Re: Just general surfing stuff

"City surfers". Lol. Shit stirring.

BUT, I spoke to a few pretty good surfers about their experiences in the last run of swell and a few humbly admitted they were so tuned into average beach breaks that they felt they sucked hard in lined up good juice.

Re: Midlengths

Put a pronounced V about 1.5 ft past the fins all the way to the tail and soften the rails at the back. Might give it a bit more flow. Ah f&ck ignore me I've been caught out with low railed pins before. Great in lined up juice but a bit stiff in less than stellar. Just a minute. Where is Saltman hid...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Fair point thuddo.

Saw a fair few guys this week who could have used a few extra inches.

As the panzer commander said to the milkmaid, of course.
Speaking of. March yourself to the Sickness thread and post that review of the Shiva. Looking at a 6'4 and have a few questions.

Re: post your modern day sickness

Where the f&ck is that Shiva review. I'm looking at a 6'4 and I gots to know how it bottom turns and how fast it is into waves. I CANNOT handle boards that are too slow!!
