind slop

I have to point out a few years ago I mentioned front foot and back foot orientation and got taken to task by some "experts" on here.

If one is in Wyong for a couple of days, where would one surf? My knowledge of the Central Coast is thin.

Try Soldiers and Pelicans at Norah Head.

It might be solid. Not sure how good and fit you are and most of the locals are pretty good surfers.

You can paddle out at Box Head right in front of Woy Woy if you aren't scared of sharks. Longest left on the East Coast when it's breaking. Tell them Beanie sent you :-D-:

Copacabana, McMasters and Avoca are much closer than Pelican. As is Terrigal. Entrance has tons of waves if you know where to look. Don't think you will be doing much surfing this weekend unless you are in the Nick/ Haychie League of fitness.

Avocas not working today.

I've heard North Entrace can be ok as well.

Side note Wyong to Norah Head is 25 mins. To Avoca 35 mins.

Although not as the crow flies. Yep, nowhere between Woy Woy and Norah Head gets any waves :wink:

Yep. It looks sweet. But I’m in Sydney. And would want to feel it up first. Thanks anyway.
