Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

I don't even have a Zap, too hard to surf for my mediocre abilities.

Re: Get this!

Oh well, I'm going to make my own fins from now on. Roy told me he has stopped producing the printed polycarbonate fins.

Re: Get this!

Roy is not the only one who thinks that BLEF fins are very efficient but hard to manufacture: See this Video starting from 0:24:30 .

DARPA had a play around with bumpy fins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vICFah-aDFY

Re: Geoff McCoy Surfboards Collectors Corner

Would the double ender be good for weak summer longboard type waves??. Single fin Yeah, absolutely, the difference between the TSA 6'8 and the 7' was huge, but its not a mal by any means. I have 3 2+1 boards that I ride around Perth (6'4 fat arsed wombat, 7'10 Takayama egg and a custom 7' pin tail ...

Re: Ask Carroll

Thank you very much Nick, it was a most interesting read. Hope you got something out of it as well.

If you get to try out a McCoy one day, I'd still like to know what you think about it.

Ciao! I'm out of here, too.

Re: New Generation Composite McCoys

Sorry MrMic, but you're going to hate me. I've owned four Surftech 7'11'' single fins over the last 10 years, the most recent about 4 months ago. Even took one to Indo and surfed good waves on it. They've always been disappointing, for me they offer a very restricted performance subset of a McCoy t...

Re: New Generation Composite McCoys

Nice mate hues it ride? The wooden McCoy got some stiff competition soon after I finally got it: The fabled 7'11 Surftech Single Fin Nugget. I had been chasing one for years and did not think I'd ever get one. Well. I did! So, I have been surfing the Surftech much more often than the wooden version...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Comparing Shark Shield versions Freedom7 and Surf7: . . . The mounting kit for the Surf7 is designed to be integrated into the tail pad, but it needs some sort of cover to use when surfing without the Shark Shield. http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk217/Mr_Mik/Shark%20Zapper%20vs%20GWS/DSC_0145-1...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

No MrMik, Qld does not seem to provide good public stats on that, that is partly why the estimates hearing was interesting. NSW has much better published stats. Peruse their report. It is seems very good. Let's assume it is accurate. I think go to table 7, Page 20, which is Page 26 of the PDF. Thou...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

It was interesting to read the Qld shark catch figures. From the ABC Shark nets or drum lines will remain off 82 beaches from Cairns in far north Queensland to the Gold Coast. In the 2014-15 financial year, 621 sharks had been caught, including eight great white sharks, 251 tiger sharks, 111 bull s...

Re: Nth NSW sharks. Can they p!ss off already?

Mrmik, I thought that the thinner red and black cable in the second last photo was to be used to attach to the leg rope plug as a back up in case the tail pad comes unstuck. I hear ya about getting zapped, I used mine at Cabarita a few days ago and when I turtled under a wave the antennae was next ...

The egg. It was laid by something very much like a chicken but not quite. In that egg was a perversion of Nature, a mutant, strangely unlike its parents. They raised it as their own...but secretly harboured a horror of what they had unleashed on the world. Correct! You are the first person to give ...
