What about a top 10 only event, before the final event of the season.
Let em practice all week but don’t broadcast it then do it all in one day.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these. 6’0 34 litres.

Have you put it under your arm yet BA? Wouldn’t pull the trigger until you feel one up.
What about the Medina board ss is raving about? They have pretty high litres. Handle a frozen dog for sure.
Not yet. Never bought a board without putting it under the arm (apart from customs). They don’t have a 6’0 in the rack at the moment. Maybe next week.

I’m riding a 6’0 33 litres at the moment Steve. I’ll just have to wait till I see one in the flesh to see if it’s blobby. I probably need a board a bit blobby these days anyway.

surfing's dead fellas. it's just reality.

... meanwhile skating continues to rise like the fallen phoenix. this week in the 10ft pool with about two and a half of feet vert, i touched the coping on my 8.0 rodriguez running 54mm wheels. no helmet, no pads. possibly reckless.

when i got out a few young pros from the local shop were telling me how one of their pro mates was in the pool a while back and broke his wrist so bad the bones were sticking out. i'm not sure i'll go in that pool again. haha


i can't remember the last time surfing stoked me out like that.
Take it to the skateboard thread Wheels.

Fred Rubble is a pretty nice choice for Sydney I reckon. Older design but so so fun.

That Chilli. Rounded pin, wonder if there would be enough give in the back end for the next 6 months. That’s a question not a statement.
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.

I’m a big fan of round tails. My Rare Bird pretty much has the same tail and I find there’s plenty of release (not that I rip or anything).

If you have the sister board probably makes sense to get it then.

do you need a newy BA or is just a desire to perk things up?

Bit of both. My Rare Bird is pretty trashed. Light glassing, sunken deck. Not overly convinced with my Psycho Killer. A bit too stiff and boggy.

Watching a bit of the paddle puddle pro.
