Re: Epoxy boards

So if you wanted more float than your current board, could you just go the exact same dimensions because of the extra floatiness of epoxy, and would the performance be relatively the same?

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

Again it will raise the question...Rebel/alternative pro tour? Yes there are a million things to consider, but just hypothetically if there was a model that worked financially and logistically and someone was willing to bankroll it, how enticing would it be for a pro who may be sick of where the Wsl...

Re: Snapper Quik Pro 2018

Was that last wave of Hermes against Ace really just a 4? Size of the claim was probably out of proportion but otherwise thought it would be enough.

Re: Change to WSL format (or rumour has it)

Won't somebody think of the poor struggling youngsters!? How will little keanu-braiiden make it big now?

Re: Change to WSL format (or rumour has it)

Given they are suggesting the season starts in Hawaii in Feb and ends in September somewhere, where does that leave the Pipe Masters as a tour event? Interesting that it wasn't mentioned.

Thanks Saltman!
Plenty of easy and cheapish accomodation options? Happy to rough it, as long we're not kidnapped by rabid monkeys.

Re: Fiji Pro Cloudbreak 2017

Off for the day again. What's the forecast looking like? Is there something reliable on the way or are they simply crossing their fingers for decent swell?
