Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Ah your secret’s out black duck, you have comically short upper arms, like a T-Rex.
Only people with normal length (or longer) humerus bones have trouble getting their arms out of chest zip wetsuits.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

I despise my chest zip steamer, despise it. It’s the most inflexible, difficult to get out of, stupid fuschia thing ever made, and all the extra complication of making it probably adds to the price.
I’m with Steve, there was never anything wrong with the back zip

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Had a body surf at Main Beach with the bro and son yesterday morning, pretty messy but plenty of energy in it. Another swim this morning at Burleigh, nice clean conditions, some good little waves coming through and not as crowded as I expected. Mal comp on, showing how it’s done. Super consistent sw...

I'll be on the Goldy in 8 days, too far away for a look at the crystal ball?

Read it and not sure exactly what he’s getting at but if it’s what I think then it doesn’t make sense to me.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Heath Joske on Equinor. My gut feeling, based on having a few friends in the maritime industry, is that drilling will go ahead, not by BP for now but there will be others once Statoil / Equinor hit the jackpot. There are certain morons here in SA who are pro oil drilling in the bight, like a mayor o...

Something a bit exotic. Looks like one of Rustt’s covers too.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’ve got to go to Singapore in a few weeks for work and am going to have a week surfing on the way back. Was gonna come back through Bali and see where the waves are but seeing as I’m further West I’d thought I’d check out some land based options on Sumatra to minimise travel time. Was thinking abo...

just to drop the fcuken hammer again I've been on a transition surf movie bender and that seq of MP at Kirra on Morning of the Earth is still a complete jaw dropper.

Re: mctavish boards

Decided to give the carver a miss, the guy selling sent me this pic this morning, I think he's asking too much for it and from what I've seen of GSI boards the glass jobs weren't great a few years ago. Also he can't tell me if it's EPS or PU and it was a bit of a drive so I'll pass. https://beta-sta...

Re: mctavish boards

Carvers are great boards IMHO, a 7'7 or 7'11 would suit you well MM MM, what I think Cranked is saying is that you might need to go a little easier on the pie floaters before the 7’6” is a feasible option. I turn 61 tomorrow too Foamy :oops: Nah I still use my 6’ 7” Miller Fish sometimes, so it won...

Re: mctavish boards

@Beanpole....I’ve got my eye on a McTavish Carver on Gumtree, 7’6”
Don’t know what the construction is, eps or pu.
Did they come in both? Have you still got one? Good board?
