Re: Where did you surf today ?

Your standard McTavish mal has a lot of tail lift and turns well off the tail. However....Steves right....get up there and go for the nose. Yeah, mine has a lot of lift in the tail for sure, just getting my initial bottom turns sorted at this stage. Try turning off the inside rail from too far forw...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Had a nice little sesh on my mal this morning, it's a 2 + 1 fin set-up.

Boomerang......pissed around on the old fish. Marginal but the best on offer. The crew appeared to be transplanted straight from Avalon. Thought it would improve as the tide dropped but it got worse.
What’s going on, is it a long weekend in NSW? Or normal weekend up there these days?

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I saw that on FB this morning too. Wonder if he’s ever done others and how much of a punt the design is. He’s really broadened his design parmeters over the last few years compared the old days of the classic shovel nosed Caves and Spoggies board.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Usual ritual body bash with the brother at main beach Southport. Nice warm water and a lot of hard work considering the small swell. Shook the cobwebs out.

Have had no trouble with Balin, but I get the thickest ones in 7’
